Former NSW premier Gladys Berejiklian appointed Optus exec

Optus has created a new role of managing director - Enterprise, Business and Institutional for former NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian.

Berejiklian was Premier of NSW from January 2017 until she announced her departure from politics in October 2021 after Independent Commission Against Corruption (ICAC) said it was investigating the premier for a breach of public trust.

According to the telco giant this role will lift focus on unlocking a greater share of the multi-billion-dollar enterprise, business, and institutional markets.

Kelly Bayer Rosmarin, CEO at Optus said the company has set vision to become Australia’s most loved everyday brand.

“To deliver on our vision we need to think and do things differently and we need to attract amazing people who bring diverse experiences and new ways of thinking to our industry. So, I am thrilled to announce that Gladys Berejiklian will join our talented and experienced executive team to help transform our approach to business customers,” she said.

“Gladys is a proven leader who demonstrated her renowned strength, leadership, discipline, and composure in successfully guiding Australia’s largest state through one of the biggest challenges in its history while earning the support and gratitude of the community for her tireless contribution.  She also builds and fosters loyal and dedicated teams who really go above and beyond for her.”

Rosmarin said Berejiklian will be a “game-changer” for Optus.

She said, “In bringing our business-focused teams together under this newly created role I truly believe that our collective energies can deliver superior customer outcomes in market segments that continue to be dominated by the incumbent.”

Berejiklian said, “I am excited and proud to join an organisation that impacts the lives of millions of Australians every day and prides itself in providing outstanding customer service. I look forward to working with Kelly and the Executive Team of Optus who are providing inspiring and innovative leadership in the telco sector.”

Berejiklian will join Optus on 28 February 2022.
