Intersect’s board appointed Marc Bailey, currently Chief Operating Officer, to the position of CEO effective 1 May 2015. “Marc and Ian have worked together as customer/partner and as colleagues for many years."
Marc’s appointment positions Intersect strongly for its next phase of its development: providing operational excellence and researcher focus across new product and service offerings”, said Professor Mark Wainwright. Bailey joined Intersect as COO in 2014. An experienced software and networking technology manager, he was previously CIO at Macquarie University. In earlier CTO and CEO roles he informed governmental policy and information management at regional, state and federal levels in Australia and New Zealand, as well as whole-of-government change management in the Scottish Government and Welsh Assembly, and standards development for the European Union. Dr Gibson will remain involved with Intersect in a consulting role for strategic projects.
