Meager has sat unofficially in the role for about six months, according to a spokesperson for the company, following the departure of former managing director Craig Dower.

The new chief executive didn't step up until now, the spokesperson said, due to the need to transition Meager's additional role of group chief financial officer for Netstar's wider Asia-Pacific operations.

"There were also some changes for the group structure that were being effected," the spokesperson said, adding Netstar's Singaporean, Taiwanese and Australian subsidiaries would now operate individually.

"Netstar Australia is still legally part of the Netstar Group," they said, "but we'll operate as our own entity down here."

NetStar has also appointed Gareth Chang to the overall group chairman role. Some of Chang's recent roles include the chairman and CEO spots at Asian TV operator Star TV, and an executive directorship of its owner News Corporation.

In a statement, Meager said Netstar's Australian division had recently refined its direction and strategy to focus on IP networks (particularly network management), and had strengthened its commitment to providing services around vendor Cisco's hardware.

Netstar has also appointed James Constable to the new role of professional services process Manager. Constable will report directly to Meager.
