The Australian Computer Society has appointed ICT industry veteran Todd McGregor as General Manager for Startup Catalyst.

McGregor joins Startup Catalyst - acquired by ACS in September 2018 - after a global career conducting business in over 45 countries across five continents, including roles with Gartner and Forrester.

Since returning to Australia in 2009 he has initiated, grown and subsequently sold several businesses to both private and ASX 25 companies in the telco and IT sectors.

"I look forward to engaging with Australia's most forward thinking corporations, all levels of Government, Venture Capitalists and the broader ICT Industry alike to ensure we have direct pathways for our best and brightest talent that fosters the growth of our leading Australian tech start up and scaleups on the world stage,” McGregor said.

“Achieving both domestic and international commercial outcomes is a key imperative in our role of guiding, mentoring and enabling our most innovative tech minds and ideas - and we will leverage all of the greatest attributes of ACS, our three start-of-the art innovation labs and standing in the Australian ICT sector to ensure success.”

ACS says McGregor will be responsible for leading the business in line with its broader strategies along with managing Startup Catalyst’s missions and the Enterprise in Residence function at River City Labs.

“A key factor in Todd’s appointment is his understanding of the business application of technology across a wide range of industry verticals including technology, telecommunications and consulting,” the ACS notes

Siobhan Casey, Director of ACS’ Scale-Ups and Innovation Labs, added: “I am very excited to welcome Todd McGregor to Startup Catalyst and the broader ACS team.

“Todd’s vast international business experience, coupled with successfully exiting several startups uniquely positions him to lead the dynamic Startup Catalyst program, which focuses on the cultural transformation of the Australian economy to one that is fast paced, startup aware, and global first.”

McGregor is based in ACS’ Brisbane office.
