Reporting to the CEO as a key part of the tight-knit Executive Team, the CIO is a pivotal senior management role responsible for the development, implementation and advancement of the IT strategy and technology roadmaps, ensuring alignment of the technology environment to achieve Latrobe’s strategy and direction. Providing visionary leadership to a capable and diverse technology team focussed on delivering an effective, secure and reliable IT environment, the CIO will also lead key strategic projects and ensure collaborative relationships with internal stakeholders and technology partners.
