Telstra networks leader steps down after 38 years

Mike Wright has announced plans to vacate his role as group managing director of networks at Telstra, exiting the business after 38 years.

The industry veteran will leave his post at the end of September, having joined the telecommunications giant as a graduate in 1980.

In leading Telstra’s networking engineering division, Wright was responsible for all aspects of fixed, wireless and media networks covering network planning, investment planning, design and construction.

“Mike is one of the most widely respected network engineering leaders in the world,” said Robyn Denholm, COO of Telstra.

“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.”
