Tony Chanmugam

As CFO, Tony has been instrumental in setting the direction for BT, particularly over the last six years as he has worked to transform our cost base. He is a member of the BT Board and reports directly to the Group CEO.
Despite the enormous scope of his day job, Tony consistently commits time and energy to improving BT’s position. Recently, this has included; sponsoring BT’s Ethnic Minority network, developing a specific mentoring programme for BAME employees, reviewing recruitment and mentoring within his business area and kicking off a detailed review of all of BT’s development and leadership options with a view to accelerating BAME development across BT.
Tony is a strong and visible leader on BAME diversity in BT. He uses the influence he has across the business to close engagement and progression gaps for our BAME employees – whether through structural programmes, or via the personal sponsorship and mentoring he offers to senior BAME individuals.
