NBN Co Appoint Former APN Outdoor CFO
The NBN Co has appointed former APN Outdoor executive, Philip Knox, as its new Chief Financial Officer, following the promotion of Stephen Rue to Chief Executive in August 2018.
Effective February 6, Mr Knox’s appointment follows an “extensive global recruitment process” undertaken by an executive search firm.
NBN Co Chief Executive, Stephen Rue, asserts Knox will bring an outstanding track record of hands-on financial management, critical for the the final two years of the NBN rollout.
With over thirty years of experience in financial management, Knox was most recently the CFO at APN Outdoor, and prior to this the CFO at the Garvan Institute of Medical Research and Austar.
Mr Knox’s time at Austar claims to have fostered extensive experience in delivering telecommunications services across regional and remote Australia.
Knox is also a member of CPA Australia and a fellow of the Australian Institute of Company Directors.
