16th May 2022, Sydney Australia: Bill Wong joins PX Partners today as a Practitioner and Principal to lead technology innovation and partnerships. This senior appointment adds further capability to meet the growing client appetite for support from real life practitioners rather than career consultants.

Most recently, as an Executive Manager, Portfolio & Integration, he led the design and implementation of a new value chain risk management framework for Westpac Group. Before this, Bill worked with PwC and KPMG, in risk and strategy at the Commonwealth Bank and in strategy and implementation at the exited start-up Red Marker. He has also supported academic research publications at UNSW and UTS.

Fellow Co-founder and Co-CEO, Jon O’Keefe added: “We’re really excited to be joined by another senior practitioner – people are at the centre of everything we do at PX Partners. Bill’s unique experience from academia to novel Regtech lends itself perfectly to continue to drive innovation in governance, risk and compliance for our clients.”
Bill commented: “I’m thrilled to join the team at PX Partners and by the opportunity to lead technology innovation and partnerships. I’ve watched the business grow over the past two years and have been impressed how PX Partners uses hands-on “lived experience” to deliver and innovate for clients. I am passionate about making an impact, whether to people, organisations or society so was really drawn to the PX for Good commitment to corporate social responsibility.”
“Looking across the industry, I think we are at an inflexion point where there is a real opportunity to think about how and why we utilise governance, risk and compliance functions and how we can deliver enhanced outcomes through GRC by design and technology. I’m invigorated by the chance to be at the forefront of this both for PX Partners and our clients.”
