State-owned power generator Stanwell Corporation has put itself in the market for a chief information officer after letting the position lapse.
The advertisement for the role marketed it as a newly created
position to handle recent investments in ICT infrastructure,
capability and resources. "Now is the time to deliver," it says. It
expected the new CIO to drive ICT strategy for the company.
The company did have a CIO position previously, but in 2008
after former CIO Jerry Sadlowski left, an internal business
decision saw the CIO role and responsibilities absorbed into the IT
team, according to a spokesperson for the company. Now, however,
the position is being recreated "to meet business needs".
The new CIO will report to the general manager of business
services Brad Neven.
Earlier this year, the company, which provides over 30 per cent
of Queensland's electricity,
requested proposals from vendors to build two new Tier 3 datacentres
and to provide ICT managed support services. According to the Queensland
Government tender site, the contracts have been closed, but not awarded.
