Commentary on our MD, Michael Hallowes:
"Acting Premier of Victoria, Peter Ryan commended the efforts of Victoria’s Emergency Services Commissioner, Michael Hallowes, who led the negotiations on behalf of the Victorian Government with all three major telecommunications carriers on behalf of all states and territories.
“The Emergency Services Commissioner has done an outstanding job working with Telstra, Vodafone and Optus to ensure all three major carriers provide this technology to Australia’s mobile phone users,” Ryan said.
“The degree of complexity in delivering technology cannot be underestimated, and we are very proud to see such a great outcome for the people of Victoria and Australia.”
