I am pleased to announce the appointments of the University’s Chief Financial Officer (CFO) and Chief Information Officer (CIO).
Jonathan Cowper has been appointed CFO and will join UWA on Monday 10 July. Jonathan is an experienced CFO having worked for leading FTSE 100 organisations in both the UK and Australia. Most recently he was Group Finance Director for AB Sugar, a world leading manufacturer based in the UK where he helped to reshape the business portfolio and drive performance improvement projects across the businesses.
A chartered management accountant and member of Australia’s CPA, Jonathan brings with him a wealth of commercial finance and change management experience which will be essential as UWA successfully navigates this time of change in the Australian higher education sector.
Warwick Calkin has been appointed CIO and will join us from resource company South32. He has worked in various IT roles for over 30 years throughout New Zealand, Australia, the Netherlands, Canada and Singapore.
Most recently Warwick has held leadership positions with South32 and BHP Billiton and Telstra. He also has experience from the utilities, banking and insurance and gaming sector and will join UWA on Monday 14 August.
I’m sure you will join with me to welcome both Jonathan and Warwick.
Executive Director, Corporate Services
