Virgin Media has appointed Anthony Vollmer, the former head of Tesco Mobile, as its new director of connectivity.
The telecoms veteran, who has also run Plusnet and BT’s consumer fixed-line business, is now in charge of Virgin Media’s largest consumer business and will report directly into Dana Strong, chief operating officer of the cable company.

A bit of an unclear job title, I agree! Apparently it's a broader role than being head of mobile which he was originally approached to do.
My guess is he's in charge of the day to day consumer business.

Re: VM has appointed Anthony Vollmer as its new Director of Connectivity

I wonder if he needs to be periodically re-booted?

See how long the man can tolerate being messed around by Liberty Global before he packs it in.
