New South Melbourne office will boost local economy by employing 100 new staff

7 April, 2016 – Victoria’s Minister for Small Business, Innovation and Trade, Hon Philip Dalidakis, has officially opened Datacom’s third Victorian office in South Melbourne, a reflection of the IT services company’s extensive growth in the region.

“We’re delighted to expand our footprint in Victoria, which is a thriving part of Datacom. We’d like to thank Minister Dalidakis and are proud to be working with the Victorian government and local business to help create jobs by transforming local business through the power of IT. We think globally, and work locally to help produce an innovation economy in Victoria and across Australia,” said Datacom Group CEO, Jonathan Ladd.

The new South Melbourne office will employ an additional 100 local staff over the coming 12 months, covering software solutions and app development, Cloud consulting and professional services. 

“The opening of Datacom Systems’ new South Melbourne office comes hot on the heels of a host of major investments by Australian and global tech companies that are boosting Victoria’s reputation as the number one tech destination in the Asia Pacific region,” Minister Dalidakis said.

“The Andrews Labor Government is excited to work with companies like Datacom as Victoria’s booming tech sector spurs our transition to new industries and new jobs.”

Victoria’s tech industry now generates more than $34 billion in annual revenue and employs more than 91,300 people. Datacom is proud to be a vibrant part of the sector’s regional growth.

“I am especially proud of the team we have assembled in Victoria. Our success is in no small part due to their hard work and expertise. We will continue to grow by focusing on the state government sector, and across the banking and financial services industries, health, transport and logistics. Victoria is a great place to do business, and we thank the state government for their support,” said Scott Green, Director, Datacom Systems Victoria.
