Malcolm leads Avanade Australia


Microsoft-focussed digital and cloud service provider Avanade has appointed Laura Malcolm to the role of Australia general manager.

"We are thrilled to have Laura lead our Australian team and business. Her deep experience and expertise across the Microsoft ecosystem, combined with her passion for people and innovation, make her the perfect person to lead our next phase of growth," said Avanade growth markets area president Rodrigo Caserta.

Malcolm joined Avanade seven years ago as Australia CTO, and has also worked for the company as United Kingdom digital lead, COO for UK and Ireland, and global advisory practice lead before returning to Australia in 2020 as growth and strategy lead for growth markets (APAC and LATAM).

She previously worked as a key account director at Oracle, director at Capgemini, and solution architect at IBM.

Malcolm holds a bachelor's degree in physics from the University of Bristol (UK).

"I'm excited to step into this new role - helping our people realise their full potential, supporting our clients through a period of accelerated digital transformation and helping them prepare for the future through digital innovation," she said.

"Together with the entire Avanade Australia team, I'm really looking forward to bringing our purpose to life, working with our clients, partners and communities to make a genuine human impact."

Mac Ghani, Malcolm's predecessor, is taking on the role of global growth and strategy executive.

Caserta said "I'd also like to thank Mac for the tremendous impact that he has made on our Australian business over the past three years. I look forward to continuing to work with him in his new role as our global growth and strategy executive."
