City of Parramatta
Mark has been helping organisations solve business problems through leveraging technology for over 30 years. His experience covers most industries and the majority of countries within the Asia Pacific region along with the USA, Canada and UK. Mark decided to exit the IT Services Corporate world and take a year to study and travel in Europe, returning late 2017 when the opportunity arose to join the City of Parramatta in a caretaker position while a restructure was in progress. The diversity of the Council, offering exposure to major developments, theatre, libraries, childcare centres and traditional IT, presented a unique opportunity and Mark applied for the permanent role leading IT when it became available. He was successful in that application and is now developing and executing the IT strategy for Australia’s next great city. Mark has almost completed his studies, an MBA specialising in technology – scheduled to complete this Friday ( August 24).

Do mergers make for better councils? The evidence is against ‘bigger is better’ for local governmentDate: 4 May 2016 By: Brian Dollery
