New Rogers CEO is ready to listen

Rogers Communications Inc.’s new chief executive officer is hoping to get an earful from some of the company’s more than 20,000 employees.

Guy Laurence, the British telecom executive who took the helm on Monday, plans to spend his first few months on the job travelling across Canada meeting with employees to hear their suggestions on improving the company. And he’ll do more than passively listen – Rogers insiders say he’ll use those ideas to build his plan.
