Simon’s Bio

Simon has made a career from changing the perception of technology. Gone are the days where technology is focused on infrastructure and operational support. Instead, technology plays a critical role, facing right into a business’ front line, interacting with its customers and underpinning its growth. Which means that the job of today’s CIO is integral to success – and driving true digital transformation is critical to staying ahead.

Building a strong career foundation in digital before moving into executive leadership roles, Simon has been fortunate to have worked with some of the world’s leading financial services institutions including ANZ and Aviva. Operating successfully in a highly complex and regulated industry Simon brings expertise in governance, risk management and investment, balancing his ability to re-set organisational direction and strategy with the complex obligations of an executive and non-executive director. Since joining Sportsbet, he’s been able to fully blend his skill set across digital transformation, project management and people leadership, building a world-class software engineering capability that has ultimately facilitated exceptional top and bottom line growth for the organisation.
