O'Kelly's responsibilities, which include Everything Everywhere’s external comms, CSR, public affairs and analyst relations, will now fall under the remit of comms director Stuart Jackson, who takes on a new role as director of comms and corporate affairs.
O’Kelly was previously T-Mobile’s UK corporate comms director and had been at the company for five years. He moved to Everything Everywhere when it became the owner of the UK mobile operations of Orange and T-Mobile 18 months ago.
It is thought that O’Kelly will leave at the end of the month. Everything Everywhere would not reveal if O'Kelly had resigned or was made redundant.
O’Kelly told PRWeek: ‘I hugely enjoyed my time at T-Mobile and Everything Everywhere although I feel the time is right for a change.'
O'Kelly added that he could not yet reveal his next job, but said that this was set to be announced 'very soon'.
The news follows a series of high profile changes at the company. CEO Olaf Swantee joined Everything Everywhere on 1 September, and axed 22 vice-presidents including Lysa Hardy, V-P of T-Mobile propositions, Ben Messore, V-P of strategy and Emin Gurdenli, VP of network.
A spokesperson from Everything Everywhere said of the cuts: ‘The new structure will help the company be more nimble and ensure it is keeping in touch with customers’ needs.’
