Canberra-based consulting firm Synergy Group has promoted two of its senior advisors to Executive Director: Angus Allan and Mark Stoya.

Allan has been with Synergy Group for two years, having previously served EY for twelve years. At the Big Four firm, Allan worked in the firm’s Advisory division focused on performance improvement, business transformation and change management. More recently he was an Assistant Director in the firm’s HR Projects team, working with internal colleagues on delivering global HR initiatives across the EY organisation in Asia Pacific.

Appointed a Senior Manager at Synergy Group when he joined, Allan has now seen his successful track record rewarded. During his two year spell, he has among others helped National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC) with the implementation of a new Grants Management system, the Department of Agriculture with simplifying its benefits management and the Department of Parliamentary Services with the setup of a strategic plan.

Part of Synergy Group's Performance & Financial Management practice, Allan specialises in assisting organisations – particularly government departments and agencies – with improving their performance and transforming their business.

At Synergy Group, he focuses on technology implementations in the public domain.
