PROFESSIONAL PROFILE NATIONALITY/RESIDENCY

In his current role, Charles Fisher manages Panduit’s Queensland

operations. As an IT account specialist, he focuses on infrastructure

methodology for managing enterprise communications networks,

computing, security and integrated network services.

His strong relationship management skills go hand in hand with his

technical expertise, which he provides during design of data centres

and corporate office projects.

His key expertise is in the management and design of data centre

solutions, and within the next two years Charles would like to be

managing a Brisbane-based IT company.

Charles successfully utilised his skills with professional roles in

Washington DC, Sydney and Brisbane. His international working

background enables him to draw on a wealth of knowledge and

experience.

Charles describes himself as passionate about both his professional

and personal life, and cites as an example the fact that he delivered a

tender response for a major client on his way to the hospital when his

wife was going into labour!

Moving to Australia and becoming an Australian citizen were proud

moments for Charles, highlighted only by missing a single question on

the citizenship exam and having his two week old baby girl attend

his citizenship ceremony!

Charles believes you make your own luck, and he has certainly pursued

great opportunities on the back of his Bachelor of Business and MBA.
