Vodafone Australia CEO to Leave the Company
Published on: 12th Dec 2013
Vodafone Australia's CEO Bill Morrow is leaving the company less than 2 years after he joined the firm as a noted turn around manager.
Bill Morrow joined the company in March 2012 with a commitment to stabilise Vodafone Australia's economic performance, fix its network issues and turn around the business.
"While it has not been an easy decision to leave Vodafone, we have fixed the fundamentals, stabilised the business, invested heavily in the network and we are already starting to see signs of customers coming back." he said in a statement.
He is staying in Australia though, as he is moving to head up the government's National Broadband Network through the next stage of its development.
He will join the company in the New Year, although the exact date he leaves Vodafone will be dependent on finding a successor.
Mr Morrow's appointment by the Board of NBN comes as the company lays out the framework for delivering very fast broadband to Australian homes and businesses sooner and at less cost to taxpayers than previously was the case. The new approach is contained in the Strategic Review of the NBN which the company presented to the Government today.
