For a high level management executive, it may come as a surprise that Fiona Rankin’s early beginnings started on a sheep station in New South Wales near a town called Goodooga. However, Rankin has since gone on to build an exciting and diverse career, boosting her academic credentials along the way.
She graduated with a Bachelor of Economics in 1993 and a Graduate Diploma in Financial Management, Finance/ Accounting (both from the University of New England), before completing a Masters in Business & IT Management at UTS in 2000.
“I always feel humbled when I meet UTS students. Seeing the intellectual capital, energy and innovation they invest in their projects ... is inspiring and rewarding.”
Rankin has 20 years of technology and executive management in the financial services under her belt, including Chief Information Officer at RESIMAC Limited, Principal Consultant at Curious Developments, and her current role as Chief Information Officer at New South Wales Treasury Corporation – the central borrowing authority for the State of New South Wales, known as TCorp – which she has held since July 2010.
“My role is to harness technology to deliver business outcomes. Essentially, I manage, optimise and drive technology strategy to administer and provide information on a balance sheet of more than $73bn, a $45bn debt management portfolio, and $8bn in funds management operations.”
Rankin remains connected to UTS through her role as a member of the Faculty of Engineering and IT’s Industry Advisory Network (IAN). “I always feel humbled when I meet UTS students. Seeing the intellectual capital, energy and innovation they invest in their projects and work (which is so important to society and business) is inspiring and rewarding.”
