Meet Ivan from Group Tech

I'm Ivan Gulta and I'm Head of ITSM Technology and Automation at Westpac Group. Here's what you need to know about me.

I've worked here for 15 years and held 5 different jobs

After starting out as a Superannuation Administrator, I've spent my time here in various roles that suited my interests, passions and working style. I love that I've been given so many opportunities to try new careers within the Westpac Group.

I start and finish early

Most people don't believe me when I tell them I wake up around 4am most days… I use this time to either go to the gym or do some work from home before leaving to travel in to work. I usually leave work early in the afternoon with my wife, who also works at Westpac, which means we get some good quality time at home together.

I love the employee benefits I can use

I've definitely made the most of being a Westpac employee. I used Study Assistance to do an MBA, I have a home loan and other banking products with Westpac and St George (for discounted rates) and we even used our staff benefits with Specsavers when buying prescription glasses.

I can't wait to work from Kogarah

I'm excited that Westpac has created the GroupTech campus in Kogarah, because it's a new refurbished building and all of our back end systems will take centre stage for us all to work on. A lot of my colleagues who used to be spread around multiple buildings will all be under the one roof, making it easier for us techies to collaborate and deliver efficient and innovative solutions for our customers. Plus the state-of-the-art facilities and tools and the on-site gym are facilities I'm already taking advantage of.
