BT Global Services' Global Government president Neil Rogers is retiring after 24 years at the telecoms company.

He will be replaced by current BT Global Health president Ian Dalton, who will "lead a newly-combined public sector team reflecting the coming together of health and government," BT said.

Rogers took up the role of Global Government president in 2010. Prior to this, he led BT's network solutions operations, was managing director of BT's network transformation programme, 21CN, and then BT Group global chief procurement officer.

According to TechMarketView analyst Richard Holway, in his role as Global Government president, Rogers "did a really good job at cleaning up some pretty difficult contracts, winning new ones and maintaining relationships with HM Government."

He also grew BT's network solutions operations from £1 billion to £3 billlion over five years, when he became responsible for the business in 1999, and negotiated the $3 billion network outsourcing deal with Reuters.

Meanwhile, Dalton was appointed BT Global Health president in May 2013, after 27 years' experience in the NHS. He had senior roles at the Department of Health and NHS England, including chief operating officer and deputy chief executive of the latter.
