Inch will report to executive chairman and fellow former Acacia executive, Doug Campbell, and will be responsible for the roll-out and operation of the fibre network.

Inch, who will be based in Hobart, has been transferred to the Tasmania NBN Co from its parent company, the NBN Co, where he has served as a senior architect, according to a statement by the company.

"Adrian brings to NBN Tasmania deep experience in telecommunications particularly in managing large scale infrastructure projects," said Campbell.

Inch had also served as a senior project manager at Telstra, where he worked for 18 years, and has been a general manager for an IBM-Telstra joint venture. Like Campbell, he was also involved in the Acacia bid for the NBN.

The state has forged ahead with its roll-out in spite of current uncertainties over the telecommunications legislation that would pave the way for Telstra's separation and kick start the mainland's deployment.
