Cubic Consulting, a consultancy specialised in business transformation, technology implementation and change management, has named David Dekker as its new chief executive officer. The Dutchman brings over a decade of experience in the IT and commercial business world to the Australian consultancy.

“I am thrilled to join Cubic Consulting at this time in its growth and to be working with a skilled team in supporting Australian public and private sector organisations embarking on their digital transformation programmes of change in the years ahead,” said Dekker. 

The Dutchman joins from SAP, where he led the firm’s education practice for Australia, having previously held the equivalent role in the Netherlands. Before joining the ERP giant, Dekker worked for two consultancy and software solutions companies specialised in learning & development. In the roles, he worked as a business consultant at companies including Air France/KLM, Shell and Rabobank, and at various large insurance companies and SME businesses. He also held a role in sales prior to his transition to SAP.

At Cubic Consulting, Dekker will from the firm’s base in Sydney be responsible for growing the firm’s footprint, with a focus on IT transformation. Digital and technology services are the fastest growing segments in Australia’s US$5 billion consulting market, with Cubic Consulting “uniquely positioned to help organisations drive IT transformation” according to the firm’s new chief executive. “With almost two decades of experience in IT-focused change programmes, we are uniquely positioned to help these organisations.”

The consulting firm is a recognised partner of both SAP and Oracle in the education space, and is an authorised resellers of Totara LMS, a learning management system.

Cubic Consulting is part of the FTS Group, also the parent of Anatas, TS Data & AI, Kobold, SME Gateway and Veritec. “Cubic Consulting is a key business within the FTS Group focusing on the people side in a digital transformation. David’s experience and skills in working with an extensive base of companies in distinct markets will be highly prized by organisations transitioning to cloud applications and embracing a culture of constant change in support of delivering competitive advantage,” remarked Stephen Kowal, FTS Group’s chief executive officer.
