Macquarie Government has welcomed back int the fold, Dayle Wilson, who returns to take on the role of head of product and operations.

Wilson’s brief will see him supporting the business’s expanding suite of government-focused services, including its Australian Signals Directorate (ASD)-certified Government cloud services.

Wilson, who most recently served as Chief Operating Officer at Brennan IT, previously spent a decade with Macquarie Telecom Group across various tech roles including as CTO.

“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,” said Wilson. “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.”

Wilson noted a  growing recognition by governments globally of the need to develop national capability in both cloud and cyber security.

“Macquarie Government’s recent strong growth shows it is well placed to respond to these priorities from Federal and state governments,” he added. “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.”
