I report to the IBM Managing Director (CEO) within Australia and New Zealand, providing strategic advice to executive clients across the multi-billion dollar local IBM business. I develop and execute go-to-market strategies, provide executive advocacy for key clients, present at industry conferences, publish and engage the media. I lead a client strategy that focuses on risk, threat management, and digital trust. I am a cloud security expert and excited about the opportunities hybrid-multi cloud will deliver in transforming the security market itself.
I have fulfilled roles that have invented, designed, developed, led technical sales, supported, serviced and managed global enterprise software solutions across IBM. This experience helps me engage on transformational thought leadership topics with clients, particularly in this cloud era. Having held global and Asia Pacific roles, I have worked onsite with innovative clients in countries across Asia, United States, Europe and Africa. There are currently 28 cybersecurity patents issued by the United States Patent Office in my name. I have a proven track record of bringing IBM R&D from our A/NZ and global lab to key clients, putting Australia on the map for cyber security innovation. I’m proud of being an IBM Mater Inventor, recognised within the global IBM Security leadership of bringing client perspective to product innovation.
As a certified culture coach, I’m passionate about driving a positive growth mindset and constructive engagement style across #anewibm. I am the culture coach for the IBM Cloud brand as well as a number of individuals within the IBM A/NZ extended leadership team.
