Mr. David Thodey
Perth-born former CEO of Telstra, and now Chair of the CSIRO, Mr. David Thodey, will address the Sharing the Employee-Ownership Future Employee Ownership Australia and New Zealand (EOA) 2016 Awards and Conference.
After taking the helm of Telstra after a relatively stormy period in the history of the company in 2009 he was able to successfully reinvigorate the organisation by the time of his departure in 2015.
Before joining Telstra, his 22-year career at IBM comprised a number of senior positions including CEO of IBM Australia/New Zealand. He has extensive experience in the digital business and data services industries. Additionally, he is currently Chair of Jobs for NSW, an independent authority created in August 2015 to help deliver the NSW Government’s target to create 150,000 jobs in four years.
David is an experienced board chairperson and director. In January 2013, David joined the Board of the GSM Association, the global body of carriers and related companies that supports the standardisation and deployment of mobile technology around the world. Former board memberships include co-chair of the Infrastructure and Investment Taskforce of the B20 leadership group, and Chair of IBM ANZ, TelstraClear, Information Technology (IT) Skills Hub, Industry Groups and Basketball Australia.
David is a highly innovative business leader; and, he is also a keen supporter of employee-ownership. He is also known as someone who speaks up about topical issues, including the level of executive remuneration in comparison to others in the Australian workforce.
David Thodey is a compelling and content-rich speaker with a wealth of business wisdom. He will be sure to inspire some creative and future-focussed discussion at the EOA conference.
