Ahilen in a few words

A results-focused individual with over 10 years of IT project experience in Financial Services, Government, Retail and FMCG industries. Enthusiastic and successful in leading major complex projects adopting waterfall, agile and hybrid methodologies that utilise Digital, ERP and Omni-channel solutions. I have worked in start ups and large companies such as Accenture and Ernst Young across Australia, United Kingdom and France. I’m curious, autonomous and have a natural ability to get things done proactively, whilst empowering teams to perform at their best.

I have a technical background and developed my career as a business analyst, then becoming a scrum master and now successful chef de projet. Having this range of skills and experience helps me understand the complexities involved in IT projects and lead teams with empathy.
