ACS regrets to announce that our CEO, Chris Vein will retire at the end of the year for personal/health reasons. His last official day with us will be 31 December 2023.

“As I step down from my role as CEO, I cannot help but be proud of the transformational journey we have shared,” said Mr Vein. 

“Together we’ve faced challenges, celebrated triumphs, and turned our dreams into tangible successes.  My deepest gratitude goes to each team member for their unwavering commitment, creativity, and hard work. 

“While I may be leaving, the spirit of innovation, indeed of transformation that defines ACS will continue to propel us forward.  I am excited to see what will be accomplished and will always cherish the memories and lessons from this remarkable chapter. 

“I thank the leadership of ACS for the honor of leading such an extraordinary team.” 

The ACS Management Committee is very grateful to Chris for his service said President Dr Nick Tate, FACS CP: “I am personally very sad to see Chris go and I would like to thank him for his extraordinary hard work and commitment over his time with us. His vision has positioned ACS well to better serve the both the Society’s members and the wider Australian technology community.”
