Jane Hemstritch resigns from Telstra Board

Telstra today announced the resignation of director Jane Hemstritch from the Telstra Board, effective immediately.

Ms Hemstritch was appointed to the board in August 2016 and elected at the Annual General Meeting in October 2016. She was a member of the Remuneration Committee and the Nomination Committee.

Telstra Chairman John Mullen said Ms Hemstritch was leaving to further develop her philanthropic interests, particularly in the area of medical research.

“I thank her for her contribution to the board and wish her all the best in these endeavours,” Mr Mullen said.

An announcement about the appointment of a new non-executive director will be made in due course.
