NBN Co chief executive Bill Morrow said: "NBN Co has benefitted greatly from Karina’s leadership over the past four years. She has built a high-calibre team and has worked hard to inform the conversation internally and across the media, government and industry.

"She has introduced new platforms across social media, employee communications and media engagement, including NBN Co’s regional interface, NBN Local. Karina has been a passionate advocate for diversity and has been an active spokesperson for NBN Co.

“Felicity will lead the team on its next phase and will continue to report on our progress, clarify the facts, and help manage the reputation of the company.

"She brings significant experience in leadership roles with high-profile brands and challenging environments."
