Board of directors
Senior management team
In 2016 we made a change to our corporate structure and new appointments to our senior management team.
In March we introduced a new business unit, Technology Innovation and Strategy which reflects our greater focus on innovation and our ambition to become a world class technology company.
We made a number of important external appointments with Stephen Elop and Kevin Russell joining the company, as well as Alexandra Badenoch who will join us in August. We also announced three internal appointments with Cynthia Whelan, Joe Pollard and Will Irving joining the senior leadership team.
We farewelled Gordon Ballantyne, Karsten Wildberger and Tracey Gavegan from Telstra. Stuart Lee stood down from the role of Group Executive Telstra Wholesale and has since given notice of his retirement, and Kate McKenzie also recently announced her retirement from Telstra. We thank our outgoing executives for their service and the significant contributions they have made to Telstra.
