Sonia brings with her over three decades of experience across a diverse set of industries such as consulting, technology, banking, retail and travel.

“With big data, AI, IoT, cloud and cyber security playing an increasingly significant role in our day-to-day lives, businesses need trusted partners with the experience, capability and creativity to harness the full power of digital and embed resiliency, optimisation and continuous innovation into their organizations,” Eland said.
HCLTech has been operating in Australia and New Zealand for over two decades. This year, the company extended its partnerships with ANZ Bank, Cricket Australia, and agribusiness firm Elders.
