Risk-takers are people who see an opportunity and aren’t afraid to go after it, even if it could mean losing down the line. Entrepreneurs are risk-takers with a vision to disrupt and fill a void. Malcolm Allen is one of them. As a founder of both a telecommunications procurement business and an Australian start-up, Malcolm has brought his entrepreneurial spirit and drive to Partners in Performance.
As leader of our Digital, Telecommunications, and Robotic Process Automation practices, and head of our Papua New Guinea office, Malcolm’s leadership experience spans over 20 years. Beyond founding his own businesses, Malcolm has been a successful consultant at McKinsey & Company, the CEO of Westel/Concentrix, and Head of Special Projects at Vodafone. His focus is on business improvement, specifically within the digital, telecommunications, financial services, private equity, mining, and oil and gas industries. Malcolm truly transforms businesses.
Starting life on the Turkish/Russian frontier and then moving to Nigeria and Holland, Malcolm has seen the world through the eyes of both a child and an adult. He has lived within several cultures and has adapted to each. He settled in Australia where he now lives with his wife and four children. Malcolm is keen on discovering and enjoying fine wines and finds great satisfaction in climbing the highest mountains he can lay his eyes on.
