Graeme Kernich, our new CEO

Hello and Happy Chinese New Year!

Welcome to the first CRCSI Update for 2018. It is hard to believe we are already two months into the year. Our team and projects have started with great enthusiasm and energy. As we head towards the windup of CRCSI in June and the transition and launch of our new entity I wanted to provide you with an update on changes to the roles and responsibilities within the CRCSI following my appointment as CEO.

Please welcome Melanie Plumb into her new role as Chief Operating Officer and Nathan Quadros to his, as Chief Commercial Officer of the CRCSI. Nathan also joins Melanie, Phil Collier and myself on the CRCSI Executive team. The CRCSI has a strong and supportive team, a strong group of projects and a long list of strong prospective opportunities before it in 2018.

It is a very exciting time for the spatial sector. The technological changes and disruption continue at a rapid pace. Location technologies and spatial information are influencing other industry sectors more than ever, and providing insights we couldn’t anticipate at the start of the CRCSI (way back in 2003). I speak on behalf of our entire team when I say we are looking forward to building on the solid foundations of the CRCSI to push the power of ‘where’ within the Australian and New Zealand economies.

Watch this space, there will be more to announce in the coming months as we move to our next frontier!
