Level 3’s CEO returns after 2-month medical leave

BROOMFIELD — Level 3 Communications Inc.’s chief executive Jeff Storey has returned to work after a two-month medical leave of absence.

The Broomfield-based telecommunications company announced in February that Storey would be taking time off to recover from heart surgery.

Chief financial officer Sunit Patel served as interim CEO while Storey was out.

“The board is pleased Jeff has made such a speedy recovery and is back, in good health, at full capacity,” Level 3 chairman James Ellis said in a release. “We’d also like to extend our thanks and appreciation to Sunit and the entire executive management team for their leadership during Jeff’s absence.”

Storey has led Level 3 as CEO for the past three years.
