Simon Lewis
Partner ITNewcom, Sydney
I have a career mix spanning industry and management consulting, with experience in identifying and solving business and IT challenges.

The early part of my career was focused on technical IT roles (working with military and civil defence systems), as well as airline systems integration, commercial systems service delivery, program management and leadership. I then spent seven years with management consultant A.T. Kearney, advising clients in the telecommunications and insurance sectors. In this role, I led consulting and client teams in identifying and implementing large-scale projects involving cost reduction, IT strategy and outsourcing, offshoring (IT and business processes), operational effectiveness and organisation redesign.

I then spent three years with the Commonwealth Bank of Australia (sourcing and managing application service providers), followed by five years with Macquarie Group.
