Statement on Kate Pounder

On behalf of the Albanese government, I place on record my thanks and appreciation for Kate Pounder’s tireless advocacy on behalf of the tech sector following news of her resignation as CEO of the Tech Council.

Over her three years as CEO, Kate’s leadership helped elevate and illuminate the vital role our tech sector plays in our economy and society.

Her ability to unify the sector around common goals was best demonstrated by her influential role in our government’s decision to set a target of 1.2 million tech-related jobs by 2030.

I wish her and her family well for the future.
