Telecom New Zealand appoints Kieren Cooney as Director of Mobile
Posted on 14-Apr-2010 16:42. | Tags Filed under: News.

Mr Cooney is currently CEO of Leading Edge NZ Ltd, Telecom’s retail dealer partner which runs a network of 60 Telecom branded outlets.

Prior to his four years at Leading Edge, Mr Cooney held key senior roles at Vodafone including General Manager New Markets and General Manager Media & Content. During this time he led the launch of the company’s 3G service and the development and growth of its content portal.

He has also held leadership roles at New Zealand technology companies such as Touchpoint, eVentures and Tacit Group.

Alan Gourdie, Telecom Retail CEO says Kieren was a standout for the role given his close workings with Telecom’s mobile operations over recent years and his impressive local market experience.

“Kieren has been working alongside our mobile and retail teams for some time and has in-depth understanding of the customer experience, sales and service models we work towards.

“His knowledge of the New Zealand mobile market and understanding of the competitive landscape make Kieren an excellent addition to the retail organisation.”

Mr Cooney’s responsibility will be the commercial operations of Telecom’s mobile business such as product management, plans, handsets, and roaming as well as supply chain, retail promotions and sales. The role doesn’t include the management of network infrastructure.

Kieren starts in the role in June ensuring a transition period with current Director of Mobile Paul Hamburger whose contract ends in July.
