Global Head of Operations
Owen strives to ensure Fjord delivers efficient commercial performance that creates space for our people to grow their talents – and their careers.
The breadth of Owen’s twenty-plus years’ experience – in very large organizations like ExxonMobil and in small businesses like EnQii – underpins his steadfast support of Fjord’s ongoing integration within Accenture. During his time at Fjord, he’s also been responsible for successfully bringing other Accenture acquisitions under the Fjord umbrella. These experiences have reinforced his belief that finance and operations cannot simply be about numbers and processes, but must be centered on people. He firmly believes that the best finance and operational people have a deep understanding of the business and their colleagues, and of what those colleagues should expect from the business.
Having been born in Sydney, raised in Hong Kong, and lived and worked in London and New York, Owen has global experience that uniquely equips him to respond to the demands of Fjord’s increasingly wide-reaching business. He has lived in New York for the past ten years, where he can be found goal-keeping for his five-a-side soccer team on Wednesday nights, or entertaining friends with delights from the grill.
And in case he gets too relaxed, his three-year-old constantly reminds him of the most important question to ask in business: “Why?”
