Prior to joining Nokia, Mr McBeath worked for Cadbury NZ, Chevron Texaco UK and Coca Cola Amatil. He has an MBA from the Helsinki School of Economics and a Bachelor of Commerce from the University of Auckland.

Telecom’s CEO Retail, Chris Quin, says he is delighted to have Grant on board.

“Grant has significant accomplishments including leading and developing exceptional teams combined with a solid track record of delivering strong revenue growth in the markets he has operated in. We’re excited to have him on board leading our retail sales team including our Telecom Retail Stores and Business Hubs across New Zealand.”

Additionally, Kellie Nathan has been appointed to the position of General Manager Brand, Communications and Digital.

Kellie returns to Telecom having first worked for the company in 2005 as Head of Communications and Brand.
