"With the appointment of high calibre personnel such as Mark Carrick and Dr Nettleton to our team, I am confident that Veriluma is in an even stronger position to be able to execute on our strategy and bring early success for the company and our shareholders," said chief executive Elizabeth Whitelock.
"Mark will support Glen Toscan, a former RAAF group captain and defence consultant, and our government and business relations manager, to introduce and implement prescriptive analytics to government and industry."
Carrick is a former NSW commander of counter-terrorism intelligence and is described as one of Australia's most experienced counter-terrorism practitioners.
Carrick has an MBA from the University of Sydney Business School and is a member of the Australian Institute of Company Directors.

Earlier in his career he worked as an engineer in the electricity supply industry.
He holds a PhD in economics from UTS, an MBA from Macquarie Graduate School of Management, an M.Eng.Sci from UNSW, and a B.Eng from the University of Sydney.
