Tuanz chief executive Brislen resigns
Telecommunications Users Association chief executive Paul Brislen will quit the association in June to set up a new public relations agency with PR professional and 2013 "Women of Influence" finalist Jane Sweeney.
Brislen had been at the helm of the lobby group, which is funded by large private and public sector telecommunications users, for three years.
Brislen said now was a good time to pass the baton on to a new chief executive "as we lead into the election cycle with all that entails".
Tuanz chairman Pat O'Connell said the association was sad to see Brislen depart and a search for his successor would begin immediately.
The association's future was in doubt in June last year when Brislen warned there was a "strong possibility" it might have to wind up because of a lack of funds. Some members were late paying their fees but subsequently coughed up.
Brislen said Tuanz had since turned a corner and renewals were ahead of where they were this time last year.
