According to the sources, Nestor Cano, executive vice president and chief information and digital officer at T-Mobile, will succeed East after his departure.

Nestor previously worked as chief operating officer at Sprint, managing cost reduction to strengthen the business.

In his new role at T-Mobile, Nestor is assigned with bringing T-Mobile and Sprint together to build a supercharged Un-carrier to offer high benefits to customers, employees, and shareholders.

Additionally, sources say T-Mobile could bring more layoffs among the employees of support teams, training, resource planning, and other back-end teams that are only sometimes customer-facing. The layoffs are expected throughout September and October.

As per several rumors, the company may cut off IC (Individual Contributor) roles, including store management or individual Mobile Experts. However, this assumption is based on rumors, and it is still unclear which positions will be cut.
