Laurence will step into the top Canadian media job on Dec. 2, a month before Mohamed is to leave Rogers Communications.
Before Vodafone, Laurence completed a number of media executive stints, including one at MGM Studios.
“Rogers is an iconic and well-respected company in a great country, and I’m looking forward to joining,” said Laurence in his own statement.
