Mr Aue said that Ms Knill’s appointment came at a time when 2degrees’ consumer division was going from strength to strength:
“A growing number of kiwis are drawn to our products and the way 2degrees continues to fight for fair. We have more than 120,000 broadband customers and more than 400,000 consumer pay monthly mobile customers. We’re looking forward to having Holly maintain that growth while ensuring those who choose 2degrees have a reason to stay,” said Mr Aue.
Ms Knill said the opportunity to join the 2degrees team came at the perfect time:
