nbn CEO to step down by year end 2018

04 April 2018

Mr Bill Morrow, CEO of nbn, has informed the Board and Government of his intention to step down from his position by year end 2018 by which time he will have led the organisation for four years and nine months.

The 2018-21 Corporate Plan confirms that by the end of this year 80 per cent of the population will be able to connect to the national broadband network.

The rollout is proceeding at pace, and the project will be finished in 2020, on time, on budget, and the national broadband network will be fit-for-purpose.

Mr Morrow said:

“I believe that as the company prepares to confront the new challenges ahead, this is the right time to hand over the reins for the next phase of this incredible project and for me to plan for the next step in my career.”

Chairman Dr Ziggy Switkowski said:

“The country has been fortunate to have Bill lead this extraordinary project.  While we will be sorry to see him leave, Bill has built a resilient, performance-driven organisation which will build on his legacy.”

A global search will be undertaken for his successor.
