Telstra's Group MD of Networks, Mike Wright, stepping down end September

By

The man with the Wright stuff at Telstra since 1980, who worked his way up the ranks to manage what is soon to become Telstra's 5G network, is set to step down.

Telstra has announced that Group managing director Networks, Mike Wright, is to step down at the end of September.

Chief operations officer Robyn Denholm thanked Wright for his nearly four decades of service and his leadership in building Telstra’s world class networks.

“Mike is one of the most widely respected network engineering leaders in the world. He has made a huge contribution over many years and he will leave an impressive legacy in Telstra’s world class wireless and fixed networks, which keep millions of Australian consumers and businesses connected every day.

“Under Mike’s guidance, Telstra has been a leader in deploying new network technologies. By the end of September when Mike will be stepping down for a well earned break, we will be nearing completion of the key elements of our Networks for the Future program and Telstra will be well on the way to deploying 5G," Denholm concluded.

Wright rightly wrote: “I joined Telstra as a graduate in 1980 and it has been my pleasure to work with a brilliant group of people over the years. I am very proud of everything we have achieved and I will be leaving Telstra in a few months knowing that the team is on the cusp of great success in bringing the next generation of networks to Telstra’s customers.

“The time is right for me to enjoy a break and then take a new direction in my career. I wish the company and its people every success.”
