Board of Directors


Senior Management Team

In 2015 we made some changes to our senior management team and corporate structure.

We appointed Warwick Bray to the role of Chief Financial Officer in May, following Andrew Penn’s appointment as CEO. Warwick's previous role was Group Managing Director, Products with responsibility for our mobile, fixed, NBN and WiFi products. He brings more than 25 years of global experience in finance, strategy, telecommunications and business development and a deep understanding of the worldwide telecommunications industry.

We also integrated our Business Support & Improvement (BS&I) business unit into other parts of the company.

BS&I, led by Robert Nason was created in 2010 to solve a number of specific cross-company issues Telstra was facing at the time. Since then, we have delivered productivity gains, our NPS score has improved significantly and we have established tools, processes and programs to help us simplify the business, which provided the opportunity to integrate the unit.

Earlier this year, Robert decided to retire after championing this productivity and customer advocacy agenda across Telstra. He will remain until October 2015 to help manage the transition of work into our other business units.

We made some changes to our International team to ensure we continue our focus on this strategically important part of our business and maintain our momentum. Tim Chen, President of Telstra International, will leave Telstra at the end of the calendar year however he will continue as the Chairman of Autohome. Tim has played a fundamental role for International as we have developed our relationships and capabilities in Asia. His contribution to navigating our growth paths in the region and in China position us well for the future success.

Cynthia Whelan will take on the role of Group Executive of Telstra International in an acting capacity.
