hugh_-_resize.png Vice President - Hugh Peterken

A key learning from my varied career is the importance of business analysis in any successful
organisation. I am currently a strategic business analysis consultant, but started my career as an
engineer, then became a senior manager in Telstra before moving overseas to take up a global Chief
Information Officer role. I have received international and domestic recognition including a
Computerworld Laureate.

I have always been a strong supporter of industry associations such as IIBA. I have held roles as
Brisbane and Australian Chair of The Institute of Engineering and Technology and I am currently the
Chair of IIBA Brisbane Branch.

My agendas within IIBA relate to ensuring that business analysts are properly supported to fulfil
their potential in driving forward business success. In my work I see how strong business analysis
capabilities are often the differential that drives project or service success. Within IIBA we have the
opportunity to help our members develop their skills, networks and influence.



Treasurer - Susan Webb

I’ve been volunteering with the IIBA Perth chapter for 5 years, the last 3 in the position of Chair, so I understand how the organisation works at a practical level. 

I’m the Principal Practitioner for Business Analysis at DDLS, and I am also a Business Intelligence specialist, with experience in Finance, Education and ICT. 

I believe I can use this experience in these disciplines to help guide the IIBA Australian Chapter to make better strategic and tactical financial decisions moving forward and gain better insights into all aspects of the chapter.

As secretary, my main role is to maintain the legal & official documents of the association. This includes the organisation’s bylaws, constitution and the Board’s policy statements. The secretary also organises the board meetings, preparing the agenda, taking minutes & conducting any correspondence. While this may seem a mundane role, it is important to ensure that the association is professionally administered for the benefit of all members.

I have many years’ experience as a business analyst in a variety of industries. Since retirement, I continue my interest in my profession by tutoring at university to pass on my skills & knowledge to younger generations. This also keeps me up to date with the latest theories & research trends.
