JT Group appoints new CEO

Monday 25 April 2022

The Board of JT Group has announced its new Chief Executive Officer as Daragh McDermott.

Mr McDermott has taken over with immediate effect from the Interim CEO, John Diamond. Mr McDermott has worked for JT for more than 20 years and has played a key role across all of the company’s strategic decisions during that time.

“JT has a proud tradition of developing its people, and it is with great pleasure that we have appointed Daragh to the role of Chief Executive Officer,” said the Chairman of JT Group, Phil Male.

“I would also like to thank John Diamond for his hard work as Interim CEO - his calm and incisive leadership has been a real asset to all at JT."

On his appointment, Mr McDermott said the opportunity to helm the group is a huge privilege.

“Our ambitious investment plans for the next five years will see JT invest in excess of £100m in our networks and I want to ensure this is done in a way that benefits both the wider economies that we serve and every single customer that will be making use of the reliable and robust world-class networks that we operate,” he said.
