Michael Dixon

Managing Partner – Technical

“I’ve always been passionate about technology, solving problems and seeing how things work. But the most rewarding aspect of my work at Selerity is seeing the looks on people’s faces when we deliver real business value by designing and building the reports and dashboards that help them visualise the outcomes they are targeting.”

After 10 years working in IT for the Department of Social Security (including his role as NSW SAS® Programming Manager) and then working for SAS Australia for over a decade, Michael founded Selerity in September 2009.

Michael is also an experienced SAS Instructor, responsible for developing the very first SAS Data Integration Studio accreditation course for Australian SAS Consulting Partners.

In fact, it’s pretty safe to say there’s no-one else in Australia who knows as much about SAS (and all the process of technology underpinning SAS) as Michael does.

“With any SAS system there are many different ways to configure things. At Selerity we know how to optimise the system for every client, ensuring their system is set-up the way they want to use it and every aspect of their system working as it should.

“Clients don’t often realise how complex and time consuming maintaining SAS can be. Many are also unaware that they can choose who installs and maintains their SAS system for them. At Selerity we actually become an extension to our client’s own internal IT support team, and that’s pretty cool.”

Managing Partner – Business Development

“Talking data and outcomes really excites me because the tools and techniques have come a long way since I first worked in this industry. There is now no reason why any company, regardless of size, shouldn’t be able to use their data to effectively drive better business outcomes.

“As business development manager I’m the first point of contact our clients have with our team. After listening to our client’s needs and building an understanding of their over all picture I take them 40% of the way to a solution. I then hand them over to our team of experienced consultants who deliver the detail.”

With over 25 year’s experience in the corporate IT game, including just under a decade focusing on business intelligence software, Anthony’s experience lies in developing solutions and services that simplify and accelerate the way his clients access business analytics, and in particular SAS systems.

“I love working for a small business that delivers independent advice and most importantly, results for our clients. For me long-term client relationships are always paramount.

“The best bit of my job? Sitting down with a client after the job has been completed and enjoying a well-earned beer together!”

Financial Controller

“Even though I don’t have as much client contact as our consultants do, my focus is also firmly fixed on servicing our clients’ needs.

“As well as looking after all our accounts I also ensure everything behind the scenes is running smoothly for our consultants by putting in place systems, organising their travel and contracts. All of this ensures their day runs smoothly and allows them to deliver above and beyond expectations for our clients.

Kaylene has worked at Selerity for 6 years, both as financial controller and as head of administration.

“I really love the variety of my job and seeing on a daily basis the way we all work together as a team to really deliver for our clients.”
