Lloyd Bunting: Co-founder
Lloyd Bunting is an entrepreneur and investor in internet-based service delivery.
He has worked in IT since the 1970s - starting with machine-language coding in the supercomputers of the day before focusing on IT strategies and systems for large organisations. He has worked on internet strategy, design and service delivery since the late 1990s.
Over some 40 years Lloyd has planned, implemented or advised upon some 600 public and private sector projects. The projects have spanned corporate, business and technology strategy, government-wide or enterprise-wide management improvement, organisational top structure reviews business process reengineering and major capital projects. They have covered a diverse range of sectors from technology and property to new products and new ventures, in a global capex portfolio.
He has held executive management roles in the public and private sectors, including as a Chief Manager in the ANZ Bank and a senior executive in central agencies of the Federal government. He has also held senior consulting roles with a number of major global IT and consulting companies. These roles complement his experience as a founder of start-ups and small companies.
In 2005, clearly seeing the potential of Software as a Service (Saas) technologies for highly effective e-government, Lloyd designed a new business model for the delivery of government services into the community, established eGov Pty Ltd and built the end-to-end egrants.com online systems to implement the vision. More than 12,000 projects across Australia have been implemented through these systems since 2006.
Lloyd is an active investor in US-based technology stocks, and maintains a daily investment blog - portfolioticker.com - focused mainly on the global economic and political factors impacting on US tech stocks.
Lloyd also has a number of new web-based projects under development, including a web-based accounting system. These projects remain in private beta at present.
Lloyd holds degrees in accounting (BBus) and investment (MBA). He is a Foundation Fellow of the Australian Institute of Company Directors and until recently was a Fellow of CPA Australia.
