The Department of Defence has appointed a new chief technology officer, nicking senior Toll IT executive Mohan Aiyaswami to replace its previous CTO Matt Yannopoulous, who left in October last year to take up the role of chief information officer at the Department of Immigration and Border Protection.

Not much information is available online about Aiyaswami, but the executive appears to have most recently held a position as general manager of Strategy & Architecture at integrated logistics company Toll Group. “Mr Mohan Aiyaswami has been appointed the position of Chief Technology Officer within the Chief Information Officer Group,” a spokesperson for Defence said this week. “Mohan will commence in the Chief Technology Officer position on 11 June 2014.”

The previous CTO of Defence was Matt Yannopoulous, who in the role led a group of 400 staff, setting IT strategy and architecture alongside overseeing some of Australia’s largest technology contracts. However, Yannopoulous resigned in August last year and joined the Department of Immigration and Border Protection as its chief information officer.

Defence only advertised the CTO role in February this year. At the time, the department said the CTO would would be “be responsible for strategic guidance and technical direction for Defence ICT and ensuring appropriate commercial arrangements are in place”. It added: “Specifically you will also have responsibility for: Defence ICT Strategy; Defence Enterprise Architecture; Defence ICT Security, and; Group Commercial functions within CIOG.”
