Commercial & Finance Lead, Future Public Transport Ticketing (PTT) Program, Department of Transport and Planning Melbourne

I’ve spent the past dozen years working on Ticketing projects from the client side in various roles in either procurement, delivery and in some instances project recovery.  I was heavily involved in the procurement of an Account Based Ticketing System for Brisbane and Melbourne and worked subsequently on the delivery of these projects. In Sydney I worked on the operationalisation of the Opal system and the preliminary work to roll-out Open-Loop Payments in Sydney.

Prior to my life in Ticketing I have worked in the finance, telecommunications and healthcare industry. Once upon a time in the distant past I was an Electrical Engineer but have managed to find myself in the exhilarating world of electronic public ticketing systems.
