Chief Executive Officer / executive director
As Chief Executive Officer, Michael’s focus is to guide Kinetic IT, achieving continued strategic growth as the company evolves its services and expands into new regions. Committed to future horizons and fostering Kinetic IT’s unique brand of delivery, Michael understands that beyond anything else, the key to achieving the company’s goals is the continued investment into the success of Kinetic IT’s employees, enabling their ability to deliver outstanding services to our customers.
"Nothing makes me prouder than when we bring brilliant talent together and produce outstanding solutions that don’t just solve complex challenges, but have a resounding impact to our customers. This is what we mean by delivering genuine success."
Chief Financial Officer
Kinetic IT’s “numbers guru”, Russell has a wealth of experience across all aspects of financial, regulatory, and commercial management. As CFO, Russell is responsible for Kinetic IT’s financial operations, managing the company’s corporate finance, business systems and intelligence, financial services, and business technology functions. Russell plays a fundamental role in supporting Kinetic IT’s strategy through strategic, financial, and commercial leadership.
"Kinetic IT’s growth story is underpinned by a commitment to equilibrium across customer, crew, company and community. Focusing on this balance drives value and success that leads to the right numbers, rather than being ‘driven by the numbers’."
Chief People Officer
Rowena is a devoted employee advocate and champion of diversity and inclusivity. As Chief People Officer, she is responsible for developing Kinetic IT’s talent management philosophy and implementing contemporary practices which support achievement of the company’s strategic objectives, drive meaningful change and enhance Kinetic IT’s competitive position.
"Our customers and their success isn’t seen as separate from our company and our success. Instead we see the two as intricately intertwined throughout our operational DNA… and that is our (not so) secret sauce."
Chief Solutions Officer

Inspired by advanced technologies and data science, Brett’s creativity and passion are nurtured through his industry and community involvement, and mentoring of many emerging leaders in Kinetic IT.

"Being part of a company that is genuinely trying to make a difference is amazing. Kinetic IT inspires me the most when our people come together to solve complex challenges with a triple win for our customers, crew and the community."
Chief Operating Officer
As Chief Operating Officer, Shane has oversight of Kinetic IT’s managed services business. His main focus is to ensure that we are delivering great service and commercial value to our customers. A key component of this is ensuring we understand their industry dynamics and key drivers and constantly look for ways to innovate and support them towards their business goals.
