Ray Pow – Retires From Telstra 1 July 2019

It must be getting contagious! On the back of the advice that Doc Roberts is retiring, Ray Pow has announced that he too has decided to stop to smell the daisies!

Ray’s last day at Telstra will be 1 July 2019 after 48 years with OTC/TELECOM/TELSTRA/REACH/TELSTRA.

Ray has been looking forward to retirement for a few years now so the offer of redundancy from Telstra has made it a very sweet and easy decision.

I asked Ray what he would be doing with all of his spare time and he responded that “the jobs to be done just keep piling up”.

Ray and his wife are expecting their first grandchild in a few months in London so a few more trips to the UK will be on the agenda. He also plans to continue with his passion for restoring old cars. He has a 1934 Buick on the go at the moment. He wants to build a new bigger garage to house his cars and help with plenty of other long deferred projects around home.

We wish Ray and his family well in his retirement

    Congrats and all the best for the future and grand parenthood.

    48 years , what a milestone. Far from the days working a Broadway exchange.
