Another key Telecom executive is leaving in the wake of the XT debacle.
The telco announced today its head of retail operations, Paul Hamburger, is to leave the company at the end of his contract in July.
Hamburger joined the telco 18 months ago, and has regularly commuted between his home base in Florida and New Zealand.
Telecom chief executive retail Alan Gourdie said Hamburger's role covered the establishment of XT mobile services, but his responsibilities did not include the building or management of the XT network infrastructure.
“With the launch and consolidation of XT behind us, Paul has made the choice to move on from Telecom at the end of his current contract period," Gourdie said.
“Paul and his team were responsible for such XT innovations as One Rate plans; pre-paid mobile broadband bringing a vastly improved range of devices to customers; and an exciting refresh of Telecom’s retail scores across New Zealand."
The XT network has been plagued by network disruptions in recent months, affecting hundreds of thousands of its customers.
Hamburger's last day of work at Telecom will be July 8.
Hamburger is the second senior Telecom executive to leave in the wake of the XT problems. Group chief transformation officer Frank Mount resigned in February.
