nbn today announced the departure of Chief Operating Officer, Greg Adcock.
Mr Adcock joined nbn in November 2013 and has led the company’s network design and deployment activities including establishing a new industry partnership model and contract management framework.
Mr Adcock will move into an advisory role reporting direct to the Chief Executive Officer until his departure.
nbn Chief Executive Officer, Bill Morrow, said: “We appreciate Greg's contributions in advancing nbn and helping the company overcome many of the challenges it was facing in network delivery."
“Greg leaves the Network Engineering and Deployment team with strong leaders, ready to scale and accelerate the build of the nbn™ network,” said Mr Morrow.
Greg Adcock joined nbn nearly two years ago as Chief Operating Officer at a time when the network build was facing substantial challenges. Over the last two years, Greg has led the successful rebuilding of our delivery partner relationships, the stabilising and ramping up of the FTTP build program, the kickstart of the FTTN build, and the launch of our first satellite.
Mr Adcock thanked his team for their commitment over the past two years saying: "I am pleased to have been a part of the leadership team driving the progress made over the last two years. I can’t thank the nbn team enough for their focus and dedication and I will watch their continued progress with pride,” said Mr Adcock.
Peter Ryan, a veteran of the telco industry, and previously Executive General Manager Regional Deployment at nbn, will step into the interim role leading the Network Engineering and Deployment function while a search is undertaken for a permanent replacement.
