Telecommunications industry veteran Mark Ratcliffe, formerly the chief executive of telco networker Chorus, has joined the board of 2 Degrees.

Ratcliffe has been appointed by Tesbrit B.V. which holds a 27 per cent interest in 2 Degrees.

Tesbrit B.V. director Peter Schmid said Ratcliffe will bring a wealth of fixed line and local industry expertise to the board, complementing the broad international mobile and business experience of current directors.

“2 Degrees has fantastic mobile and fixed networks,” Schmid said. "Mark’s extensive leadership experience in a full-service telecommunications operator, and more recently in driving broadband uptake via new fibre networks, will be of great value as 2 Degrees continues to grow."

Ratcliffe is also a director of Housing New Zealand, First Gas and has held governance roles with the New Zealand Initiative think-tank, and industry body the Telecommunications Carriers Forum.

Schmid also acknowledged the value of Mike Ah Koy’s contribution. Ah Koy, who had been a 2 Degrees board member since 2015, died in June.

Ratcliffe was replaced as CEO of Chorus in February by former Telstra chief operating officer Kate McKenzie.
