The Board expects that Mr Trujillo will drive cultural and organisational change throughout Telstra, enabling the corporation to further embrace a service driven, customer focused way of doing business.

Mr Trujillo has been appointed on an ongoing contract. He holds a Bachelor of Business and a MBA degree from the University of Wyoming.

Mr Trujillo will receive a fixed remuneration package of AU$3 million per annum.

These incentive components are referable to significant performance milestones.
