As Head of Development at the Eckermann Group, I lead our talented and experienced engineering teams in aligning their architectural, design, development, and support efforts with the growing needs of our businesses and customers.
From 2 decades of product development, I have accumulated a substantial software engineering expertise in a broad range of industries including satellite communication, embedded systems, financial services, healthcare, education and training, heavy industries, recruitment, and agriculture. It’s been great to bring this experience and maturity to the Eckermann Group, and to play a part in the Eckermann Group establishing itself as a respected technology player in the Australian and New Zealand real estate markets with a high-performing, start-up culture.
What Eckermanns Values mean to me?
Product development is a dynamic space, with many ideas and opportunities competing for time. I follow agile principles, focusing on short iterations and fast feedback to deliver value quickly where it is most needed; and to easily adapt our plans to incorporate emerging opportunities.
Leading our engineering teams, I see my role as doing whatever is required to help those teams succeed in meeting the goals of the Eckermann Group. This ranges from working with the business units to explore how technology can amplify their capabilities, facilitating integrations with our customer and technology partners, working on technical designs and architecture with engineers, through to testing of changes and supporting the environments our customers rely on.
You can’t have enduring professional relationships unless you act with integrity in all things, and trust others to do the same.
