Telco Spark appoints new CEO as Moutter quits

Jolie Hodson has been appointed the new chief executive officer of New Zealand telco Spark after the resignation of current chief executive Simon Moutter.

Hodson has been at Spark since 2013, having worked in her current role as customer director since 2016. Her appointment will be effective from July 1.

Spark launched its new OTT platform Spark Sport in March after a major push for sports rights over the last 12 months.

It acquired rights to the 2019 Rugby World Cup last year and has since picked up rights to a host of sports properties, including EPCR Champions Cup, English Premier League, Uefa Champions League and NBA.
