Dr Phil Burgess resigns
Telstra's Dr Phil Burgess will leave his position as Telstra's public policy
chief at the end of August to return to the United States.
Telstra said this afternoon that Dr Burgess will return to his home in
Annapolis, Maryland, in early September to "support his wife, Mary Sue,
whose mother is seriously ill, and to resume his life as an advisor to
business and government on matters related to technology and society, a life
he put on hold to join Sol Trujillo and Telstra three years ago."
Dr Burgess has been Group Managing Director, Public Policy & Communications,
since July 2005.
CEO Sol Trujillo announced today that Burgess would be replaced by David
Quilty, the company's government relations director, who joined the company
in early 2006 after serving in various government advisory positions.
More details in CommsDay tomorrow.
