Just a quick post tonight because I’m so very happy to be able to say that we have filled the three key new management positions within Informatics that resulted from our recent 2010 restructure.
We were lucky enough to attract competitive applicants from a wide variety of backgrounds and of impressive calibre, and all three successful candidates were first choices of their selection panels.
Naturally confidentiality must be observed around the identities of these people while they wind up their current employment relationships, so here are some anonymised teasers:
Product Manager - start date 15 June
Bachelor IT (Business Systems)
Bachelor of Engineering in Computer Systems (incomplete)
Pragmatic Marketing certified
15 years of experience in telco, isp and software industries
including 5 years of experience in product marketing
Passionate about making a difference through great design
Development Manager - start date 28 June
Bachelor of Science (Computing Science)
Bachelor Optometry (First Class)
20 years experience in software, including ECM, CMS and opensource
including 10 years development management experience, including Agile and RUP
Passionate about mentoring young people and fresh tech
Information Director - start date 19 July
PHD Mathematical Modelling
Master Business Administration
15 years experience in business intelligence
including 6 years executive management experience
Passionate about linking structured and unstructured data and setting strategy agenda
I’m personally very energised and excited about complementing the already outstanding incumbent team with these first class managers who share a common theme: the desire to make a dent in the planet by helping Macquarie University transform Informatics, Memory and Analytics into standout differentiators.
This blog is about promoting discussion in areas of significance for Universities it is not necesarily the viewpoint of MQ and should not be taken as such.
