Anthony replaces Fiona Beck, who has been CEO since 2001, who is stepping down to pursue roles as an independent director.

“The Board would like to record their appreciation of the success that has been achieved under Fiona’s strong leadership said Mr. Clarke.”

“I am very proud of what Southern Cross has achieved over the 13 years I have been CEO; and with the company in excellent shape I decided it was the right time to hand over to the next person” said CEO Fiona Beck

“Southern Cross, which operates the 28,500kms undersea cable linking New Zealand, Australia and the Pacific with the United States, is looking forward to building on its past success and continuing to focus on future growth” said Mr. Clarke.
“Southern Cross is the only single provider of highly reliable, diverse capacity connectivity from the United States to Australia, Fiji and New Zealand” he said.

“Our development of new technology enhancements will ensure the massive increase in customer demand, driven by Australia’s NBN and New Zealand’s UFB initiatives will be managed with ease and lower prices” he said.

The company is pleased to welcome Anthony Briscoe as incoming CEO. Anthony has had a long and successful career with Telecom NZ and a long association with Southern Cross from its inception and has previously served as Telecom NZ’s Director and Chairman on the Board of Southern Cross.

“I am delighted to be taking over the reins of Southern Cross and look forward to continuing the excellent progress and development Southern Cross has achieved, incoming CEO Anthony Briscoe said.”
