T-Mobile and Sprint are the third and fourth largest wireless carriers, and though their combination has been blessed by the FCC and the US Justice Department, 15 states and the District of Columbia are suing to block the deal over concerns about what the proposed $26 billion merger could mean for the marketplace.

He is known as much for his bright-pink T-shirts and sneakers as he is for his rapid turnaround of T-Mobile from an also-ran into a top carrier. Both companies agreed to sell parts of each business to Dish, the pay-TV operator, to secure approval for the merger.

John Legere helped turn T-Mobile around.

With that success, Legere is reported to be in talks with SoftBank concerning a CEO position for WeWork, a office-sharing startup that SoftBank purchased the majority of in October.

A source familiar with the matter tells Fast Company Legere is just one of several potential candidates, and isn't necessarily the leading candidate.
