Experience summary


Ed’s experience crosses between technical leadership and business consulting, with a focus on core Australian Federal Government departments including Defence, DFAT, and Health, as well as technical operations management within ASX listed companies. He has technical postgraduate qualifications focusing on complex adaptive systems-of-systems, and is backing this up with an Executive MBA.

Career highlights

  • Technical merger of $300m BU Acquisition - As the Director of a BU’s IT, I successfully led a  program of four interlinked simultaneous technical projects to migrate an independent Azure tenancy of 600 users into the  parent company’s architecture with zero downtime in a politically complex environment.
  • Defence – Air Force Military Platform Integration - As Director of a contractor workforce across Air Force’s largest contract, Ed had complex blended contracts with around 50 people across three tranches of technical work.
  • QLD Health - Ed managed a team of technical specialists to deliver the System Recovery Plans for the top 50 critical systems across the Health ecosystem in Queensland. These plans were aligned to  Federal Health and Emergency management requirements, taking best practice from Australian emergency services and crisis management regulatory bodies.

More about me

Outside of work, Ed absolutely adores his little new born son, taking the small family exploring the outdoors and travelling the world. Ed is also looking forward to introducing his son to Surf Life Saving, where Ed has spent much of his volunteering career.
