Liberty Global, the world’s largest international TV and broadband provider, announced the appointment of Lutz Schüler as CEO of Virgin Media, the company’s operations in the UK and Ireland, effective June 11, 2019.

Schüler joined Virgin Media as Chief Operating Officer in September 2018, after eight years running Liberty Global’s operations in Germany. Tom Mockridge, who has been Virgin Media CEO since Liberty Global first acquired the business in 2013, is leaving the company to base himself again in Italy with his family.

The company is now spearheading the advance of the thriving digital economy in the UK and Ireland with the largest, most successful programme to connect homes and businesses to broadband.

Mike Fries, CEO, Liberty Global and Chairman of Virgin Media
Since joining Virgin Media last year, he has made an immediate impact, uniting the team around a clear strategy for continued, best-in-class growth in the UK and Ireland. Tom, Lutz and I have prepared for this moment for some time now, so Lutz will hit the ground running from day one.
