Telstra has appointed high-flier Luigi Sorbello as TelstraClear's chief of service operations. Despite his new position, Sorbello will continue to be based in Melbourne.
Sorbello has worked for the past three and a half years as Telstra's "key relationship manager" between New Zealand and Australian operations.
Sorbello's role will see him take responsibility for the company's recently-acquired systems integrator, Sytec, and the company's existing internal IT business unit, ICT Solutions.
However, Sorbello will also assist newly-appointed CEO Allan Freeth in the day-to-day running of the company, although his role won't be that of chief operations officer.
Although Sorbello will remain in Melbourne and Freeth has chosen to base himself in Wellington, both men will spend a percentage of their time in the company's Auckland head office.
