Intersect’s Board has appointed Marc Bailey to the position of CEO effective 1 May 2015.
Chairman of the Intersect Board, Emeritus Professor Mark Wainwright AM, said, “Marc’s appointment positions Intersect strongly for the next phase of its development: providing operational excellence and researcher focus across new product and service offerings”.
Marc Bailey joined Intersect as Chief Operating Officer in April 2014 from his role as CIO at Macquarie University. A former Director of Intersect, he has served as Director and Treasurer of the Australian Access Federation Inc., Director of AARNET Pty Ltd, as NSW and ACT chair of the Council of Australian University Directors of Information Technology.
“The next few years require an even more intimate and transparent partnership with members and customers. We’ll look to sustain and improve research returns on earlier investment in Space and Time assets, grow our traditional software and consulting projects and develop emerging data science activities” said Bailey.
“It’s very personally fulfilling to be offered the opportunity to serve as Intersect’s CEO and lead such an exceptional and motivated team. I’m excited about being all-in for Australian researchers.”
