About the Contributor

Russell Burns

In an economy and industry that will continue to evolve through successive waves of disruptive change I am most excited about making a quantifiable difference to the success of individuals, teams, and organisations through the considered application of technology.

The opportunity for growth facing organisations across APAC is immense and the challenges very real. Those that outperform their peers are able to apply globally proven changes to people, systems, and processes to level the playing field and focus their resources on sustained improvement and innovation as opposed to manual or outdated practices.

My focus is to build the case for change at the confluence of Tax, Finance, IT, with the goal of reducing risk, enabling growth, and transforming functions. Outside of that I’m a very new and very proud father to my son Edward, and can occasionally be found clearing my thoughts with the aid of a classic motorcycle and a quiet road or any chance I can get to go sailing.
