The Australian Institute of Project Management (AIPM) has appointed a new CEO and operations manager, replacing the role of general manager.
Sheryle Moon has been appointed CEO of the institute, to provide a “much stronger focus on our organisational strategic development and on marketing the AIPM,” said AIPM president Bill Young.
Former AIPM Certification & Assessment manager Chris Mansfield has taken up the post of operations manager, overseeing the departments of Knowledge Management, Events, Membership, RegPM administration, and Office Support.
Moon said she saw the role as an opportunity to grow AIPM’s influence in the region and beyond, following the institute’s recent alliances with the Asia Pacific Federation for Project Management and the International Project Management Association (IPMA).
“I view my appointment as an opportunity to further grow AIPM’s presence and influence, both locally and internationally,” said Moon. “The contribution of project management in delivering economic outcomes is increasingly a topic of conversation in corporations and government agencies.”
She added: “The AIPM Certification is so well regarded that AIPM is working with the international organisation IPMA, to align project management certification standards globally.”
Moon has 25 years of management experience, including as president for Australia and New Zealand at Ross Human Direction, director of ANZ Manpower, and CEO of the Australian Information Industry Association. She is also an author and a former Telstra Business Woman of the Year award winner.
“With the strength of experience and capability, Sheryle’s leadership will help the AIPM shift to a new level of operation and service delivery,” said Young.
