Bill Morrow, CEO of NBN, has informed the board and government of his intention to step down from his position by year end 2018 by which time he will have led the organisation for four years and nine months.
The 2018-21 NBN corporate plan confirms that by the end of this year 80% of the population will be able to connect to the national broadband network.
Morrow said: “I believe that as the company prepares to confront the new challenges ahead, this is the right time to hand over the reins for the next phase of this incredible project and for me to plan for the next step in my career.”
NBN chairman Dr Ziggy Switkowski said: “The country has been fortunate to have Bill lead this extraordinary project. While we will be sorry to see him leave, Bill has built a resilient, performance-driven organisation which will build on his legacy.”
