Former Premier of New South Wales, Gladys Berejiklian, will join telecommunications company Optus in the newly created role of ‘Managing Director, Enterprise, Business and Institutional’.
The CEO of Optus Kelly Bayer Rosmarin said, “to deliver on our vision we need to think and do things differently and we need to attract amazing people who bring diverse experiences and new ways of thinking to our industry. So, I am thrilled to announce that Gladys Berejiklian will join our talented and experienced executive team to help transform our approach to business customers.”
Berejiklian was Premier of NSW from January 2017 until she announced her departure from politics in October 2021. She served as Transport Minister in the O’Farrell Government and then Treasurer in the Baird Government, overseeing the State’s economic revival and the biggest infrastructure program in Australia’s history.
Before joining politics, Berejiklian held senior executive roles at the Commonwealth Bank.
