Tell us about yourself and your previous work experiences.

I am married to Nicole and we have 4 children—Tahlia, Oliver, Carl and Isobel. My greatest achievement!

I have had a proud and blessed career with nearly 30 years of experience in Senior Leadership, Business Development, Sales and Marketing positions in well-respected organisations including Abbott, Alere, GSK, and MSD, as well as a Hollywood IVF and Epichem.

I enjoy leading and coaching people to drive commercial success and revenue growth. I am excited to lead teams of highly dedicated professionals focussed on achieving client-centric outcomes and sharing in their success as they continue to grow personally and professionally to map out their careers.

What attracted you to be part of #TeamDUG?

I was attracted by DUG’s vision and the opportunity to work with very intelligent, highly qualified subject-matter experts to provide tailored solutions to customers in the growing HPC space.

It’s a very exciting time to be at DUG. The ongoing research and development of our offerings is something I am very proud to be associated with. I’m also very keen to share my experience in Business Development, Sales and Marketing to drive performance and develop people.

For me, DUG is an excellent example of a single-minded focus on high-performance computing (HPC), all the way from software to services to data centre. DUG is HPC.

What is your vision for the future of DUG and how do you plan to shape it?

We will strive to increase our footprint, expand our product and service offerings to more customers in new market and client segments, and continue to be at the forefront of technology and HPC as a service (HPCaaS).

We will work in partnership and collaboration with our stakeholders to provide solutions to make a difference, and be the difference. Our compute is your success!

Tell us an interesting fact about yourself that most people don’t know.

I have a passion for cars, an interest in watches and an appreciation for shoes.

What’s the best advice you’ve been given?

Life and business always provide opportunities and challenges. Focus on what you can control. Listen to understand rather than to respond.
