Coal seam gas firm Arrow Energy has enticed former APAC IT general manager for global miner Vale to head up its own technology operations as CIO.
Huw Davies began his new role on Monday this week, reporting into Arrow Energy chief financial officer Guo Xuyang.
Davies has 20 years experience in the IT industry across Australia and the UK, most recently as Vale's IT general manager for the Asia Pacific.
The company was specifically looking for a CIO with experience in the oil and gas or resources sectors, along with experience in all that is involved in managing end user computing and IT infrastructure.
It's also invested in automation technology to operate gas extraction in remote fields from a location in the Brisbane CBD.
