StarHub announced today that its CEO Peter Kaliaropoulos will retire and step down from his position as CEO with effect from 31 October 2020. Accordingly, a global search for a replacement will begin immediately.

In an investor and analyst call to discuss his resignation, Kaliaropoulos who joined StarHub as its CEO in 2018 said, “Unforeseen serious health related matters of a close family member have necessitated my urgent return to Sydney, to be closer to my family during this critical period. Following almost 40 years in the industry across multiple countries.”

The StarHub Board will establish an interim Board Executive Committee (Board ExCo) to provide close support to the management leadership team during the CEO search and oversee the smooth transition for the new CEO. Kaliaropoulos will serve as a co-opted member on the ExCo until the new CEO is hired.

Some of StarHub’s key highlights under Kaliaropoulos’s time as CEO, launched a digital transformation plan, won a joint 5G license bid with M1 and began its rollout, revamped StarHub TV and announced a bundle with Netflix, and moved from cable to fibre with mesh support.

StarHub Chairman, Terry Clontz stated:

“Among the many initiatives led by Peter, StarHub recently invested in Malaysia based Strateq (digital services), secured a 5G license via a partnership, delivered stellar Customer Satisfaction, and accelerated the IT and Digital transformation through a partnership with PCCW Solutions.”
