Protegic appoints its first CFO
Rod Fay, a chartered accountant with considerable experience in large organisations, is Protegic's new chief financial officer (CFO) and company secretary.
Mr Fay began his career with Touche Ross in the field of audit, but quickly became passionate about small to medium businesses and joined a boutique chartered firm in Collins St, Melbourne. He soon qualified as a chartered accountant and registered tax agent. In more recent years Mr Fay was CEO of a private hospital group, and accountant of a private school with over 300 staff and more than $30 million turnover.
"The new financial year brings with it a new and innovative business strategy and senior consulting partner positions for Protegic, which will help deliver stronger partnerships with clients," Mr Fay said.
Protegic CEO, David Thompson, said, "I am delighted that Rod is joining our executive management team as CFO. He is well qualified over a number of industries and brings to the company more than 25 years of business experience, with a dedication to the ethos of continuous improvement."
Protegic is a leader in ICT project management, providing both delivery and advisory services throughout Australia and Asia Pacific.
"In a relatively short period of time, Protegic has performed exceptionally well in establishing itself as a leader in project management with a blue chip clientele and an expanding geographic base,” said Mr Thompson.

I’m dating myself, but I remember when holiday shopping involved pouring through ads in the Sunday paper, placing actual phone calls from tethered land lines to research product stock and availability, and actually driving places to pick things up. Now, holiday shoppers can do all of that from a smartphone or tablet in a few seconds, but there are some security pitfalls to be aware of.
