Sharon Doyle, partner at Clairfield International in Australia, was appointed non-executive director of TechnologyOne (ASX:TNE), Australia’s largest enterprise software-as-a-service company.
In announcing the appointment, Adrian Di Marco, executive chairman of TechnologyOne, emphasized the experience and insights Sharon will bring to the company. As a former vice president of strategic planning and Implementation at Mincom, one of Australia’s most successful enterprise software companies, Sharon advised on strategy development, led the implementation of key initiatives and drove sales and change programs across the company. She also led the negotiations on major transactions for international clients and was responsible for global merger and acquisition activities.
In her current role as the managing director and majority owner of the Clairfield International partner in Australia, InterFinancial Corporate Finance Limited, she has successfully navigated technology companies through the challenges of steep global growth curves, with a strong understanding of the dynamics in software-as-a-service (SaaS), which is a critical area of growth for TechnologyOne, Adrian Di Marco said.
Sharon’s leadership of InterFinancial has seen her develop a core practice providing strategic advice for technology and other IP rich, high-growth companies. She also has extensive international experience managing merger, acquisition and private equity processes across the technology industry. She participates in the Technology, Media & Telecom practice at Clairfield International, which studies trends in the sector, publishes reports, and sponsors a robust knowledge base.
“I am honored to be joining the TechnologyOne Board and look forward to working with Mr. Di Marco and his board in making a substantial contribution to its global growth objectives,” Sharon said. “As an innovative enterprise software-as-a-service company that is listed in the ASX 200 and is valued at more than $1.5 billion, TechnologyOne is well positioned to leverage rapid global growth.”
Sharon Doyle holds current non-executive directorships with UnityWater and Starts at 60, and was a non-executive director of Social Investments Australia over two years. She holds a bachelor of laws (with honors) and bachelor of information technology (with distinction), from the Queensland University of Technology as well as a graduate diploma of business administration from the University of Queensland. She is a graduate of the Australian Institute of Company Directors and a member of the Australian Venture Capital and Private Equity Association.
