Stockland makes new marketing, innovation, technology appointment

Replacement announced for Robyn Elliott

Stockland announced Sharmila Tsourdalakis will be joining the property giant in the role of chief innovation, marketing and technology officer (CIMTO).

Tsourdalakis takes the role after the departure of Robyn Elliott earlier this month. Elliott, who had been its chief innovation, marketing and technology officer, resigned after an 18-month stint. Stockland’s GM of marketing, Ben Allen, had been reporting directly into Elliott and his role remains unchanged, a spokesperson said earlier in the month.

Tsourdalakis previously held the role of executive general manager of banking and wealth technology at Suncorp. Prior to this, she was CIO of the GPT Group, and group manager at Leighton.

Stockland managing director and CEO, Mark Steinert, said he was delighted to welcome Tsourdalakis to Stockland to lead the innovation, marketing, technology and customer teams as a member of the executive committee.

“Sharmila brings over 20 years’ experience working in senior roles in technology, innovation, customer and digital transformation for ASX-listed companies, including Suncorp, GPT and Leighton Contractors,” he said.

“Sharmila has led a number of large-scale digital and customer-centric transformations, including the implementation and optimisation of complex technology platforms, aligning with Stockland’s focus on upgrading our systems to increase customer service, business efficiency and embrace digital opportunities. 

“Investing in technology, innovation, customer experience and data capability is an important priority for Stockland, as we position our business for the future, turning disruption into business opportunities and driving additional income streams. 

“We are excited Sharmila is joining Stockland, bringing a combination of strong real estate sector experience, shared values and passion for technology, customer focus and innovation.” 

The appointment will commence on 27 April 2020. Stockland GM of marketing, Ben Allen, will report directly into Tsourdalakis.

Marketing prowess versus the enigma of the metaverse

Flash back to the classic film, Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory. Television-obsessed Mike insists on becoming the first person to be ‘sent by Wonkavision’, dematerialising on one end, pixel by pixel, and materialising in another space. His cinematic dreams are realised thanks to rash decisions as he is shrunken down to fit the digital universe, followed by a trip to the taffy puller to return to normal size.

More than money talks in sports sponsorship

As a nation united by sport, brands are beginning to learn money alone won’t talk without aligned values and action. If recent events with major leagues and their players have shown us anything, it’s the next generation of athletes are standing by what they believe in – and they won’t let their values be superseded by money.
