AUCloud appoints top federal ex-CTO
Sovereign cloud services provider AUCloud has appointed Brad Bastow as the company’s inaugural CTO, following his term as CTO of the Department of Prime Minister and Cabinet.
In addition to his role at PM&C, Bastow also has extensive experience working with the Defence Signals Directorate (precursor to the Australian Signals Directorate).
“I had considered myself a career public servant surrounded by clever people and good policy as the only route to effect change on a national scale. However, I also recognised that we sometimes let ourselves down by failing to execute effectively, thereby not meeting citizen demands,” Bastow said.
“Having worked with many cloud providers in my past roles, I concluded that AUCloud, with its provenance of success and credible experience at scale, could provide the exemplar for Australia as to what is possible when entrepreneurs design something truly fit for purpose — an Australian owned and managed company developed to support the country’s sovereign goals,” he added.
Bastow will lead AUCloud’s technology and security teams.
“Brad is an exceptionally talented technology leader, who has been at the forefront of Australian federal government cloud strategy since inception,” said Phil Dawson, AUCloud’s Managing Director.
