    Phillip Britt

    Co-founder and Managing Director
    Aussie Broadband Group

    Phillip is a thought leader who has spent nearly three decades in the telco industry. Starting his first ISP at 18, Phil went on to found Wideband Networks in 2003 with his business partner John Reisinger. He saw a growing need to extend broadband access into regional and rural areas of Australia. As a result, Wideband Networks merged with Westvic Broadband in 2008 to create Aussie Broadband. During this time, he was appointed Managing Director of Aussie Broadband.

    Phillip has taken the company from a small, regionally focussed business to an Australia-wide quality internet service provider, with an outstanding reputation for stable internet and award-winning customer service.

    He is acknowledged as an excellent communicator and inspirational leader who thrives on large challenges. He leads through straight-talking, his ability to engage with people at all levels, and his core belief in making communities better.

    Phillip is a graduate of the JMW Leader of the Future program and is also heavily involved in the not-for-profit sector, particularly with Scouts Victoria.
