Bishop's the new boss at FinXL Canberra


IT professional services provider FinXL has appointed Jodine Bishop as group regional manager for its Canberra business.

Noting the health and economic issues facing every federal government department and their need for digital transformation, FinXL managing director Tracy Thomson said "We are therefore truly excited to have someone with Jodine's skills, experience and established Canberra and federal government networks on board to continue to consolidate and expand our large Canberra services footprint with new vigour and energy.

"When combined with Jodine's expert security knowledge, strategic thinking and wider network of expert go-to-market technology partners, it presents us with a unique and timely opportunity to deepen our reach into supporting the government in meeting these unprecedented challenges and continuing their digital transformation journey to realise efficiencies and scale." she said.

Bishop's appointment and FinXL's plans for further expansion follow FinXL's acquisition of local SAP specialist services firm Southern Cross Computing almost two years ago.

Bishop joined FinXL from BAE Systems Applied Intelligence, where she most recently worked as head of national security.

She previously held senior federal government sales roles at Optus and Alphawest, and worked as a project manager during an earlier stint at BAE Systems.

Earlier in her career Bishop worked for the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade, and the Australian Federal Police.

She holds a BA in justice studies from Queensland University of Technology, and master's degrees in international relations and business administration from the Australian National University.

This has led many enterprises to build passive networks, which are inferior in quality and ultimately limit their future growth.

Why are passive solutions considered inferior? And what makes active solutions great?

Read more about these two solutions, and how PacketLight fits into all this.
