Telecom New Zealand has promoted Chris Quin, the CEO of the company's IT subsidiary Gen-i, to the role of CEO of Telecom New Zealand's retail unit.
Quin, who was rumoured to be in the running for the Telecom New Zealand CEO position earlier this year before losing out to Simon Moutter, has been the CEO of Gen-i for the past four years. Prior to working for Telecom New Zealand, he was the chief financial officer of Mitel New Zealand.
Quin said that he was looking forward to the challenge.
"I am thrilled to take on a new challenge, as Telecom competes vigorously in the retail market and makes the most of massive technological changes, such as fibre and 4G, to bring outstanding new products and services to customers," he said in a statement.
Gen-i's General Manager of Operations Jo Allison will take on the role of acting CEO for Gen-i while the company looks to recruit a new CEO.
