BART THOMAS

Director, Business Operations

Having worked for 25 years in the IT industry, Bart began his career in Canberra selling Apple computers to Federal Government. At one stage, he was the head of IT for the Australian Censorship Board within the Australian Federal Attorney-General’s Office.

During a ten year stint in London where he worked as an IT contractor, started a bar/restaurant and built an online retail business, Bart eventually saw an opportunity to start one of the earliest cloud computing companies in 2007. His successful exit from this business in 2011 saw him return to Australia to work with Macquarie Telecom’s Ninefold—a start-up seeking to steal a march on AWS. Recognising that no-one was going to steal a march on AWS, Bart led Anchor Cloud Hosting as CEO from 2013 until its sale in 2017.

Passionate about business, customer experience, people development and (some might say ironically) robotic process automation, Bart brings considerable experience to DX and firmly believes that DX’s only job is to make our customers more successful.
