Holmes to leave Gen-i after restructure

New Australia-NZ CEO role displaces veteran

Rhoda Holmes, formerly Gen-i’s Australian general manager of Australasian key clients, has resigned following recent restructuring which saw Chris Quin promoted to Australia-New Zealand CEO.

Last month, Quin was appointed to the trans-Tasman role, after several years as Gen-i’s New Zealand managing director.

Holmes leaves Gen-i at the end of July.

In a statement, Telecom CEO Paul Reynolds says “Rhoda has made an invaluable contribution to our Australian and key trans-Tasman clients.

“She has built a strong team at Gen-i Australia and developed our strategy for growth in the Australian ICT market.”

Until Quin’s promotion to the CEO role, he reported to Simon Moutter, who was chief operating officer of Gen-i. Moutter moved into the position of chief transformation officer at Telecom last month. He resigned on May 14 to take up the role of CEO of Auckland airport.

Gen-i communications and media manager Carmela Salisbury says the establishment of an overall CEO role at Gen-i reflects the importance of Gen-i to Telecom.

Holmes has headed Gen-i Australia since 2005. Before that she held roles at AAPT and Telecom.
