“I am very proud of what Southern Cross has achieved over the 13 years I have been CEO; and with the company in excellent shape I decided it was the right time to hand over to the next person” said CEO Fiona Beck

“Southern Cross, which operates the 28,500kms undersea cable linking New Zealand, Australia and the Pacific with the United States, is looking forward to building on its past success and continuing to focus on future growth” said Mr. Clarke.
“Southern Cross is the only single provider of highly reliable, diverse capacity connectivity from the United States to Australia, Fiji and New Zealand” he said.
