|~ Hobbs to Carver.|
He was portrayed by Hugo Napier.
Being a close supporter of Carver, Hobbs was tasked to arrange and report any news of havoc that would earn lots of ratings. He informed Carver of several floods in Pakistan, riots in Paris, and a plane crash in California (all of them presumably set up by Hobb's division), much to Carver's delight. Along with the other executives, Hobbs was told of Carver's next plan to draw attention to an imminent war between England and China, thanks to Stamper and Captain Scott commandeering a stealth ship to sink a British frigate and frame the Chinese Air Force for it.
However, this was not the case when James Bond and Wai Lin foiled Carver's next move of sending a stolen British missile into Beijing, destroying the stealth ship and killing Carver and his crew in the process. It is unknown what happened to Hobbs and the other executives; either they lost their jobs and got arrested for their involvement in Carver's plot, or they may have fled the authorities.
