Nov 21, 2019
Nova Group has recently welcomed Rebecca Humble into the role of Group Chief of Strategy & Capability and Tom Gleeson as Chief Commercial Officer.
Greg Hume, Nova Group CEO, said, “We are delighted to have Rebecca and Tom join our team. Both are accomplished global leaders, born and bred in Australia and bring with them a wealth of experience in the defence, aviation and other relevant sectors.
“Australia produces tremendous talent which is valued on the global stage – to be able to attract home-grown talent back and leverage it to the benefit of an Australian owned company such as Nova, as well as the broader industry is a win all round.’’
On joining the Nova team, Humble said, “It is an exciting time to join Nova and the leadership team given the company’s aspirations to deliver growth in Australia and for expansion globally.”
“For an Australian company to recognise the value that can be added by bringing in a global perspective is testament to Nova’s commitment to deliver growth, and the value they place on diversity of thought.”
As a global leader in the defence and national security sectors, Humble returned to Australia in 2018 after 18 years working in senior executive roles in the US, UK and Europe. She has a track record for driving and executing growth strategies for global corporates including multi-billion-dollar acquisitions and subsequent integration activities.
Humble joins Nova from BAE Systems Australia where she was Director of Strategy. Her career has included roles as VP Global Strategy for the world’s largest military vehicles business based in the US, a Director on the Tornado military aircraft program and a director of the international section of the Red Cross based in Luxembourg.
Gleeson recently returned to Australia after 3 years working in the US. A commercial and transformation executive with a background in global corporations and defence, Gleeson joins from GE Additive in his role of Senior Sales Executive.
Starting his career as a fighter pilot and flying instructor in the RAAF, Gleeson then joined McKinsey & Company as a management consultant.
