John Sutherland

CIO at Ramsay Health (#1 in CIO50 2020 awards)

I am an Information Technology Executive with experience delivering strategic initiatives in large and complex international corporations. My leadership style is both hands-on and authentic, with emotional intelligence underpinning my communication style. I am experienced in interacting at the C-level and am comfortable working with the Board.

With over 25 years’ experience working both in Australia and the United Kingdom, I have held various roles across a range of industries. These include aerospace, mining, construction and engineering, manufacturing and distribution, telecommunications, retail, government, life sciences and most recently, medical technology and health care. I am currently an advisor to the Board of the Australian Government’s peak e-health organisation, the Australian Digital Health Agency. I lecture to final-year undergraduate and postgraduate students at Macquarie University.
