Roary Stasko named CEO of Telstra International

Stasko will remain on the board of Digicel Pacific and will be based in San Francisco, CA.

Telstra has named its finance and strategy executive director, Roary Stasko, the new CEO of Telstra International, starting July 1, 2023. Stasko will replace Oliver Camplin-Warner, who will transition to head of the Telstra Purple business in the new financial year.

Stasko will remain on the board of Digicel Pacific and will be based in San Francisco, CA. Telstra bought Digicel Pacific last year (see "Digicel Pacific sale to Telstra completes").

“Roary is a proven leader within Telstra, having spent more than five years at the business in a variety of different roles including Head of Corporate Strategy as well as Head of Finance for Telstra’s Consumer and Small Business function,” said Telstra Enterprise Group Executive David Burns, who made the appointment. “He is the right person to lead Telstra International as the business continues its exciting growth trajectory.”

Stasko’s background in emerging markets should prove useful in his new role as well, Burns added.

“Telstra International has a strong team culture, an incredible focus on its customers and a well-established position in the market. I’m excited to join the International team to build on all the hard work of Oliver and the team, and to lead the business in its next phase of growth,” Stasko stated.
