Former Jetstar chief information officer Claudine Ogilvie has claimed the final seat on the Scyne Advisory board, bringing over two decades worth of leadership in the areas of tech and innovation.

Officially launched in November, public sector consulting breakaway Scyne Advisory has finished assembling its intentionally diverse advisory board with the appointment of one-time KPMG consumer & industrial markets general manager Claudine Ogilvie as its final independent non-executive director.

Ogilvie has also led her own consultancy for the past year, and recently co-launched a supply chain data solutions start-up, Hivepix.

Scyne fills final board seat with former Jetstar CIO Claudine Ogilvie

“Claudine’s deep technology knowledge, across corporates as well as start-up businesses will bring a valued perspective to the Scyne Advisory Board. Throughout her career, Claudine has led the introduction of transformational technology in large organisations, which is a critical expertise for the board,” stated business veteran John Mullen, who was appointed as inaugural chair in November.

With the six-member board now in place (further including Andrew Greenwood, Scyne representative Jane Quodling, and Adrian Loader and Fay Bou of parent Allegro), Mullen reiterated its completion had been a top priority: “Our new governance structure is a very important aspect of building trust. We strongly believe that the transparency and discipline of our corporate structure is essential in our quest to support governments in the challenges they face.”

Ogilvie brings altogether more than two decades of governance and leadership experience in technology, data innovation and business transformation to the table, including a three-and-a-half-year stint as Jetstar’s chief information officer to early 2020. Prior to that she was CIO for three years at agricultural feed company Ridley Corporation, before which she spent five years with KPMG’s consumer & industrial markets practice out of Sydney.

More recently, Ogilvie has served as the Compass Group’s director of digital and innovation for the Asia Pacific, while spending time on the boards of Youi Insurance and, presently, financial services firm Cuscal. In addition, Ogilvie early last year established her own leadership consultancy, O&O, followed by the recent launch of supply chain data solution Hivepix alongside former Quantium product executive Melissa Hayes.

“There is no doubt public purpose consulting is ripe for a different approach, and I was attracted to the different approach that Scyne is taking to support governments and the unique challenges that confront them,” Ogilvie said of her appointment. “Scyne’s vision to drive excellence in public purpose advisory, unconflicted by the private sector, supporting governments to deliver equitable and prosperous communities resonated very strongly with me.”
