Co-opted Councillor

Tim is Chief Information and Operating Officer at the NSW Department of Family and Community Services. Tim has been in the NSW Public Service since 2011, joining from the Private sector where he held senior executive roles in both Australia and Overseas.

Tim is also the Inaugural and current Chair of the NSW Public Sector Community of ICT Professionals, a community established three years ago that holds member networking, collaboration and information sharing events to help promote the ICT community in NSW government.

Tim advocates that relationships and networking are key success factors for any public servant, and that there is strength in synergy and unity as the public service fulfils its duties to the citizens and businesses of NSW. He believes that a transparent, agile and empowered public service is required to deliver better services to the state, which cannot be achieved in isolation or departmental silos.

Tim hopes to help IPAA engage and inform its large member base and build on the great work done by IPAA in keeping the Digital and Innovation agenda in the Public Service at the forefront of members minds as a way of solving the challenges that the sector and communities of NSW face today.
