Service Stream CIO departs for UXC
Craig Wishart.

Former utilities chief tasked with integration of acquired IT businesses.

Service Stream CIO Craig Wishart has left the utilities provider for a similar role with IT solutions company UXC.

Wishart spent two and a half years at Service Stream, during which time he completed a range of projects including a major refresh of the company's desktop and standard operating environment, a rationalisation of the company's software applications, the development of a mobility strategy and deployment of a new ticketing system.

Wishart also lead the deployment of Service Stream’s eSSential Platform - a workforce management platform for technicians in field, delivered via tablet computers.

Wishart received a nomination in last year’s iTnews Benchmark Awards for the project.

He worked his last day at Service Stream late last month, and began his new role as group chief information officer and chief technology officer for UXC soon afterwards.

UXC, one of Australia’s largest IT integrators, services over 2500 clients across the globe and is listed on the Australian Stock Exchange.

Part of Wishart’s remit will be dealing with the myriad of disparate systems UXC has take on as a result of its recent run of acquisitions. The integrator purchased five companies in the 2014 financial year alone.

His overall responsibility will be for the UXC group’s IT strategy, policies and programs.  

Wishart has previous experience at service providers including roles at Telstra and Sensis.

Service Stream is yet to appoint a permanent replacement for Wishart. The company's head of business systems and solutions Harry Wilson is currently serving as acting CIO.
