Susan Alexander – Executive Member
Susan Alexander FAIM MAICD BA(Hons) MCogSci MLS is an independent consulting professional and executive educator specialising in strategic thinking and planning, negotiating, research & analysis, rogue project ‘rescues’ and leadership development.
Susan is uniquely qualified in her consulting specialties and has built a reputation as “the consultant’s consultant”. Before founding Susan Alexander & Associates in 2001, she spent 15 years at senior executive level in professional services firms as a Practice Manager, Sales & Marketing Director and Operations Manager. Her knowledge, skills and experience are first rate and she knows how to transfer them to others.
As an executive, Susan was responsible for strategic direction, P&L, JVs and alliances, contract negotiations, product and service innovation, new markets and CRM. The nature of the senior executive positions she held across Asia Pacific (at Digital Services Division, Compaq Services, IBM Global Services and Ernst & Young Management Consulting) means she knows first-hand what drives the corporate and government sectors and she is also well versed in the hoops their suppliers have to jump through. She understands B2B, B2C and B2G very well.
Susan’s academic credentials are equally impressive. She holds postgraduate degrees across three disciplines: Sociology, Cognitive Science and Law. Both theoretically and practically she understands how organisations and individuals create context and meaning for work; how they individually and jointly approach problem solving; and how they create and exploit what they know and do – all of which impacts upon an organisation’s performance.
Susan is a Fellow of the Australian Institute of Management, a Member of the Australian Institute of Company Directors, a Member of the St James Ethics Centre and a Member of the NSW Business Chamber. She is currently completing her Juris Doctor degree.
