The board of the Australian Communications Consumer Action Network (ACCAN) announced that ACCAN’s CEO of 11 years, Teresa Corbin, will be leaving at the end of October 2021 to take up an exciting new career opportunity.

ACCAN chairperson Deirdre O’Donnell said, “Teresa’s time as leader of ACCAN has been of enormous importance to our organisation in broadening its impact and its influence - always in the best interests of all consumers - on the Australian telecommunications industry. We know her legacy is a significant one, and we look forward to celebrating her many achievements at an appropriate time later this year.”

Ms O’Donnell added, “The board is confident that ACCAN as an organisation is in a wonderful position thanks to Teresa’s leadership. The ACCAN board will initiate recruitment for our next CEO in the months ahead. We are very pleased that from November Andrew Williams, ACCAN’s Deputy CEO will step up as acting CEO.

“There is no doubt Teresa has left her mark on the consumer movement as she has mentored the next generation of advocates, leaving ACCAN well placed to represent consumers well into the future. Teresa has also mentored and developed a number of young people who have gone on to fulfil other important advocacy roles across the Australian community sector.

“For now, however, we wish to focus on and express our gratitude for Teresa's outstanding leadership in pursuing the rights of all consumers to get equal access to communications services across Australia.”

Ms Corbin said, “It has been a privilege to lead an organisation with such a talented team and passionate members. I look forward to ACCAN’s future successes as they continue their important work in representing communications consumers across Australia.”
