He also holds dir­ect­or positions at set-top box manufacturer Pace and US-based Advanced Micro Devices.

The Birmingham University grad­uate also held roles with Texas Instruments, Fairchild and BIS Mac­intosh and gained his initial in­dustrial experience with GEC Tele­com­munications.

“I’m delighted to welcome Mike to BT. He has a decade of board experience and brings with him in-depth experience of the technology industry. He will be a great asset for BT and its board,” said BT chairman Sir Michael Rake.
