Roary Stasko, Telstra's Finance and Strategy Executive Director, has been announced as the new CEO of Telstra's International business, effective from 1 July. The announcement was made by Telstra Enterprise Group Executive David Burns, who expressed excitement over Stasko's appointment.
Burns commended Stasko's comprehensive understanding of international markets and his proven leadership within Telstra. "Roary is a proven leader within Telstra, having spent more than five years at the business in a variety of different roles including Head of Corporate Strategy as well as Head of Finance for Telstra’s Consumer and Small Business function," says Burns.
With Stasko's background in emerging markets, Burns believes he is the ideal choice to spearhead Telstra International, especially as the business continues on its growth path. Stasko will take over from the current Head of Telstra International, Oliver Camplin-Warner, who is set to head the Telstra Purple business in the coming financial year. The transition, according to Burns, is planned for 1 July to ensure a seamless handover.
Stasko, on his part, expressed enthusiasm about his new role and the prospect of working with the diverse portfolio of the International business. "Telstra International has a strong team culture, an incredible focus on its customers and a well-established position in the market. I’m excited to join the International team to build on all the hard work of Oliver and the team, and to lead the business in its next phase of growth," he affirms.
While taking on his new responsibilities, Stasko will retain his position on the Digicel Pacific Board. He will be based in San Francisco, CA.
