One of Australia’s largest owner and operator of digital infrastructure, Indara Digital Infrastructure (Indara), has today announced its latest C-suite appointment with Tanya Whiteing taking the reins as Chief Information Officer (CIO).
In her new role, Whiteing brings over 30 years of experience to strengthen Indara’s technology capabilities and align them to Indara’s ambitious growth strategy, as it continues to expand to meet the demand for fast and reliable digital connectivity.
Commenting on the appointment, Cameron Evans, Chief Executive Officer at Indara said: “Technology and IT are key enablers of our strategy and critical to achieving our growth ambitions. To drive our progression in these areas, I’m delighted to welcome Tanya Whiteing in our newly created CIO role. Tanya brings a wealth of experience from previous CIO roles, consulting, and shares our forward-looking vision. This is a key role for our organisation, responsible for ensuring we have a best-in-class technology platform that enables ongoing innovation, security across our business and to support new growth opportunities.”
In recent years, Indara has experienced significant growth through the integration of Axicom and Australian Tower Network and the acquisition of ENE.HUB and HUB. As part of Whiteing’s new role, she will lead the company’s technology strategy to align with the overall business’ direction, as well as build out future capability from both a team and technology standpoint. One of her main tasks will be to transition the company’s various platforms towards a streamlined, unified digital approach – combining all platforms under one Indara. Whiteing will also build on Indara’s current technology enablement processes, from apps to business intelligence and operational systems.
Whiteing said: “As a society, we’ve seen digital connectivity become deeply engrained in how we work, live, and connect with those around us, especially since COVID-19. The need for better, faster, more reliable connection will only grow, and Indara truly understands how important it is that communities across Australia have access to this.
“The world of digital connectivity is constantly evolving, and I’m excited to be joining an organisation as bold, forward-looking, and innovative as Indara as we embark on the next stage of digital infrastructure.”
Whiteing comes to Indara with strong technology-led credentials in both corporate and consultancy spaces. Prior to Indara, Whiteing was the CIO of construction materials supplier Boral, and Business & Technology Services Director for food manufacturer George Weston Foods. Prior to these roles, she worked in professional services consulting for organisations such as Deloitte and Accenture.
Tanya’s appointment is the latest in a string of recent company milestones. Last year, Indara completed the acquisition of smart street furniture providers, ENE.HUB and HUB, to enable the deployment of small cells and advanced smart city services, further strengthening its vision to be the nation’s leading digital connectivity provider.
