Cherie O’Riordan will succeed the retiring Brem Hill in January.

By Keonia Swift 11 minute read

IT company Data#3 has appointed a senior financial executive from ASX-listed engineering specialist Cardno to take over as chief financial officer.

Cherie O’Riordan is currently the chief financial officer of Cardno and previously worked at hospitality equipment financier Silver Chef as financial controller, as well as at Watpac Limited, Wilmar Gavilon, and Lincoln Scott in various finance and accounting roles.

Data#3 chief executive officer Laurence Baynham was delighted Ms O’Riordan was joining the senior leadership team after a comprehensive candidate search and selection process.


“Cherie brings a solid track record of financial and strategic business leadership along with strong experience in governance, compliance, and complex project delivery,” he said.

“We are confident she will contribute significantly to the continued growth and success of Data#3.”

Ms O’Riordan has over 20 years’ experience in corporate accounting across several industries and ASX-listed businesses.

She has a bachelor of economics from the University of Queensland, a diploma from Monash University, and is a graduate of the Australian Institute of Company Directors.

She replaces Brem Hill, who leaves the Brisbane-based company after 32 years. He joined in December 1991 after spells with IBM Australia and the Royal Bank of Scotland.

To facilitate a smooth transition, Ms O’Riordan will commence on January 30.

Data#3 Limited was established in 1977 and has grown into a team of more than 1,200 specialists across Australia and Fiji.

The technology service was HP’s revenue and power services partner before winning this year’s HP Service Partner of the Year award.

Data#3 chief customer officer John Tan congratulated both the Data#3 and HP teams on their “well-deserved” accolades.
