It hasn’t taken long. Within days of Telstra’s new CEO Sol Trujillo
starting his new gig, the rumours from within the telco are beginning
to whirr. Like this one:

Word is that Ted Pretty has resigned and is off to a US telco. In the
meantime his managers are trying to hide failed technology investments
running into tens of millions. They are extremely concerned that the
little Mexican will show them the door.

This may be the first Soliloquy of the Telstra Trujillo, but it certainly won’t be the last.
