ISP Internode has made four senior staff redundant amid plans to restructure the organisation.
The redundancies included the company’s CIO, Frank Falco.
According to previous reports,other staff effected include DSLAM team lead, Matthew Moyle-Croft; IT systems project manager, Andrew Walton; and infrastructure leader, Mark Newton.
Managing director, Simon Hackett, has added CTO responsibilities to his portfolio.
The restructure was announced to staff on September 2.
“The four people who have left each played a great role at Internode, but there would have been too much overlap if those positions remained unchanged,” Internode CEO, Patrick Tapper, said in a statement.
“Simon is taking on the role of CTO in order to provide additional ‘hands-on’ leadership of this process.
“We have a vast amount of technical skill and knowledge at Internode, with many long-standing employees. It is very much full steam ahead at Internode.”
Tapper said the change was driven by the need to get Internode ‘match fit’ in terms of its internal structure to realise the opportunities created by the National Broadband Network (NBN).
Despite these departures, Internode stated it was actively hiring for its technology division, with 13 positions currently open.
The ISP has about 450 employees nationally with offices in Adelaide, Brisbane, Melbourne and Sydney.
