Infoxchange Appoints New CEO
Tuesday, 7th February 2012 at 9:33 am
Peter Walton has been appointed as the new chief executive of Infoxchange

Australian Not for Profit technology provider, Infoxchange, has appointed Peter Walton to the role of chief executive.

Walton joins the organisation after 20 years service in multi-sector community development organisations in both the Not for Profit and private sectors.

Infoxchange chairman, Lee Wapling, said that Walton was a highly respected, global social enterprise worker, who will bring fresh, strategic insight and decades of knowledge to the organisation.

“Peter joins Infoxchange at a time when the digital economy is one Australia’s fastest growing sectors. With his guidance we hope to take advantage of new opportunities that allow us to continue to bridge the digital divide,” Wapling said.

Wapling said Mr Walton’s personal expertise in areas of social justice and development are particularly relevant to Infoxchange as the organisation works to ensure digital inclusion remains high on the national agenda.

Walton’s experience includes Director of Programs at Save the Children, where he oversaw $35 million of projects, and he was manager of social and economic development operations in Mekong, Vietnam for ChildFund Australia.

Of his new appointment, Walton said: “I’m excited to be a part of this vibrant organisation because I believe technology is a key driver in today’s society both economically and socially. We’re in the midst of a new era, where access to technology has the ability to change lives. Infoxchange will continue to play an important role in this evolution.”

Walton commences his new role today and replaces Infoxchange founder Andrew Mahar, who steps down from an operational role this month.
