Macquarie Government has hired former Brennan IT general manager Dayle Wilson as head of product and operations.
Wilson has returned to MacGov after just over two years with Brennan, prior to which he was with MacGov for more than 10 years in roles including engineering team leader, presales consultant, principal consultant and chief operating officer, the last role he had before switching to Brennan.
“This is an exciting time in Macquarie Government, with the ongoing investment in building cloud and information security services and products to precisely meet the needs of government agencies now and into the future,” Wilson said of his return to the company.
“Macquarie Government has a unique position. On the one hand, it can leverage the Macquarie Telecom Group’s 27 years’ heritage as a proudly Australian challenger communications business with a laser focus on customer service and commitment to bringing to market pioneering technology.
“But Macquarie Government itself is solely devoted to understanding and meeting the needs of government agency customers, supported by a team of more than 100 government security certified engineers, all based in Australia.”
Macquarie Government last week renewed its contract with the Australian Federal Court to provide secure internet gateway, a service it is authorised to provide by virtue of its certification by the Australian Signals Directorate to provide cloud services to government agencies for up to protected-level data.
“Macquarie Government’s recent strong growth shows it is well placed to respond to these priorities from Federal and state governments,” Wilson said.
“I’m excited to have the opportunity to come back to Macquarie to be a part of building what I believe is a business for the future.
