Quantium CEO Adam Driussi selected into the Knowledge Nation 100

Will participate in the Knowledge Nation 2016 summit in March

Quantium chief executive Adam Driussi has been recognised as one of the nation’s sharpest thinkers with his inclusion in the Knowledge Nation 100 list prepared by the Knowledge Society and the Office of the Chief Scientist. The list was published exclusively in The Australian newspaper in December.

The Knowledge Nation 100 consists of Australians who apply and create knowledge by building the industries, creating the jobs and striking the partnerships that will underwrite the nation’s future prosperity. These leaders are considered the stars of the Australian innovation constellation: the nation’s knowledge creators, the people driving business transformation with advanced analytics, digitisation, start-up acquisition and product development.

Adam featured in the group of change agents responsible for transforming existing industries and adapting them to the digitised world. He has been invited to participate in the Knowledge Nation 2016 summit in Sydney on 14 April, 2016.

The summit will provide a platform for the leaders of Australia’s knowledge economy to convene with policymakers and key stakeholders to galvanise around a common agenda to drive the jobs and skills of tomorrow.

As part of his strong support for innovation, Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull has pledged to work with the Knowledge Nation 100 this year as the first step in his efforts to help turn ambition into action.

Quantium chairman Tom Pockett said Adam’s selection among the Knowledge Nation 100 was an important accolade and acknowledgment of his success leading one of Australia’s leading data and analytics companies.

“Adam has been instrumental in the growth of Quantium since he co-founded the company in 2002,” Mr Pockett said. “We are proud he has been recognised as one of the so-called ‘rock stars of the new economy’ and look forward to his participation in the upcoming summit, which we hope will help create a roadmap to improve Australia’s standing as an innovation nation.”
