BT offers Worldpay's Jansen CEO role -Bloomberg

LONDON, Oct 18 (Reuters) - BT Group has made an offer to Worldpay Inc's Philip Jansen to become the British telecoms company's new chief executive, Bloomberg reported on Thursday, citing sources.

Jansen, the 51-year-old outgoing co-CEO of Worldpay, could still turn down the BT offer, Bloomberg said bloom.bg/2PH0LwH.

BT could announce a new CEO along with its first-half results on Nov.1, Bloomberg added, citing a person familiar with the company's plans.

Last month Sky News reported that BT was in advanced discussions to appoint Jansen.

A BT Group representative was not immediately available for a comment. (Reporting by Shubham Kalia in Bengaluru Editing by David Goodman)
