Vodafone Hutchison Australia chief financial officer James Marsh is leaving the telco in late July to take up a role in the media industry.  

Marsh joined the VHA team as CFO in 2013, as the company started what it says was one of the most successful turnarounds in Australian corporate history. He was previously CFO at Vodafone New Zealand from 2006 and has worked for the Vodafone Group since February 2000.

Vodafone chief executive Iñaki Berroeta thanked Marsh for his significant contribution to the business.

“James has been a key member of my leadership team, and has helped us achieve the right balance between financial growth and delivering true value to Australian consumers,” Berroeta said.

“He has contributed to major strategic moves, including our market-challenging products such as $5 Roaming, our worry-free plans and the launch of Vodafone NBN.

“James leaves a strong finance team at VHA as his legacy. I wish him all the best for the future.” 

Berroeta said over recent years, VHA had achieved solid and consistent financial growth, while becoming a strong challenger in the market with innovative, competitive products.

Marsh said, “I’m incredibly proud of everything Vodafone has achieved over recent years, and I am confident the company will continue to go from strength to strength.”

Active Vs. Passive DWDM Solutions

An active approach to your growing optical transport network & connectivity needs.

This has led many enterprises to build passive networks, which are inferior in quality and ultimately limit their future growth.

Why are passive solutions considered inferior? And what makes active solutions great?

Read more about these two solutions, and how PacketLight fits into all this.
