Atturra appoints Microsoft executive as new General Manager

Atturra, formerly FTS Group, has appointed Estelle Ivory as its General Manager (Business Applications) across its Atturra Microsoft Cloud and Applications business unit. Ivory brings a wealth of expertise in Microsoft Cloud and Applications and has spent more than 10 years working with Microsoft as both Consulting Lead – Client and Data Centre, Australia, and Consulting Practice Lead – Dynamics, Asia Pacific Japan. Most recently, Ivory was employed as the Client Delivery Director for Optus. Ivory noted that Atturra is a highly successful organisation with an experienced team of professionals focused on delivering specialism at scale to its clients. “This is an exciting time for Atturra as it continues to grow in the Australian market, and I am pleased to join such a strong and passionate team. I’m thrilled at the opportunity to join Atturra to help further establish it as the leading local advisory technology specialist,” Ivory said.

Greg Mace, Executive General Manager of Atturra Microsoft Cloud and Applications, said Ivory is the ideal person to help lead Atturra’s Microsoft Cloud and Applications business unit as it moves from strength to strength, delivering a full spectrum of end-to-end IT services and a new standard of excellence to clients. “Atturra continues to make great strides to deliver deep specialisation and better end-to-end service for more than 600 local clients across federal, state, and local government, and the commercial sectors,” Mace said.

In this role, Ivory will focus on strengthening the company’s position in the Canberra market and taking the Atturra Microsoft Cloud and Applications business unit to the next level. Ivory will function as General Manager, leading senior engagement with key strategic clients, including the Department of Agriculture, Water and the Environment, the Department of Defence, and the Department of Health. Mace added that as part of her role, Ivory will primarily focus on building the Atturra Microsoft Cloud and Applications team, capabilities, knowledge and go-to-market offerings in both the Dynamics 365 and Power Platform space. “With her extensive expertise leading and working with diverse and high-performing teams, and strong relationships with Microsoft, we’re excited to see what Estelle will achieve in this new role and are thrilled to have her join the team,” Mace said.

As an advocate for building digital skills and supporting women in IT, Ivory will also help Atturra continue driving initiatives in the space through the company’s partnerships with Microsoft, Women in ICT (WIC), Women Rising, and Code like a Girl. “I am passionate about playing an active part in driving the role of women in ICT forward alongside a team that is equally as passionate about these issues as I am,” Ivory said.

Atturra has accelerated its growth in the Australian market, following several strategic acquisitions in the region, including Noetic Group, ESAM Consulting and Mentum Systems. Ivory’s appointment follows the company’s transition to the consolidated Atturra brand.
