Symbio appoints Michael Omeros as new CEO in growth strategy
Fri, 1st Mar 2024

Symbio Holdings Limited, prominent software company specialised in voice communications, has announced the appointment of Michael Omeros as its new Chief Executive Officer. This appointment is part of Symbio's strategy for continued growth and innovation within the telecommunications sector as it becomes part of the Aussie Broadband Group.

Omeros comes with an impressive track record, having amassed a wealth of experience in the industry that ideally positions him to guide Symbio through its next developmental phase. Having previously served as an Executive Director at the Aussie Broadband Group and with his substantial background in the voice industry, Omeros possesses the expertise needed to augment Symbio's impact on the telecommunications landscape.

Prior to joining Symbio, Omeros co-founded and managed Over the Wire Holdings Limited until its acquisition by the Aussie Broadband Group. His over twenty-year career in the telecommunications and IT services sectors has given him a profound understanding of wholesale voice operations and crafting growth-oriented strategic initiatives.

Speaking about the new appointment, Omeros says, "I am excited to join the Symbio family as CEO and lead this exceptional team into the next phase of our journey. Together, we will build upon the strong foundations we have and continue to innovate, grow, and exceed expectations, to solidify Symbio's position as a leader in the telecommunications industry."

Symbio's decision to appoint Omeros as CEO underscores its dedication to the realisation of its FY24 objectives and strategic vision, while also maintaining momentum in its growth trajectory in the APAC region. Even with these alterations, the company is intent on maintaining business as usual, prioritising the delivery of top-tier products and customer services.

The unification of Symbio with the Aussie Broadband Group marks an alliance of two prosperous Australian organisations set on altering the dynamics of the telco market. This association will result in a larger company boasting an expanded portfolio of solutions in data, voice, and messaging.

Rene Sugo, Symbio's co-founder and former CEO, will persist in an advisory capacity to aid the transition until June 2024. Moreover, Symbio's Executive team and staff will continue in their current roles, working towards changing the way the world communicates.
