New NBN Co Executive Chairman Dr Ziggy Switkowski has announced the appointment of Mr JB Rousselot to the newly created position of Head of Strategy and Transformation.
This role will incorporate the current activities within the Quality group and also the corporate planning, strategy and decision support functions of the office of the Chief Finance Officer.
Mr Rousselot will lead the Strategic Review process that is commencing and then help manage the implementation of recommendations and their incorporation into the company’s 2014-17 Corporate Plan.
Dr Switkowski said, “Mr Rousselot will help oversee the continuing transition process as NBN Co moves to deliver the Government’s policy of deploying a broader mix of technologies to ensure every Australian is able to receive very fast broadband.”
Mr Rousselot will draw on more than 15 years of experience in the Telecommunications and Media sector in Australia and other roles in civil engineering and finance.
As a member of the Executive Committee, Mr Rousselot will report to the CEO.
Following these changes, the position of Head of Quality has become redundant which will see Mr Mike Kaiser leave the company.
According to Dr Switkowski, “Mr. Kaiser was one of NBN Co’s first employees and has fulfilled important leadership roles in the formation of NBN Co and its development over four years. He is a well-regarded and committed executive having worked across the company on many of its biggest initiatives. I thank him for his many contributions and wish him well for the next phase of his career.”
