About me


My name's Chris and I'm an addict... (bear with me) Yes, I'm addicted to people. More specifically, to helping people. It can be a bit frustrating sometimes, that's true, but the job satisfaction is immense when everything comes together. There's great fulfillment to be gained from helping launch the relationships which define tomorrow's technologies, and also from giving individuals the leg-up they need to reach the next rungs on their career ladders. As IC Resources' Brand Interaction Manager I'm tasked with nurturing public engagement with the IC Resources & IC Creative brands. This involves developing corporate identity and community presence in both physical and digital spaces. I also have the pleasure of managing talent attraction and acquisition for internal and external groups within the IC Resources network. IC RESOURCES is the recognised recruitment partner to the global technology community. Our areas of expertise span a variety of markets including Software, Semiconductor, Engineering, Electronics, and Commercial. IC CREATIVE is a team of specialist consultants operating across a global stage in the digital and creative domains (Design, Development, Research and Strategy in UX/UI/Mobile/Web).
