this will have zero effect on average kiwi if Telecom finds a capable replacement.... (In my not so humble opinion of course...)

odd timing for an unrelated-to-regulation step down though... (or a good time to do something you have wanted to do for a long time)

Oh for God's sake, people like you really should close yourselves off from public interaction. Is there anything even remotely intelligent about that comment?

Did you even bother to read the article? They are not getting rid of him. He is planning to step down.

First, as pointed out, he's retiring on his own accord. Second, your comment about having a woman running the company shows a lot of prejudice.
