We are very pleased to announce Mal Everett has joined MAGIQ Software in the senior role of Cloud Solutions Architect. Mal will be responsible for the design and architecture of the MAGIQ Cloud.

Mal completed a Bachelor of Science at the University of Melbourne in Physics, Mathematics and Computer Science followed by a Graduate Diploma in Computer Science & Computer Engineering at RMIT. He has since carved a successful and interesting 30-year senior career within the Information Technology industry focusing on application development, solutions architecture and technical infrastructure delivery.

Mal has worked within both the public and private sectors for a number of high-profile organisations including RMIT University, The Royal Women’s Hospital and Telstra. During his four years at Telstra he was responsible for the architecture and management of the PABX National Fault Management system for Telstra’s more than 500 large corporate customers.

Prior to joining MAGIQ Software Mal held the role of Technical Director at Elmtree IT, a Managed IT Services business of which he was co-owner. Elmtree IT provided Technical Advisory Services, Application Management and Cloud Delivery services to a diverse range of clients including Hewlett Packard, Visy Industries, Melbourne Recital Centre, Victorian State Orchestra, Australian Ballet and several of the Melbourne-based AFL Clubs. After 22 years of operation that saw the business grow from 3 to 25 staff, the business was successfully sold in 2016.

“The delivery of MAGIQ Cloud is a very exciting strategic initiative that we have been working to design our products for over the past five or six years. We want to introduce MAGIQ Cloud to allow our customers to move to native Cloud delivery of their MAGIQ Systems; and take advantage of all the associated business benefits such as anytime, anywhere access; improved scalability and business continuity, and deployment cost reductions. And continue to enjoy the simplicity of working with a single, trusted vendor,” said Colin Lillywhite, Chief Executive Officer, MAGIQ Software.

“We’re now ready to take the step to Cloud deployment and we are delighted to have someone of Mal’s experience and caliber join the Company to help architect and guide our Cloud vision,” said Colin.

Mal is a passionate, senior technical systems architect and says his real motivation lies in finding the best ways to help people make technology work for them and their organisations.

“I’m really excited by the opportunity to join the Company and lead the introduction of MAGIQ Cloud across our Software Platforms. MAGIQ Software has built a strong reputation for delivering great products and MAGIQ Cloud is another important step towards helping our customers take best advantage of future technologies,” said Mal.

In his spare time Mal enjoys long distance running and has completed a number of half-marathons including the annual Melbourne half-marathon. He is also an accomplished Irish Fiddle player and can often be seen busking of a Sunday afternoon on the city streets of Melbourne.
