TECHNICAL ADVISOR: Brian Louey-Gung

brian-louey-gungMr. Louey-Gung has substantial experience in the telecommunications industry having fulfilled significant roles for both industry and government. These roles have addressed a wide range of commercial and regulatory challenges ranging from the establishment of day-to-day commercial operations to the high-level analysis of the effectiveness of legislation in the face of technology convergence.


Mr. Louey-Gung's understanding of government is based on four years at the Australian Communications and Media Authority, while his involvement with commercial entities, including Telstra, Link Communications and Iridium South Pacific, dates back to 1980. He has a broad, inclusive perspective on the practicalities of the telecommunications industry, having worked for large corporates, small enterprises, start-ups and government, as well as having negotiated international commercial and inter-government agreements.


Mr. Louey-Gung was instrumental in Telstra’s transition from a government-owned monopoly to an effective competitor in a liberalised environment – a period of substantial legislative reform during the early 1990s. He led many negotiations with the new competitors and with the then-regulator AUSTEL.
