Trisha McEwan To Leave Telecom NZ

Telecom New Zealand today announced the departure of group human resources director Trisha McEwan in December 2008 after six-and-a-half years at the company.

“I want to thank Trisha for the outstanding job she has done at our company through a period of tumultuous change,” said chief executive Paul Reynolds.

“As head of human resources for the Telecom group throughout this period, Trisha has managed the critically important task of maintaining Telecom’s people capacity at a time of uncertainty and change.

“Trisha decided in 2007 to move her career to the next phase and I was delighted she agreed to remain at Telecom so that she could see through a number of senior executive appointments and other initiatives.”

Trisha said she had enjoyed immensely her time at Telecom.

“It has been a great challenge and a privilege to work with some of New Zealand’s best leadership talent as well as the highest calibre international executives. Telecom has made a huge commitment to building leadership capability and I am proud to have been part of the HR function which drove those initiatives.”

Dr Reynolds said the strength of Telecom’s executive line-up was testament to Trisha’s insight and ability.

“The past year has been particularly challenging, as Telecom moved to finalise its Undertakings on operational separation, a strategy for the company’s transformation was put in place and a world-class executive team was established to implement the change.

“We wish Trisha the very best for the future,” Dr Reynolds said.

Trisha’s replacement will be announced in due course.
