Australian business consulting firm Elabor8 has boosted its executive team with the appointment of 30-year ICT industry veteran John Sullivan as its new chief executive.

Sullivan previously worked for Vicinity Centres where he was chief technology officer.

Elabor8 co-founder and former managing director, Paul Velonis, has moved into the role of executive chairman on the board where he will oversee expansion and investment plans for the next phase of the company’s growth.

Sullivan started his career in software development and has spent the last 12 years working with organisations such as Sensis, MYOB, and Jetstar, guiding them through digital transformations and developing sustainable business success.

“We are very excited to welcome one of the founding fathers of Agility in Australia to Elabor8,” said Velonis.

“John is recognised as a thought leader within both the Agile and technology communities and has a strong track record in building large, high-performing Agile teams in corporate Australia. This experience will be invaluable to our clients who are looking to emulate this change themselves.

“John understands the changes in structure, culture and leadership required to enable the move to Agility and intimately understands both sides of the vendor/client relationship – which will bring renewed focus to our own product development and customer centricity."

“Elabor8 is the industry leader in Agile transformation practice,” said Sullivan. “I am eager to expand the company’s vision and work with new and existing customers to ensure their businesses reach an optimum level of success.

“My role is ultimately about steering the company through its next phase of growth. I believe in providing pathways for people to grow and succeed, with the aim of building a stronger IT sector to support its expansion and evolution into the future.”
