NBN Co, the company responsible for rolling out Australia's National Broadband Network, has appointed ex-Telstra CIO John McInerney as its new CIO after Claire Rawlins' resignation in August this year.
According to the Australian Financial Review, McInerney will take over the role from 3 December 2012.
"We are delighted to welcome an executive of John's calibre and experience to this important role within the company. Our IT and systems are core to the NBN, and to the operation and delivery of a wholesale network designed to serve the people of Australia for decades to come," NBN Co said in a statement.
McInerney has more than 15 years of experience in the telecommunications and technology sector. He has been with HP since August last year, where he is currently the vice president of infrastructure technology, based out of Singapore.
McInerney was also the CIO for Telstra between 2008 and 2010, where he quit after several months of leave.
