After 18 months on the job, multiple delayed launches and the eventual release of an incredibly terrible service, Igloo’s General Manager has deserted the icy venture. Chaz Savage heads to Australia to take on the role of General Manager for T-Box, Telstra’s set-top box.
The unsurprising move is made interesting by the fact that his new boss is none other than former TVNZ CEO, Rick Ellis.
Ellis was responsible for the $15m failed investment of TVNZ in TiVo and a further $12.25m in the (failing?) joint Igloo project with Sky.
Telstra shareholders beware.
