TEC Mentor Vince Lendrum “I wish I had discovered TEC when I was in my first CEO role. I could immediately see how it would have helped me navigate the myriad challenges; how to integrate a new acquisition, how to lead in turbulent times, how to manage diverse and divergent stakeholder priorities. As a TEC Chair. I now love to be able to stand alongside Business owners and CEO’s and help them navigate their respective journeys and still thoroughly ‘enjoy the ride’.”

Vince is Managing Director of Vince Lendrum Pty Ltd, established to serve business owners and CEOs who aspire to be pivotal in the economic success of the regions and sectors in which they operate. He is also an Associate Director of Amplifi Governance.

Following his passion to help ambitious businesses fulfil their potential Vince became a TEC Chair and brings a unique breadth and depth of international business experience combine to deliver exceptional contributions to companies and their owners and has extensive regional expertise in the Middle East, Europe and Australasia – particularly in Australia, UAE, Japan, China, UK, India and Korea.

Vince is intensely results orientated with an open, determined leadership style. Since early 2007, Vince focused his energies into expanding his own Consulting, Coaching and Interim Management business – Vince Lendrum Pty Ltd. This consulting activity led to the opportunity to take on his first CEO role for ITC Limited, widely regarded as the most commercially successful controlled entity of any Australian University.

Despite his career achievements, Vince believes the areas where he is typically credited with contributing most to organisations’ development is in providing a balanced and insightful perspective on the business opportunities in the domestic and international arena, whilst also being a catalyst for clarification of companies’ ambitions and a stimulus to effective execution of the resulting strategies.
