The Tech Council of Australia announced CEO Kate Pounder will step down from her role, effective February 2.
Robyn Denholm, Chair of the TCA Board, acknowledged Kate’s pivotal role in launching and solidifying the TCA as a vital industry body, as well as elevating the profile of the tech sector in Australia.
“Over the last three years, Kate has worked tirelessly to ensure that the tech sector possesses a strong and united voice on the national stage,” said Ms. Denholm.
“She has assembled an impressive team, unifying policy and advocacy efforts, while fostering a large and diverse member ecosystem.”
In her statement, Kate Pounder expressed the significance of her tenure at the TCA, describing it as the pinnacle of her professional career.
“I feel incredibly privileged to have led this organization for the past three years,” Ms. Pounder remarked.
She also expressed her commitment to continue championing the tech industry in a personal capacity and eagerly anticipates watching the organization’s continued growth and impact as it continues to champion Australia’s remarkable tech sector.
Kate’s decision to step down is driven by a desire to limit her travel commitments and remain in Canberra to support a family-related health matter.
The TCA Board will bid farewell to Kate Pounder with a special event scheduled for late January.
The recruitment process for a new CEO is already underway, and in the interim, Ryan Black, Head of Public Policy, will serve as the acting CEO.
