O’Sullivan said he knew of Russell’s intent to leave the telecommunications provider for some time.

“Several months ago Kevin told me that he wished to move on to other challenges on completion of this phase, after ensuring an orderly transition that embeds the strategic transformation he has lad,” he said.

O’Sullivan credits Russell with providing strong leadership throughout his two-year tenure at Optus.
