Tabcorp seeks new CIO as Mandy Ross departs for academic fields

Australia ASX gambling group Tabcorp Holdings has confirmed the departure of c-level executive Mandy Ross, who has chosen to pursue a new career in academia.

Ross has served as Tabcorp’s Group Chief Information Officer (CIO) since 2017 and is set to leave the company in April of next year.

In its update, Tabcorp informs that Ross has chosen to join Griffith University in Brisbane, taking the role of Chief Digital Officer – ‘allowing her to follow her passion of working in higher education’.

A key technology stakeholder for Tabcorp’s enlarged operations, Ross has formerly served as CIO and Head of Tech Transformation projects for merger partner Tatts Group (2014-2018).

During the course of 2019, Tabcorp has moved to restructure its executive leadership team by announcing a raft of new c-level appointments charged with integrating the assets of Tatts Group.

Following a year of merger adjustments, the company heads into a critical 2020, in which it has maintained that it will deliver AUS $135 to $145 million a year in group cost savings.

Concluding its statement, Tabcorp confirms that it has begun its executive search for Ross’ replacement.
