Wilson’s appointment marks his return to the Macquarie group, having previously spent a decade with Macquarie Telecom Group across numerous key technology roles, ending as chief technology officer.
Wilson was most recently chief operating officer at Brennan IT.
“This is an exciting time in Macquarie Government, with the ongoing investment in building cloud and information security services and products to precisely meet the needs of government agencies now and into the future,” Wilson said.
“But Macquarie Government itself is solely devoted to understanding and meeting the needs of government agency customers, supported by a team of more than 100 government security certified engineers, all based in Australia.”
According to Wilson, there is growing recognition by governments around the world of the need to develop national capability in both cloud and cyber security.
“Macquarie Government’s recent strong growth shows it is well placed to respond to these priorities from Federal and state governments.
“I’m excited to have the opportunity to come back to Macquarie to be a part of building what I believe is a business for the future.”
