TORONTO, Ont. – Nadir Mohamed is retiring as the CEO and president of Rogers Communications in January 2014.
Mohamed will leave the top job at the corporation — the parent company of 680News — after taking over for founder Ted Rogers in 2009.
He joined the company in 2000 as chief operating officer.
“It’s truly a privilege to work with the Rogers family, the board, the leadership team and our employees to deliver for customers and shareholders and to set the foundation for the future,” Mohamed said in a statement.
“The company’s in great shape and it’s time to start the transition to the next generation of leadership.”
“Over the next year, I look forward to delivering strong results and to ensuring a seamless transition.”
The board will select a search firm and look internationally for a replacement. Mohamed will also take part in the selection process.
Edward Rogers and Melinda Rogers, the children of founder Rogers, will not seek the top job and will both be involved in the search process.
