A few months after announcing that it was splashing out on acquiring three service providers for $30 million, managed services and cloud provider AUCloud has made broad changes to its leadership makeup.

Several of its new-look executive layer come from the acquired companies. David Milin, the founder of PCG Cyber (one of the acquisitions), now leads AUCloud’s cyber security division, offering his two decades of expertise in IT governance, risk management, and cyber security consulting.

Additionally, Geoff Hughes, the founder of Venn IT Solutions, steps into the role of General Manager for South Australia and Queensland (the same markets that Venn IT serviced prior to its own acquisition).

Meanwhile, Joshua Mann had been appointed as the new Chief Operating Officer, having previously been an external advisor to the Group. He brings over 20 years of experience in scaling high-growth tech and service companies, and has previous experience in cyber security as well.

Theo Tragoudistakis has also had a promotion. He joined AUCloud in 2023 and is now the company’s CFO.

“Following the acquisition of three strategically aligned businesses, we have established a new leadership team that will lead the broadening of AUCloud’s range of products and services, revenue streams, and geographical reach,” AUCloud CEO and Managing Director Peter Maloney said in a release.

“In an ever-expanding sector of data management and security, AUCloud draws on our leaders’ expertise to offer top-tier solutions. With Australia facing escalating concerns over data sovereignty, privacy, and cyber attacks every six minutes, we’re here to help protect and support our nation’s organisations and governments.”

Overall, these new leadership appointments mean that more than half of the executive team reporting to Maloney are newly appointed to the executive team. This will give AUCloud a fresh new approach to market as Australia looks to a strong channel opportunity ahead.

With these changes, Maloney is confident that AUCloud is poised to address the growing challenges in cyber security and, as a sovereign cloud provider, help to assure the resilience of Australia’s national digital infrastructure.
