NBN Co needs a boardroom blitz

Appointing Ziggy Switkowski as the chairman of NBN Co is a step in the right direction, but the company will need another injection of senior talent to ensure a smooth rollout of Turnbull's NBN.

If Malcolm Turnbull anoints former Telstra and Optus chief executive Ziggy Switkowski as chairman of NBN Co as expected, he will have addressed only one of the challenges confronting the national broadband rollout.

While there is already some push-back on the notion of Switkowski as NBN Co chairman from with the telco sector, he does tick some of the boxes.
