Engin appoints new CEO from the UK

Begins November, 2007

ASX-listed broadband provider, Engin Limited, yesterday announced a leadership change following its transformation to a triple play business.

Following the recent TiVo and Optus broadband announcements, Engin will combine its ADSL2+ broadband and TiVo DVR offering.

The new CEO is Max Alexander who is relocating from the UK and will assume his position in November 2007.

He is the former MD of Carphone Warehouse's Communication Division.

Alexander will replace Ilkka Tales, the founding CEO of Engin Ltd.

Will Jephcott, Engin chairman, said Alexander is ideally placed to take Engin forward in its next stage of development.

"With a special focus on marketing, he brings to Engin significant experience in building the fastest growing telecoms business in the UK coupled with media and Internet experience at Sky," he said.

"His experience at growing companies and his demonstrated operational capabilities provide the skills we need to take the company forward during what is expected to be a high growth phase".

As of June 6, there were 75,000 subscriber services at Engin.

Engin is the primary distributor of TiVo which is expected to launch in Australia in early 2008.

Engin is headquartered in Sydney, Australia and was granted its telecommunications carrier license in March 2004.
