Primus names Bhatia's successor

Staffer from its international parent company to take over Australian operations

Primus Australia has revealed Tom Mazerski as its new CEO, taking over from Ravi Bhatia who announced his retirement last month.

Richard Baumfield had stepped in as interim CEO after Bhatia decided to step down from the business he had been involved with since its inception in 1995.

Bhatia said he will try his hand in other industries including the resource sector but will continue to work with Primus as an advisor to its board of directors.

Mazerski previous role was Primus Telecommunications Group Incorporated (PTGi) US retail and network services president. He has been with the company since November 2009.

Primus Australia is part of PTGi. Mazerki will also become PTGi’s chief marketing officer. He will be based in Sydney.

"Having been involved in projects for [US-based telco] Verizon in 1991 to 92 in Australia and being here now for several weeks, I know just what a special place this is,” Mazerski said in a statement. “The new Primus Australia will be an exciting place to work for our employees and our customers will begin to see positive changes right away.”

Primus is gearing up to launch its Come Home to Primus marking campaign with its “No Worries” branded phone plans.

According to PTGi, Mazerski has 30 years experience in marketing and telecommunications. He had worked with Verizon for 20 years holding various roles. Mazerski eventually left Verizon to establish two communications companies.
