Ashwath is responsible for Viclink’s engineering, medical devices and advanced physics portfolio, and will be working closely alongside the Robinson Research Institute. He moved home to Wellington in early 2018, to take up his new role with Viclink, after living and working in Sydney for many years—most recently as a Strategy and Insight Manager for Google.
Prior to that, Ashwath spent six years as a strategy consultant with Accenture—a global professional services company focused on using innovation and technology to help clients grow their businesses—where he focused on helping healthcare, media and energy clients develop new tech-orientated commercial opportunities.
He graduated from the University of Canterbury with a Bachelor of Engineering and a PhD in Bioengineering, and holds an MBA (with distinction) from INSEAD, one of the world’s top five graduate business schools. The former Wellington College student is happy to be back where he grew up, and is enjoying the outdoors lifestyle once more after years of apartment-living in Sydney.
