Alan is Chief Executive Officer for BlinkMobile and was the original product architect of the Blink Mobility Platform. A technologist at heart, Alan still sets the future vision for BlinkMobile’s product development as it expands from process-driven mobile solutions, to a more expansive solution set that harnesses allied technologies like IoT within contextual and event-driven solutions.

In the late 1990s his Australian-based TIBCO development group wrote a participant trading system for the then-new Energy Trading Market that over 50% of Australia’s power was traded on.
Before TIBCO Alan started and managed the expansion of trading room infrastructure company Teknekron Software Systems around Australia and Asia prior to their purchase by Reuters. He opened offices around the region and was responsible for the successful implementations of the trading software architecture for many large trading floors including those of NAB, HSBC and Chase Manhattan.
