ADT CEO Is Out

By: IPVM Team, Published on Sep 04, 2018

ADT's CEO Tim Whall is out, 'retiring' in less than 3 months, ADT announced.

This comes amidst financial challenges, with the company's stock down significantly from its earlier 2018 IPO, and the company facing problems with employees protesting the CEO. However, it is a surprising move, as industry veteran Whall had been the face of the company and the preceding Protection 1 / ADT combination.

In this note, we examine the challenges facing ADT, the outside-the-industry CEO replacement and ADT's future.
