2019 winners

Lex Greensill CBE

Alumnus of the Year
Faculty of Law Outstanding Alumni Award winner

Lex Greensill, founder and CEO of Greensill, has devoted his career to devising innovative solutions that give companies greater access to working capital.

Hailing from Bundaberg, and returning there regularly, Lex’s early life was spent on his family’s sugar cane farm where he learned first-hand how a business can be made or broken by the supply chains to which it belongs.

It is upon this intimate knowledge of the global supply network that Lex founded Greensill in 2011 to build unique working capital solutions for its clients, from the smallest of suppliers to the largest multinationals.

Today, Greensill is a market-leading provider of working capital and supply chain finance solutions which have helped to fund everything from mobile phone handsets, to the purchase of passenger aircraft and the acquisition of hydro-electric power generation plants.

Lex built the company from the ground up. In just eight years it has grown to become a world leader in working capital finance with more than $60 billion extended to more than 8 million customers in over 165 countries (including tens of thousands located in Australia). The company is headquartered in London with offices in Sydney, Bundaberg, New York, Chicago, Miami, Frankfurt, Johannesburg, Singapore and more, with more than 400 specialists worldwide.

Greensill also owns Greensill Bank, based in Bremen Germany, and has billions of dollars of assets under management in a suite of supply chain finance funds managed by third parties. This financial solidity, coupled with the company’s proprietary technology and expertise, is the basis for Greensill’s clients’ success.

Prior to starting Greensill, Lex was Managing Director and Head of Supply Chain Finance for Europe, Middle East and Africa at Citibank, and established Morgan Stanley’s global supply chain finance business. Lex is a venture capitalist - backing several successful start-ups - and is a Solicitor of the Supreme Court of England and Wales and the Supreme Court of Queensland, Australia. His law background (completing his QUT degree by correspondence) has served him well in streamlining and simplifying legal processes related to global finance and trade operations.

Lex’s financing acumen and reputation has attracted global attention. He was appointed Crown Representative for Finance and advised British Prime Minister David Cameron’s government on the creation of a new UK supply chain finance scheme. He was also invited to the White House by USA President Obama to provide expert opinion on the potential relevance of supply chain finance for the US market, at a time when the traditional banking system and regulatory capital constraints were hindering the provision of funding.

In 2017, Lex was appointed a Commander of the British Empire (CBE) for services to the British economy in recognition of his pioneering and disrupting approach to financial services and Greensill’s tireless efforts to unlock capital for global clients to put to work.

TANDA - Josh Cameron, Alex Ghiculescu, Jake Phillpot, Tasmin Trezise

Young Alumni of the Year

In 2012, four QUT students frustrated with the unnecessary complexity and bureaucracy involved in managing timesheets, rosters, leave and payroll systems in the QUT Student Guild combined their talents to form TANDA, the number one ‘time and attendance’ software platform for labour insights and workforce success.

In eight short years, TANDA has grown from a small self-funded start-up to a global company employing over 140 staff, with offices in Brisbane, Chicago, London and Manila and a $20 million annual turnover. TANDA is now used by over 5,000 companies and 30,000 employees across a range of industries including accommodation, care services, hospitality and fast food, transport and logistics, manufacturing, warehousing, medical and retail. Dominos, Bunnings Warehouse, Boost Juice, Telstra, Australia Post, KBZ Bank, Tesco and Manchester City Council are just some of their high profile clients.

TANDA’s four co-founders each bring unique and complimentary skills and expertise to the fore: IT-whizz and platform architect, Alex Ghiculescu, created the software and manages product development; business/law graduate, Josh Cameron, is responsible for developing new commercial strategies to extend TANDA’s global footprint; while fellow business alumni, Jake Phillpot and Tasmin Trezise, manage the end-to-end customer journey, strategy development and marketing.

After developing and implementing the system across all businesses managed by the Student Guild in 2012, and realising the market potential the TANDA team sought to work with Interport Cargo, a local logistic company to refine and improve their product. By June 2013 they had signed on their first customer and the following year TANDA took out first prize at QUT’s bluebox Challenge for early stage start-ups. With strategic oversight from experienced Chair and Board Advisor, John Puttick, the company started to expand exponentially and went on to win the ANZ Made in Brisbane Award for High-Growth Start-ups at the 2014 Lord Mayor’s Business Awards. In 2018, TANDA was named one of LinkedIn’s top 25 sought after Australian Start-ups.

Never resting on their laurels, the co-founders dedicate time to identifying and understanding the workforce management and human capital needs of businesses in the global context, meeting with business owners, other SaaS (software as a service) providers, academics and employees to refine and tailor their product and services to the ever changing nature of the global workforce.

