Telstra's former consumer and small business boss Vicki Brady has returned to the company to fill in the newly vacant role of chief financial officer and head of strategy.
Brady took time away from the telco late last year for health reasons, and will take on a larger role upon her return on 1 July.
Current CFO and head of strategy Robyn Denholm announced in November she would leave Telstra to replace Elon Musk as chair of Tesla Motors.
Brady joined Telstra in 2016 and moved up to group executive, consumer and small business in September 2017, where she worked to develop the new go-to-market plans as part of Telstra's T22 strategy, which aims to replace all 1800 different mobile plans with just 20 core plans.
"I am very pleased to have Vicki in the CFO role. She is an experience executive leader, with strong achievements in telecommunications, alongside a sound financial background," Telstra chief executive Andy Penn said.
Current acting consumer and small business leader Michael Ackland will replace Brady in a permanent capacity.
"Michael has contributed significantly to the team, driving the T22 changes for our customers that we announced last year. He has significant experience delivering the right outcomes for customers, alongside strong results for Telstra."
Telstra has been busy on the small business front in recent months. In December, the telco revamped its small business offerings with a handful of products like 24/7 IT support services, mobile plans and a new premium ICT channel.
