Former WhiteGrey Sydney boss Andrew Davenport to lead digital consultancy Valtech

Andrew Davenport, formerly WhiteGrey’s Sydney boss, has been appointed as Australian managing director for European digital transformation consultancy, Valtech.

Davenport, who left WhiteGrey last month, replaces Chris Flintoft who became Valtech’s Australian chief when the Paris based company acquired his Sydney based technology startup Neon Stingray in 2014.

In his new role, Davenport will lead the consultancy’s 50-strong Australian team from Sydney and will be responsible for growing the consultancy’s Australian business which include TAL, Ruralco and Foxtel.

Davenport said in a media statement: “Valtech is a global organisation with offices in 16 countries and an impressive client list of many of the world’s leading brands so the opportunity to come on board to lead the Australian operations was a no-brainer.”

“The company has achieved incredible success in other markets and I’m looking forward to the challenge of driving the Australian operations forward and being a major contributor to this overall success.”

“There are not many operators out there with the same level of experience and understanding of the digital market as Andrew, so securing him as our new Australian MD is a major win for Valtech,” said Henri Petitet, Regional Director of Valtech APAC. “His appointment certainly bolsters our capabilities in Australia as we look to grow our footprint in the Asia Pacific region.”
