Australian technology company Electro Optic Systems (EOS) has announced the appointment of Shane Geisler as its inaugural Chief Information Officer (CIO). Geisler will bring to EOS’ executive leadership team over 15 years of experience in leading the end-to-end delivery of secure, scalable, cost-effective ICT systems in a range of organisations, including large multinationals and the federal government.
An expert in digital transformation and technology solutions that measurably improve corporate governance, productivity, profitability, and employee engagement, Mr Geisler – who will assume oversight of the EOS group’s global ICT capability – will work closely with the executive leadership teams of each of EOS’ business areas to:
- fully align the company’s ICT strategies and systems with its corporate objectives
- streamline, formalise and modernise ICT operations across the company
- ensure that EOS is adopting a proactive defensive stance in relation to the rapidly evolving cyber-security threats it faces.
Geisler joined EOS in 2020 and has previously acted as the Canberra-headquartered company’s IT Program Manager and Head of Global ICT. His elevation to the CIO position comes in the wake of a range of notable achievements in those roles. “I am honoured to become the inaugural CIO of a growing multinational business,” Geisler said. “It’s an exciting time to be part of EOS, and I’m looking forward to leading the technology transformation of our company into an agile, cloud-first market leader with operations across four continents.”
Pete Short, EOS’ Group Chief Operating Officer, said of the appointment, “The CIO role is critical to ensuring our expanding global business needs are facilitated via modern and effective IT and cyber-security services. Shane has effectively undertaken a three-year assessment for this demanding role, and the EOS board and executive leadership team are confident that he will do a great job.”
Geisler is a graduate of the Australian Institute of Company Directors, holds a Master of Business Administration and is currently completing a Juris Doctor graduate law degree.
