Prominent executives join BJSS Australia

A number of senior appointments have allowed British consultancy firm BJSS to gradually expand its local ranks in recent times.

BJSS, founded in 1993 in Leeds, opened an office in Melbourne at the end of 2020 to start operating in the Asia Pacific region. With over 2,500 employees worldwide, the IT consultant looks to be moving to strengthen its local expertise.

BJSS has made several new hires, including Damian Coyne as the country manager for Australia. Other recent additions to the team include Arunath Kandasamy as the leader for AI and automation delivery, Simeon Lobo as the head of data and AI, and Alistair Wilkinson as the head of cloud transformation.

After working as head of business development since mid-2022, Damian Coyne joins Telstra Purple as the national manager for Australia. He has three years of experience leading growth and strategy at Versent. Prior to Contino's own big acquisition by Cognizant, he served as director of partnerships for Asia Pacific at the company. He was also in charge of overseeing Victoria for Kloud, another acquisition by Telstra.

Simeon Lobo, who previously worked with Coyne twice, has joined Coyne as head of data and AI, based in Sydney. Lobo has worked at Versent for the past four and a half years as director of data and insights and principal advisor, after spending one year at Contino. I have worked at Spark New Zealand and Optus for 10 years, and I was a managing consultant at Atos for 3 years.

Another brief coworker of Coyne's, Alistair Wilkinson, has joined BJSS from IBM as head of cloud transformation. Wilkinson returned to IBM after working at the multinational technology company for over fifteen years. He had also spent almost five years at SxiQ, which was later acquired by IBM. During his time at SxiQ, he was responsible for managing the company's solution design practice. Between positions at IBM and SxiQ, he worked for Telstra in a cloud capacity.

After spending eight years touring the Big Four, including his most recent position at KPMG managing the launch of their generative AI tool Kymchat, Arunath Kandasamy joined BJSS as lead for AI delivery in Sydney. He started working in ICT at Accenture in Kuala Lumpur. After that, he worked at EY in Malaysia for five years. He took a short break to work at PwC in Sydney.
