NBN Co names new chairperson

Ten Network Holdings director, Siobhan McKenna, joins NBN Co

Ten Network Holdings director, Siobhan McKenna, has joined NBN Co as its newest chairperson.

She replaces Harrison Young, who stepped down from his position on March 21 after three years in the role. The AFR reported that Young did not seek reappointment.

McKenna has thus far served as a non-executive director at NBN Co and is a non-executive director of the Australian Ballet.

Her appointment follows the NBN Co board meeting today, which addressed a delay in the rollout of fibre optic cable by about three months.

“Upgrading Australia’s telecommunications infrastructure is an important national project and I am pleased to be appointed as chairman as the company continues to connect more homes and businesses,” she said.

NBN Co CEO, Mike Quigley, said McKenna’s appointment was a result of her track record on the board over the past four years, her strong business advisory background and her grasp of the scale and complexity of Australia’s largest national infrastructure project.

“It will be of great benefit as we continue to roll out the NBN across the country,” he added.
