Company Release - 1/15/2019 8:15 PM ET

BELLEVUE, Wash., Jan. 15, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Trilogy International Partners Inc. (the “Company”) (TSX: TRL) today announced that the board of its New Zealand subsidiary, 2degrees, has appointed Mark Aue as the company’s new Chief Executive.

Mark joined 2degrees in July 2018 as its Chief Financial Officer. As part of an orderly transition plan, once 2degrees appoints a new CFO to take his place, he will begin his new role as CEO and current CEO Stewart Sherriff will commence his retirement.

2degrees Chairman Brad Horwitz says the appointment followed an international search that attracted a high caliber of applicants.

“Mark has impressed the Board with his financial management, active leadership and understanding of our business today and the opportunities ahead. Coupled with his extensive local and global industry experience, we are delighted to make an appointment that will ensure stability and continued growth at 2degrees,” says Mr. Horwitz.

“When Stewart announced his retirement in August last year we set the bar high for his replacement. Among a very strong field of applicants, Mark stood out as a leader with a clear vision for the future of 2degrees.”

Mark has gained significant industry experience through financial, commercial and operational leadership roles over the course of his career. He has served as CFO of Vodafone New Zealand, CFO of Vodafone’s Global Enterprise division in the UK, a Director of Vodafone Fiji, in addition to other business transformation and planning positions.

Mark says leading 2degrees is a unique opportunity, and something he had long aspired to do.

“Few companies have made as much impact on the everyday lives of kiwis as 2degrees. From a distance, I have watched the company grow from strength to strength, bringing significant benefits to the telecommunications market through its disruptive innovation and an unrelenting belief in ‘fighting for fair’ for all New Zealanders,” says Mark.

“Since joining the team I’ve been impressed by the passionate culture, the strength of our people and how dearly the brand is regarded by customers.  Stewart and the team have created a successful and very special organization, and as we approach our 10th birthday, I’m honored to take on the role of CEO and excited about what 2degrees is going to do next.”
