Program Manager

With CBA going through one of the biggest Hybrid Cloud transformation amongst the big 4 banks, this engagement was initially managing the selection and delivery of a new Private Cloud capability from RFP through to operational readiness. With the Private Cloud capability delivered in September 2017 I was then requested to pivot onto the Public Cloud program and deliver a dual AWS and Azure public Cloud platform, read more here.

With Qantas undertaking an RFP for selection of a new Application Support partner, I was engaged to support the commercial team with Transition and Transformation (TnT) scoping and sizing as part of the commercial agreements being negotiated.
