Rod Deane to go as Telecom New Zealand chairman

, posted: 13-May-2006 11:31

InternetNZ's Colin Jackson says in his blog today that the print edition of the Dominion Post reports that Telecom chairman Rod Deane is stepping down and will "disengage from all his commercial governance activites".

The story is a reprinted Australian Financial Review one, and can be read on Stuff.

Mr Deane said last night that his decision to retire was unrelated to Telecom's failure to prepare for regulatory changes that triggered a 23 per cent collapse in its share price in the past two weeks.

If it is indeed unrelated, the timing for Deane's departure announcement is most inauspicious. Who will be asked to walk the plank next?
