Optus Inc is a telecommunication company which provides communications products including mobile, telephony, broadband, satellite and subscription TV.
A global IT leader, with over seventeen years of experience in Telecommunications, Digital Media and Finance industries. In addition to experience in global organisations, I have a successful record of building high-performing teams and leading a variety of IT teams in Australia, Singapore and India. I have a strong reputation for leadership and delivering exceptional results. Delivering business value through leveraging the scale of large enterprise whilst maintaining agility of a start-up is my passion. I have experience in setting up large scale multi-geographic IT Project Management Office (PMO) capable of delivering 70+ projects worth A$100M per annum. I have managed multi-geographic teams spread across Sydney and Singapore. I believe it is important for a Project Management Office to provide balance between governance, process and flexibility. For projects to deliver maximum business benefit it is important the right project delivery methodology is used. At Optus, I have successfully established dedicated Agile delivery practices capable of delivering complex projects. Generally, large enterprises have processes and constraints that are not condusive for the establishment of a Agile practice. To succeed, best practices have to be tailored to organisational circumstances. I have extensive experience managing Portal and Integration projects. To deliver optimum value from an online channel to the business, it is also important to reduce time to market and provide maximum flexibility. Use of Agile delivery methodology is a key to this. I have extensive experience delivering successful portals and online shop projects. I am delivery driven and believe in building relationships with the aim to deliver quality results for the organisation. I have a strong technical background and business acumen which allows me to dive into technical details while keeping the bigger picture.
