Life after Malone: Where to next for iiNet?

iiNet has lost its CEO Michael Malone and in a sector awash with disruption the telco's innovative streak might set it apart from the competition.

The darling of the Australian telco space iiNet has lost its founder and chief executive Michael Malone for good. The challenge of securing iiNet’s future in a sector awash with disruption could now potentially fall on new shoulders. And it’s a big one.

Malone took a sabbatical in November, in what now looks like a good way to test whether iiNet could cope with his absence, and evidently it's doing well enough for Malone to seek out greener pastures.
