STATEMENT BY THE LEADER OF THE OPPOSITION, THE HON KIM C BEAZLEY MP

 

NEW TELSTRA CEO

 

 

I congratulate Dr Ziggy Switkowski on his appointment as CEO of Telstra.

 

Dr Switkowski has a wealth of experience in the telecommunications industry in Australia, and is eminently qualified to lead Telstra through the technological changes and challenges ahead.

 

From my personal knowledge of and dealings with Dr Switkowski, I am sure he will be a strong and effective advocate for the interests of the corporation.

 

I, and the Labor Party, have had a good relationship with him in his previous senior corporate roles, and I expect we will continue to have a good and constructive dealings with him and with Telstra.

 

I also extend my congratulations and best wishes to the outgoing Telstra chief executive, Mr Frank Blount, for the distinguished service he has given the corporation during his term.
