    BCE's George Cope to retire as head of Canada's largest telecom-media company

    The announcement Friday that George Cope will retire in January after nearly 12 years as chief executive of BCE Inc. has focused fresh attention on the sprawling telecom and media giant as the industry undergoes fundamental changes. The Montreal-based company, which owns Bell Canada, CTV Inc., and a portion of Maple Leaf Sports and Entertainment Ltd., said chief operating officer Mirko Bibic will take over from Cope on Jan. 5, 2020. The COO position had been vacant since Cope held it prior to replacing Michael Sabia as CEO in 2008.

    BCE Names Bibic to Succeed Cope as CEO for 5G Push

    (Bloomberg) -- BCE Inc. named Mirko Bibic to take over as chief executive officer of Canada’s largest telecommunications company by market value when George Cope retires in January.“The time is right for Mirko to take our company to the next level,” Cope said Friday in a statement. “He has been front and center in the successful execution of Bell’s broadband leadership strategy from its beginning.”Cope, 57, who has been with BCE for 14 years in total, will retire on Jan. 5.Bibic, 51, is currently chief operating officer of Montreal-based BCE. He’s led a range of consumer and residential initiatives including the launch of Bell Wireless Home Internet to small towns and rural communities; accelerating Bell prepaid wireless; Bell Media’s launch of the new Crave streaming service; and strategic planning for Bell’s 5G future.Under Cope’s leadership, BCE expanded its wireless operations and executed investments and acquisitions valued at more than C$15 billion ($11.5 billion), including brands such as Bell Aliant, Virgin Mobile Canada, Manitoba Telecom Services and Maple Leaf Sports & Entertainment, owner of the NBA Champion Toronto Raptors.The shares of the telecom giant dropped 0.2% to C$59.60 at 10:27 a.m. in Toronto. BCE has returned 193% to shareholders, including dividends, since Cope became president and CEO on July 2, 2008, pushing its market value to C$53.6 billion. That compares with 271% for competitor Telus Corp., 169% for Rogers Communications Inc., and 61% for the S&P/TSX Composite Index.As of the first quarter, the company has posted 54 consecutive quarters of year-over-year adjusted Ebitda growth, according to the statement.The move comes as a surprise to some analysts. “Some may have assumed that Mr. Bibic might replace Mr. Cope during 2020 or perhaps the start of 2021, but our view is that the majority of people thought that Mr. Cope would lead the company into the 5G era over the next two to three years,” National Bank of Canada analyst Adam Shine said in a note Friday.It’s unlikely that Bibic will change much of the focus and strategy of BCE, Shine added.The leadership change comes as Justin Trudeau’s government continues its security review of 5G, weighing whether to ban Huawei Technology Co. from the the next-generation network. BCE’s Bell Canada and Telus are the most exposed Canadian telecos if Trudeau decides to freeze out Huawei. BCE will follow government rules before including any equipment from the Chinese titan, Cope told BNN Bloomberg TV.The executive added that live content for sports will be the future of the sporting program. “Video consumption is absolutely exploding,” he said, adding the company is well positioned to take it forward.(Updates with shares in 6th paragraph.)\--With assistance from Simran Jagdev, Natalie Wong and Aoyon Ashraf.To contact the reporter on this story: Jacqueline Thorpe in Toronto at jthorpe23@bloomberg.netTo contact the editors responsible for this story: Jillian Ward at jward56@bloomberg.net, David Scanlan, Steven FrankFor more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.com©2019 Bloomberg L.P.
