Hoang Nguyen, former director, digital and engineering at Appscore and executive director of engineering at CHE Proximity, has joined Howatson+Company as chief data and technology officer.
Chris Howatson commented: “If you’ve met Hoang, you’ll have felt his contagious passion for the technology and data underpinning today’s best digital utilities. At the age of 12, he was the youngest person to have received professional certification from Microsoft, an award and software patent by the World Intellectual Property Organisation (a specialised agency of the United Nations). Ask him what he built – it’s a great story!
“In many agencies, data and tech are siloed as two different practices. We know great experience requires both data and technology as intertwined enablers, live and constantly talking to and responding to each other. Hoang joins us with a remit to expand our technology offering and has already made an incredible impact to our clients, especially in the areas of data privacy, security and marketing technology.”
Hoang added: “I was attracted to Howatson+Company for its focus on people, its entrepreneurial spirit and the opportunity to create. No other place could offer the fusion between creativity and technology, design for humans and the machine. I’m excited to bring data and technology together, especially as privacy management becomes critical in meeting compliance requirements and managing brand reputation.”
Before joining Howatson+Company, Hoang led teams and designed architectures for several blue-chip enterprises such as NAB and ANZ, Samsung, Telstra, and many financial and technology startups.
