Geoff Stalley, Chief Growth Officer

As our Chief Growth Officer, Geoff is the newest member of the Serco AsPac Executive Management Team (EMT) and our 2020 graduates will have exposure to the exciting things happening in Geoff’s portfolio and under his leadership. 

Joining Serco early in 2019 and formerly a senior partner at Deloitte where he was responsible for commercialising new ideas as part of a global innovation team, Geoff’s expertise spans corporate innovation and growth, business strategy and execution, merger integration and major transformational change as well as operational management and creating or shaping the ‘go to market’ activities of businesses. He is a non-executive director for iSelect, Chair of a not for profit, Uplifting Australia, and a mentor to various start-ups at Stone & Chalk.  

Why do you choose to work at Serco? 

In initially getting to know Serco as part of my own due diligence, I was continually impressed by the pride and determination of the team to always bring their best to help a customer address complex people services issues and to deliver value to the community. Digital disruption is widespread and creates opportunities for businesses like Serco and this, together with the quality of the existing business and the commitment and care of the leaders right across the business, compelled me to join and help drive our growth agenda.     

What’s the focus of your role? What’s your purpose, what motivates you? 

My role is to help create and convert new opportunities into ongoing business for Serco across all of our businesses and geographies in ASPAC. This involves understanding and researching the market, working closely with our customer to understand their needs, developing ideas into solutions and turning these into compelling and differentiated propositions. Every customer is unique and every issue can be solved in a manner that creates real value and I am motivated to lead a team that delivers on this every day.  And in the context of a global organisation, the opportunity to work alongside and learn from an extensive, collaborative and diverse mix of people with rich experiences and incredible smarts is just so appealing. 

In what ways do you consider your work to be meaningful and making a difference? 

I never underestimate the value we bring in helping the general public access services that make their lives better, whether it for our work in hospitals, national disability or alternative justice, or for the confidence that we provide to the wider community through our immigration, defence and justice work.    

Why would you commend Serco to graduates? 

Serco is an amazing opportunity for graduates to not only be part of a global organisation that has a long history, but also to be part of defining, developing and delivering technology and services to enable our customers to better meet the needs of the communities we serve in evolving and often innovative ways. And you’ll do this inside a great team environment that supports you growing as a person and a leader and with the many ways for you to build your career.
