Irish Australian Business Awards Peoples Choice 2017

I arrived in Australia in 2002 with my degree from the University of Limerick in my back pocket and couple of years experience to-boot! Since then, I've spent the last 15 years building a career in a technology to a point where I am now a recognized technology leader in Australia, with a significant track record for delivering technology-enabled change that has contributed directly to commercial outcomes in both digital media and commercial property / realestate industries.

My last 6 years have been in Property and Real Estate, where I have lead the digital transformation at both Charter Hall Group (now) and previously at the Stockland Group.

As Chief Technology Office and Head of Business Transformation, I am a key member of the EXCO at Charter Hall providing leadership and direction for all strategic & operational technology activities. Charter Hall are a ~$20Bn+ commercial real estate business managing approx. 400 assets across Retail, Office, Industrial / Logistics and Hospitality sectors.

I am an active contributor to the health of technology innovation globally, representing Australia on the advisory board for the ‘Realcomm’ global real estate innovation think-tank, also I lead the Commercial stream of the Business Council of Australia ‘Innovation Nation’ initiative. I provide coaching an mentoring to a Sydney based Irish founder led start-up called NuaMedia, helping them to develop and execute strategy, business plans and create scale as a young Irish-Australian business.

Along the way I'm proud to have developed and mentored some wonderful people (both within Irish community and outside) and am currently an active mentor in the the ‘Women in Property’ PCA program as well as the IACC mentoring program. I'm also proud to have been able to contribute to the 'grass roots' Irish community here in Sydney through my coaching and mentoring role with NSW GAA.

I'm very proud to be an Irishman in corporate Australia and try to both represent and contribute to the Irish community at every available opportunity. For putting the Irish flag on the top of Australian tech thought leadership - I'm seeking your nomination!!
