John Simon to replace Jim Hassell as head of product and sales

Comments

NBN Co has made two new appointments following the resignation of Jim Hassell, naming John Simon as head of product and sales, and Caroline Lovell to the NBN Co executive committee.

Former SingTel Optus and Telstra executive, Simon, will join NBN Co in 2013 to replace Hassell who has resigned to take up the role of group CEO at transmission network business, Broadcast Australia, where he previously served as chief operating officer.

“He leaves the company to build on his achievements in developing the Wholesale Broadband Agreement and the associated negotiations with industry, which culminated in the signing up to the NBN telephone and Internet service providers that represent over 95 per cent of the retail market,” NBN Co CEO, Mike Quigley, said.

Hassell will depart in mid-February 2013, following a handover period to Simon. Simon has had experience at SingTel Optus for more than a decade in a number of senior roles, most recently as strategy, corporate development and transformation managing director.

He has also previously served at Telstra in the 1990s in its multimedia business.

“He brings to the company a wealth of experience in telecommunications and technology strategy that will help consolidate relationships and continue to develop products that meet the requirements of our industry customers and consumers,” Quigley, said.

He also announced the promotion of Caroline Lovell, former principal of regulatory affairs, to the new role of head of regulatory affairs and industry analysis.

Just like Simon, Lovell will assume her new position in the new year and will report directly to Quigley.

“Caroline has demonstrated outstanding leadership in her development of the long-term regulatory framework governing access to the NBN. The document is currently going through the ACCC’s industry consultation process as part of its consideration of the undertaking,” Quigley added.
