About Me

I am an Australian Business Executive, with experience leading and directing successful companies ranging from Startup to Large enterprise businesses with revenue over $100m. 

For over 20 years, I have led and advised successful companies across the Technology, Retail and Professional Services industries. My journey has taken me to regions including North America, UK, Asia Pacific, and Africa where I have been responsible for leading international operations, corporate governance, enterprise sales, capital raising, and training and education.

The highlight of my career to date was the opportunity to lead a family owned, Brisbane based Technology and Professional Services company, through its international expansion. Working with a committed team of professionals, we were able to successfully establish its international operations, develop market awareness and grow sales in a highly competitive industry, and ultimately increase shareholder value. This culminated in the successful sale of the business to a group of investors and an exit for the family.

I have an interest in Non-Executive, and Executive Director opportunities with technology, retail and professional services companies, emerging companies, companies seeking diversity on their board, and businesses seeking improved efficiency and growth.

Executive Endorsements

“Cheriece is a fabulous communicator and a motivated worker. She has assisted in transforming and improving all of the businesses with which she has worked. Cheriece operates with integrity, care and intelligence. I would recommend her highly for any position for which her sills are suited”

Peter Brooks Founder, InfoCentral Solutions

“I had the privilege of working with Cheriece at InfoCentral Solutions for many years and was impressed with Cheriece and her abilities, both as a person as well as a co-worker. Cheriece is hard working and reliable, has exceptional selling and communication skills and made a positive contribution to the growth of the organisation.

The low employee turnover and high employee job satisfaction rate at InfoCentral Solutions was primarily as a result of Cheriece’s ability to manage, mentor and motivate the employees and co-workers. I wish Cheriece well in her new role as Executive Board Member and am confident that, in line with her skills and abilities, Cheriece could make a positive contribution at any organisation.”

Tony White Founder, Legalink

“I am privileged to have been associated and worked closely with Cheriece since 2008, as a customer of InfoCentral and as a contractor to the company. The interaction from this unique involvement has given me a more comprehensive understanding of Cheriece, her passions and a strong commitment to both her company’s corporate objectives and client expectations.

I am full of admiration and appreciation for the total commitment she has demonstrated to me in both facets of our business relationship. From the infancy of InfoPos, I have observed Cheriece learning, building and leading the corporate team. Daily, she has invited her employees and those she was responsible for, to challenge themselves to achieve the highest level of excellence in service delivery. Cheriece is acutely aware of the challenges and the level of accountability required to be a success and to that end, she leads from the front. Cheriece’s depth of knowledge and experience in all areas of Retail and eCommerce and her understanding of the business tools required to effectively service those business sectors speak for themselves.

From a customer’s perspective, I have always observed Cheriece’s total commitment to bring her wealth of experience and the total dedication of team behind her to deliver to client expectation. On a personal note, I am aware that Cheriece has achieved some very challenging but necessary corporate milestones. Some of those have been made through self-sacrifice and at personal cost, some just had to be made and she did not back away and will not when the extra effort is required. I congratulate Cheriece on her recent appointment to position of Executive Director at InfoPos and wish her well in her chosen pathway, now and into the future.

With Cheriece’s permission, I would have no hesitation in responding to any future request regarding my recommendations concerning Cheriece.”

Simon Schaumuller Senior Software Engineer

“I had the pleasure of working with Cheriece for over a decade asa Senior Developer. Cheriece was pinnacle to introducing agile processes, managing the technical team and providing product direction in conjunction with an exemplary analytical skill set. I would highly recommend Cheriece in any leadership role.”
