Indara appoints Tanya Whiteing as CIO
Wed, 12th Jul 2023

Indara Digital Infrastructure, a dominant player in Australia's digital infrastructure space, announced today that Tanya Whiteing will assume the role of Chief Information Officer (CIO). This appointment comes as the company continues to bolster its technological competencies to match its growth plans.

Whiteing, an industry veteran with over three decades of experience, is tasked with fortifying Indara's tech capabilities, aligning them with the company's growth ambitions. This step comes as the company further expands to cater to the growing demand for speedy and reliable digital connectivity.

CEO Cameron Evans commented on Whiteing's appointment, stating, "Technology and IT are key enablers of our strategy and critical to achieving our growth ambitions. Tanya brings a wealth of experience from previous CIO roles, consulting, and shares our forward-looking vision."

Indara has seen considerable expansion recently, largely due to the integration of Axicom and Australian Tower Network and the acquisition of ENE.HUB and HUB. As CIO, Whiteing is to steer the company's tech strategy and grow future capability. Her prime responsibilities include transitioning various platforms to a unified digital approach under the Indara umbrella. She will also enhance the company's existing tech enablement processes, ranging from apps to business intelligence and operational systems.

Reflecting on her new role, Whiteing says, "The need for better, faster, more reliable connection will only grow, and Indara truly understands how important it is that communities across Australia have access to this. I’m excited to be joining an organisation as bold, forward-looking, and innovative as Indara."

Whiteing's proven technological proficiency spans corporate and consultancy sectors. She formerly served as the CIO of construction materials supplier Boral and as the Business & Technology Services Director for food manufacturer George Weston Foods. Her consulting career includes stints at esteemed firms like Deloitte and Accenture.

Whiteing's appointment is the latest in Indara's series of milestones, which last year included the acquisition of smart street furniture providers, ENE.HUB and HUB. This acquisition strengthens Indara's vision of being Australia's foremost digital connectivity provider.
