in brief Telstra has appointed an acting replacement to David Moffatt, head of its consumer division, who had previously flagged his resignation.
Glenice Maclellan has been appointed to the role of acting head of Telstra consumer, the telco's largest unit. Maclellan, who has been with Telstra since 2006, was most recently executive director of consumer category marketing and operations.
She had joined Telstra following a stint as the vice president of US mobile company Cingular and played a lead role in its 2005 merger with AT&T Wireless. From 1998 to 2002 Maclellan was also chief marketing officer at Czechoslovakian mobile telco, Eurotel.
Moffatt, who had announced his departure in September, will leave Telstra on 30 November. The executive had driven Telstra's revamped consumer profile with the roll-out of hundreds of T[Life] stores, and was believed to be in line for the top job twice — after the departure of Ziggy Switkowski in 2004, and again after Sol Trujillo in 2009.
