Mirvac shifts IT oversight under 'services' banner

Culls chief operating officer role.

Real estate group Mirvac is the latest firm to undergo an executive reshuffle that changes the internal reporting lines for the IT organisation.

The firm revealed in a financial filing (pdf) that it has created a new "group executive, services" role with diverse oversight responsibilities, including IT, human resources, health, safety, environment and sustainability.

The services role has been awarded to Brad Moore, formerly Mirvac's group general manager of human resources.

Mirvac's executive manager of IT — effectively its chief information officer — Shane Martin retains his IT organisation leadership position, but now reports up through Moore.

A Mirvac spokeswoman told iTnews that the IT organisation had previously reported up through chief operating officer Gary Flowers.

However, a major change in Mirvac's new executive line-up is the disbandment of the chief operating officer role.

"Key responsibilities pertaining to this position have been redistributed," the company said.

Flowers will not leave Mirvac. Instead, he has been given the role of group executive of business initiatives, which covers "strategic group corporate and commercial projects".

Mirvac is not alone in reshuffling IT reporting lines under a services banner.

Last week, listed concrete giant Boral brought IT responsibility under the umbrella of a new chief administrative officer role, which ultimately cuts across all corporate support functions.

However, Boral's restructure differed from Mirvac's in that the former culled its chief information officer role in the process.

Retailer Coles also underwent an executive reshuffle this week which impacted IT, though it did not change the reporting line for IT, which still goes via finance.
