Global technology sector veteran Darren Needham-Walker has been appointed Chief Marketing Officer of Brisbane tech startup Advanced Mobility Analytics Group AMAG.

"As we move into the next stage of our company’s evolution I believe we needed to make a strategic appointment of a Chief Marketing Officer,’ stated Dr Simon Washington, CEO & Founder of AMAG a “world leader” in predictive analytics in the Transport sector, through the innovative application of AI/MI and Vision Analytics at scale.

"And after an extensive search, I can announce that Darren Needham-Walker will join us, effective September 1st, bringing 20+years of global technology sector experience to my executive team,’ Washington added.

"From my first engagement with AMAG, and subsequent discussions with all three founders, I found they were bonded by a common vision, but most appealing to me was how it was based on a clear and unwavering purpose, to do good for humanity through the application of AI/MI to the transportation sector,’ said Darren Needham-Walker.

AMAG says Needham-Walker has a long history in senior leadership roles such as ANZ CMO at HP in Sydney, Global Senior Director – HP based in the USA, also working across Lenovo and IBM, and most recently with TechnologyOne also based Brisbane.

Our road networks are changing in both volume and usage to more than passenger vehicles, such as buses, trucks, vans not to mention pedestrians, bicycles. motorcycles, all of which our platform individually identifies and takes into consideration.’
