Chris Seller was appointed to the role of Chief Information Officer (CIO) for Airservices in September 2016. Prior to joining Airservices, Chris held senior technology executive roles in companies such as Westpac and Qantas. This included two years as Jetstar’s first CIO as part of a 14-year career with the Qantas Group, during which he rose to become the flying kangaroo’s Chief Architect and Head of ICT Operations.

With 30 years of experience in the Information Technology industry, Chris has forged a career covering significant roles across technology strategy and transformation, infrastructure and operations, enterprise architecture, strategic sourcing, organisational change management, program management, and applications development with industry experience extending across financial services, aviation, commercial software development, and cartography.

Chris’ initial major focus area in his new role as CIO for Airservices will be to ensure we get the right technology systems and organisational structures in place to prepare for the changes occurring in the global air navigation services industry. This will include programs to exploit the value of our information assets, implement systems to drive greater interoperability with our partners and customers and to help realise and drive new business opportunities and services outcomes these changes will enable.
