Ten Network director Siobhan McKenna has been appointed as the new chairperson of the National Broadband Network (NBN).
McKenna, who is also a director at DMG Radio and managing partner of Illyria, Lachlan Murdoch's investment company, will replace outgoing chair Harrison Young.
Young has decided not to stand for reappointment after his three-year term expired earlier this month.
McKenna has sat on NBN’s board for three years and took her position as the new chair at a meeting yesterday afternoon.
She joined the board of Ten Network in June last year and is a former director of Prime Media Group.
