Former Telstra Business chief joins nbn co

Former Telstra Business group managing director Paul Tyler has been appointed as nbn co's new chief customer officer for business, to support the company's foray into the enterprise market.

Tyler has more than 25 years' experience running ICT businesses across Europe, APAC and Australia and New Zealand.

Prior to joining Telstra in 2016, he was president for Asia–Pacific and Japan at Nokia and non-executive chairman of Australian managed services and network infrastructure provider BigAir Group.

Tyler's appointment will be effective 19 February. He is replacing the retiring John Simon.

"nbn has benefited greatly from John's leadership and many contributions over a five-year tenure. Over the last seven months, John has built a dedicated business segment team that Paul will now lead to take us to the next level," nbn co CEO Bill Morrow said.

"Paul is a high-calibre executive with significant experience and a proven track record. I'm delighted to have him as part of our team and look forward to seeing him drive significant momentum in this vital part of our business."

The appointment comes as nbn co prepares to accelerate its entry into the enterprise market by conducting trials involving providing an enterprise Ethernet service with initial speeds of up to 1 Gbps symmetrical.

The company separately announced the impending departure of its chief corporate affairs officer and gender diversity ambassador Karina Keisler.

Keisler will stay with the company until its full-year results are reported in mid-August. Morrow said the company will immediately commence a search for her replacement.
