Bill Morrow, chief executive of nbn, the company engaged in deploying a national broadband network across Australia, has announced a number of changes, effective July 1st, to the company's executive committee as it transitions from building to operating its nbn infrastructure.

1.         John Simon as chief customer officer - business, to lead business sales and marketing until his retirement in 2018.
