Manchester/London/Sydney - 7th February 2020: Informed Solutions today announces the appointment of Marie-Louise Florian-Kellett as Managing Director of its growing Australian operation.
Florian-Kellet’s appointment underlines Informed’s commitment to further investing in and expanding the Australian business, having already established itself as a capable and trusted supplier; evidenced by its success in winning a number of Australian innovation awards, as well as the UK’s Queen’s Award for Innovation and the World IT Congress (WITSA) digital platforms award.
Amongst Informed Solutions’ significant successes in Australia, is the recent Whole-of-Government Platforms Interoperability Discovery Study and Recommendations Report for the Digital Transformation Agency. Another major ground-breaking project in Australia for the company was delivering NSW Government’s first state-wide environmental data platform and portal (SEED), which joins up 9 major government departments and agencies and more than 1,200 datasets, laying the foundations for transparency and improved decision making on environmental data and land management issues.
Marie joins Informed Solutions with significant business change, digital product and services experience having delivered transformation projects for clients operating in a wide variety of sectors. She has a passion for creating value and delivering successful business outcomes for clients through the responsible and ethical use of technology and data. Marie’s experience and focus closely aligns with Informed’s values, purpose and commitment to #TechForGood, including using digital technology to provide outstanding citizen-centred online services and helping build a more inclusive, fair and safe society.
Florian-Kellett’s reflections on joining Informed Solutions: “This is a hugely exciting time for the company - I believe Informed Solutions has come of age regarding its plans for the Australian business – particularly bearing in mind the challenges we face as a nation and the opportunities for government and industry to work together. This includes better preparedness, response, recovery and learning from the bushfire crisis and natural disasters, as well as working through the global geo-political, societal and economic uncertainties, and spread of pandemic diseases. I am committed and proud, as both an Australian professional and the Managing Director of Informed Solutions in Australia, to finding more sustainable solutions to the challenges that we face and to helping build Australia into a digital nation of significance within the global economy.
“To that end, since joining the company, I have spent some time with the UK side of the business; meeting clients, colleagues and alliance partners and experiencing first-hand the company’s formidable capabilities, unique award-winning solutions, tools and methods.
“I was also incredibly impressed to be introduced to Informed’s global digital operating platform, which enables us to seamlessly use world-class systems for work planning, resource scheduling, jobs ticketing, service management, DevOps, performance management and knowledge management, as well as efficient on/off boarding of delivery teams and alliance partners. It’s clear to see how Informed Solutions’ strategic and significant investment in building a global digital operations platform, commitment to ISO compliance in all key areas of the business, and high standards of professionalism have enabled it to consistently deliver outstanding transformation outcomes for clients and win so many leading industry awards.
“I’m excited to be able to leverage these capabilities into Australia because with over 20 years of experience, I honestly have not seen such unique and exceptional digital transformation solutions, methods and tools. In a crowded marketplace of digital innovators and disruptors, I know that Informed Solutions stands out because we have the credibility and long standing, proven track record of successful delivery.
“Our growing Informed Solutions team in Australia is keen to help our Australian clients be more inspired, confident and successful in delivering their digital transformation ambitions”.
Elizabeth Vega, Group CEO at Informed Solutions says: “The new investment and growth plans for the Australian business come after an intense period of recruiting and up-skilling the team, re-engineering our processes across the company, and developing substantial new capabilities within our global digital operating platform. Informed Solutions is committed to sustainable and responsible business and we want any investment we make to better serve our clients, people and the environment, as well as our business. For Australian clients, this means that we are a trusted, safe pair of hands as an innovation partner and can be depended on to offer world-class solutions, skills and services. We are committed and invested in helping clients successfully deliver their digital transformation outcomes, so that both they and their customers benefit from secure, connected, converged, smart and personalised digital services”.
