The appointment is an internal one, with Nazir’s LinkedIn profile showing he previously stood as the firm’s Principal Enterprise Architect of Strategy & Innovation, having been promoted to Customer CTO this month.

“Fawad will be responsible for working with senior CBA stakeholders across the bank’s business units to identify business challenges and deliver tailored technology solutions to solve these issues,” a Telstra spokesperson said, speaking to iTnews.
