Japanese telco NTT Ltd has renamed its Go-To-Market Officer and Chief Marketing Officer Australia Tania Balcombe as its new Chief Executive Officer across Australia and New Zealand region. The leadership move comes after The Nippon Telegraph and Telephone Corporation (NTT) brings the operations of its Australian and New Zealand arms to create a single entity, the ‘A/NZ’ region, which will together operate in the broader APAC region.

Balcombe’s appointment as the CEO of NTT A/NZ region will be effective from October 2020. She will replace NTT Australia CEO Steve Nola, who the telco revealed will retire by September end.

About telco NTT A/NZ’s CEO – Tania Balcombe 

Tania Balcombe has worked at NTT for 14 years. Most recently, she was both the company’s Chief Marketing Executive and Go-To-Market Officer for NTT Ltd. Australia. Prior to this role, she was the General Manager for NTT’s Australian arm. She contributed to transforming and strengthening NTT’s relationships with several clients while creating and delivering on an efficient new business plan for Victoria.

Jason Goodall, NTT Global CEO said he is delighted to appoint Balcombe for this position who is a world-class leader and a great advocate for their partners, clients and people. Goodall also took the opportunity to thank Steve Nola once again for his extraordinary contributions to their business over the past 31 years and wished him and his family a well-deserved retirement.

About NTT A/NZ operations

Effective from October 1st 2020, the newly-extended region will hopefully create the strongest technology services firm across Australia and New Zealand. Merging of the operations will also help NTT serve its clients in what it says is the most profitable and fastest-growing market in the world.

Goodall said that as part of their continual focus to transform their business, they’ve been reviewing how they can be faster to market, better serve their clients, align to the industry priorities and increase career opportunities.

The creation of NTT A/NZ will also hopefully make telco NTT a “stronger partner” for its more than 1400 clients across the Asia Pacific region. It will additionally make it convenient and easier for strategic partners to work with the company.
