Noble, who will report to Macquarie Telecom hosting managing director, Aidan Tudehope, will see him take charge of the company's government-facing portfolio, including development of new security and hosting infrastructure and managed security services in Sydney and Canberra.
"Noble's deep experience in hosting and infrastructure design makes him an ideal choice to lead this highly valuable component of Macquarie Telecom's growth strategy," Tudehope said.
Noble, who has 30 years' experience in the telco industry, joined Macquarie Telecom in 1998, and has taken on executive leadership roles in the company's voice, data, and international data divisions.
"In my time with Macquarie Telecom, I've been fortunate enough to work with some of the most proficient technical and leadership talent in the country, and I plan to take this experience further in how we offer government-ready data security at a world-class level," Noble said.
Before Macquarie Telecom, he worked with a number of industry leaders, including six years at AT&T Asia-Pacific.
