Alongside a move from its former parent today to sell stakes in tower operations for €2.5B, Altice USA (NYSE:ATUS) has hired Jean-Charles Nicolas to lead its burgeoning wireless operation.

Nicolas will be senior VP of Altice Mobile, the service that is expected to be available by 2019.

That service is powered through a full MVNO agreement with Sprint (NYSE:S), though Altice USA will connect to Sprint Nationwide with full control over its features, function and customer experience.

Nicolas had previously served as deputy CEO and CFO of Altice Dominicana.

Shares finished the regular session up 2.4%.