The TANDA team maintains close connections to QUT and the local start-up community. They regularly facilitate, sponsor and judge pitch nights and hackathons, conduct guest lectures, speak at technology and human capital management events internationally, and provide internships and full-time employment to countless students and alumni. In July TANDA delivered its Workforce Success Platform Conference in Brisbane attracting over 250 attendees and 40 renowned speakers.

Alex, Josh, Jake and Tasmin typify the tenacity, resilience, leadership, ambition and collaborative approach of successful start-up founders. With their strong customer-centric mindset, entrepreneurial flair and shared vision to help businesses succeed they have been true ambassadors of QUT’s real world brand.

The Honourable Karen Andrews MP

Science and Engineering Faculty Outstanding Alumni Award winner

Karen Andrews has been a trailblazer and champion of STEM - science, technology, engineering and maths - her entire life. Graduating from the then QIT in 1983 as one of the first two female mechanical engineers, Karen forged her early career on power stations and petrochemical sites in regional Queensland before moving to Victoria to work in the oil industry. The first female and youngest plant engineer on the company site, she supervised teams of fitters, electricians, drivers and store workers. These early supervisory roles peaked her interest in industrial relations which would eventually see her establish her own Human Resources and Industrial Relations Consultancy where she continued to use her methodical and process-oriented approach to decisions, projects and goals. Not one to shy away from career shifts, and with a desire to effect real change in the education, economic and business landscape, in 2010 Karen turned her attention to a career in politics becoming the Member for McPherson. She soon set about applying her skills to a range of roles including Chair of the House of Representatives’ Joint Standing Committee on Public Works, Assistant Minister for Science, and Assistant Minister for Vocational Education and Skills. Taking a bipartisan approach to addressing Australia’s future skill requirements she established the Parliamentary Friends of Science in September 2012 with the Hon Richard Marles MP and worked with stakeholders and her peers to help establish the $1.1 billion National Innovation and Science Agenda in 2015. In 2018 she was appointed Minister for Industry, Science and Technology – Queensland’s first female Federal Cabinet Minister and one of only a few handful of engineers to have reached this level of Australian politics. Karen’s portfolio focuses on economic transformation and boosting business competiveness and job creation through science, innovation and investment. To ensure Australia’s readiness to innovate and prosper in the future a new $6.2 million schools-based STEM program to be delivered by Questacon, the National Science and Technology Centre, will be rolled out over the next three years delivering workshops and resources to 1,000 teachers and 500 schools across the states and territories. Recognised by Engineers Australia as one of Australia’s influential women in engineering, The Honourable Karen Andrews MP remains a passionate advocate, leader and role model for education, science and innovation.

Norman Hunter OAM

Faculty of Education Outstanding Alumni Award winner

In a distinguished career spanning over 50 years as a teacher, principal, educational consultant and sector leader, Norm Hunter has gained a reputation as one of Queensland and Australia’s most influential and progressive educators.

His diverse career includes serving stints in the Australian Army Education Corps Pacific Islands Regiment in Papua New Guinea during his National Service, primary school teaching, and 14 years as a secondary school educator at the Anglican Church Grammar School (Churchie).

Norm is best known as the founding Co-Principal, then Principal, of Hillbrook Anglican School. Over a period of 21 years, Norm led the establishment of an innovative school that challenged orthodoxies about education and school governance. Hillbrook developed a ground-breaking philosophy centred on the inclusion and active involvement of teachers, parents and students in all facets of its operation and teaching program – a story later captured in Norm’s book If We Build It They Will Come. It is also believed to be the first school in Queensland to establish a crèche for staff enabling the continued employment of many women teachers with young children.

Following his teaching days, Norm became a much sought after education and policy consultant. He has conducted independent program assessments and evaluations for the Queensland Studies Authority, Independent Schools Queensland, Brisbane North Catholic Education and Ministerial Advisory Committees. He has convened school and system workshops on the Leadership Capability Framework of the Australian Council for Educational Leaders (ACEL), assisted school boards with principal appointments, worked with aboriginal assistant teachers in the Northern Territory, and continues to work with school leadership teams and aspiring educators from all three education sectors.

Norm has presented keynote addresses at state, national and international education conferences, and is an external member of the Department of Education and Training School Improvement Unit conducting quadrennial reviews of state schools. He also worked with Toowoomba Catholic Schools in establishing their school renewal and improvement process.

A passionate educator, Norm’s contribution to the education sector has been recognised by a Medal of the Order of Australia, the Australian College of Educators’ Biennial Queensland Medal, an ACEL Queensland Excellence in Educational Leadership Award and the ACEL National Nganakarrawa Award for ‘leadership with wisdom and depth’.
Norm chairs the Nature Play Queensland Advisory Committee and is a member of the Financial Basics for Young People Board.
