Aris, who joined TasmaNet in April, is a senior business executive and non-executive director with experience in the US (New York), Asia-Pacific (Shanghai) and Australia in global Fortune 500 companies in telecommunication, technology and retail banking.
Aris previously worked with Telstra, Alcatel-Lucent (now Nokia), and Westpac and consulted to Microsoft and Sprint, and recently returned to Australia after five years in the US.
Harris, who has led TasmaNet for more than 10 years, will finish with TasmaNet on June 15, but continue as a consultant.
Aris is a non-executive director of Australian-listed Vivid Technology, and an advisory board member to Agility Executive Search based in New York.
“TasmaNet connected the first NBN Enterprise Ethernet service in Australia earlier this year after being among the first providers accredited to sell the new product, and has recently sold the largest deal to date to the Catholic Education Office in Tasmania,” said Aris.
“We have developed robust systems that allow us to deliver multiple upgraded connections quickly, and our direct relationship with NBN Co as a wholesale provider means we can manage complex projects with minimal service interruption to customers. Our customers enjoy Internet connections far better than the regular NBN product, for a similar price.
“TasmaNet is one of a very few NBN resellers accredited to provide the product, which is much less expensive than the alternative products customers would have bought in the past.”
