Ragnor: Personally I think he's done a pretty good job on:

- Improving Telecom's overall image (Telecom rage/hate was much higher under Gatting).
- UFB negotiations.
- Facing up to the public during the XT issues.

And so he should have for the money he was being paid!

Being paid 51 times more than the average Telecom worker, I'd love to hear from Neil.  I wonder if the guys designing, building and doing the face to face marketing of all the new networks, feel that they're only worth 1/51th of Paul?

Profit was actually up 1.6% if you take out the cost of the earthquake and preparing for chorus de-merger, and in the middle of the worst recession since the great depression.

Haters gonna hate!


I'm not a hater by any means. Those are good achievements but the only real measure of a CEO is to create shareholder value, anything else are nice to haves.

In Telecom's case, do you think that given the current market, just maintaining shareholder value is fairly important?

How many telcos have lost value in the last decade?

One could make the argument that when one of those other workers announces they are going to leave, the market doesn’t tend to wipe ~$300m off the market cap of Telecom within hours

Yes, I have to give you that point.  It says quite a bit doesn't it.

Wonder what would happen to the market value if he withdrew his resignation in the morning.

If there are exactly 51 of them then that'd be fair...

freitasm: My bet is Chris Quin, Gen-i CEO...




Probably right, he's always been too/very focused on mobile phones vs IT

I agree... when you've got Sharchies to do all the marketing for you!
...Alcatel to look after the whole network for you...
...some call center company in ... 

...err... you see where this is going ;)


Frankly if I was a shareholder I'd be more concerned about Stephen Joyce quitting...  then who would tell the board and CEO what they can and can't do?
