Wontok says Carney was formerly Principal Product Manager, Ecosystem Platform at Atlassian, and was selected for his extensive expertise and global experience.
"We’re delighted to welcome Bruce on board our growing team. As Head of Product at Wontok, he’ll bring a unique global perspective, having lived, worked and delivered solutions in all major global regions across a range of tech areas," Bruce Perry, Wontok chief operating officer said.
Carney - who Wontok says joins the company at a time when many countries are battling the rising tide of cyber threats - started out as a Research Engineer at the University of Newcastle, has over three decades’ experience in the tech industry.
His career includes senior roles at major technology companies including Nokia, Telstra and Atlassian across the UK, US and Australia.
"I’m thrilled to be joining Wontok at a very exciting time for the company and the industry. Data security is of paramount importance as we move to Internet 4.0 and the 'Big Data Bang', with businesses across the world facing critical cybercrime threats and attacks,” Carney said.
“I look forward to bringing Wontok to more organisations as we continue the battle for a more secure internet while protecting customers."
Carney is also an advisory member for SaaS Childcare Management developer Kinder m8, and he established the first registered Code Club in NSW, where he volunteers to teach 9-11-year-old children the beauty of programming. There are now over 2000 Code Clubs in Australia.
