A statement from the association said the appointment of Lloyd, the chief strategy officer and corporate affairs director at the former Vodafone which is now part of a merged entity with TPG Telecom, had been confirmed on Monday.
AMTA chief executive Chris Althaus said: “Dan brings 20 years of telco experience including the last six years on the executive team at Vodafone (now TPG Telecom).
"This experience will be invaluable for AMTA as we work together to address the key challenges surrounding the evolution of a 4G/5G ecosystem and the increasingly critical role of mobile connectivity – particularly given the unprecedented implications of COVID-19.”
Michael Riches, chief executive of Axicom, who replaces Graeme Barclay.
Lloyd told the AMTA board that van Beelen has made a significant and sustained contribution to AMTA, the mobile sector and her employer.
“Jane’s enormous contribution has spanned well over two decades and has always reflected the key attributes we all aspire to – leadership, respect and the highest quality inputs on a vast array of regulatory and policy issues that crossed her path at both Telstra and AMTA," he said.
"We all offer our sincere thanks to Jane for her exceptional contribution and wish her the very best for the future.”
The board also recognised and thanked Barclay for his contribution.
