At Certis Security Australia, he is the IT Operations and Information Security Manager, representing a link between business and IT functions. Together, James and Jonathan work on a range of projects to innovate and enhance aviation security. With new projects, technologies and systems, James identifies IT pain-points and uses his technological expertise to deploy industry leading security solutions for internal and external stakeholders. 

“Being able to collaborate with Jonathan and advise on industry leading security and IT solutions has provided incredible professional growth,” said James. Enhancing their teamwork and leadership, the dynamic duo has benefitted immensely from Certis’ mentoring and learning opportunities including courses on Design Thinking and the leading Seven Habits and Insights programmes. “The learning programmes really developed my capabilities as an individual in understanding where my skills fit into the wider business picture,” Jonathan explained. In reflecting upon his journey at Certis, James shared his pride in participating in learning programmes linked to his passion.
