Erin-Walsh

Erin Walsh, Director

Erin has 25 years’ experience in Management and Commercial Roles in the telco and information technology sector. Focusing on solving business problems with diverse technology solutions, she has worked with clients across multiple sectors including mining, transport, retail, utilities and State and Local Government 

Managing and promoting business change due to technology improvements has been a constant throughout her career, but none more so than now where the rate of change and digital disruption has accelerated dramatically. Customers have greater market and environmental awareness, and their expectations of businesses to trade 24/7 and be location agnostic, have permanently changed the economic landscape. 

Erin is proud to represent Telstra as a founding member of the IMA and looks forward to contributing to the development of sustainable, reliable and commercially viable global solutions for microgrids, and the resultant customer benefits.
