McGuire Appointed as GM Business Development at QinetiQ

QinetiQ announced the appointment of George McGuire, CSC, to the role of general manager Business Development. The role took effect on 23 August 2021.

McGuire’s appointment comes as a result of a strategic restructuring of QinetiQ’s Australian business, as it positions to continue its strong growth journey of the past five years.

“George is ideally placed to lead our Business Development team through our next growth phase, due to his 28 years of frontline experience with the Royal Australian Navy, including two warship sea commands. George’s deep understanding of the modern threat landscape provides our customers with a tactical advantage when it comes to assuring mission-critical capabilities,” said QinetiQ Australia’s managing director, Greg Barsby.

The strategic appointment and restructuring come at a time of increasing geopolitical instability, with QinetiQ moving to establish a more agile, nimble approach to responding to real Defence needs whilst ensuring growth is sustainable.

“After leading our Operations & Delivery team for the past six years, I believe I can bring that same customer focus and informed understanding of their needs to this new role. We are committed to supporting the Commonwealth with robust, Australian-led industrial capability, delivered by people with a deep, real understanding of the challenges facing the ADF,” said QinetiQ Australia’s General Manager Business Development, George McGuire.

“Crucially, as a global leader in Test & Evaluation, we’re further investing to grow and enhance this essential sovereign capability across digital and live environments in all warfare domains in Australia. Our operational T&E solutions provide the ADF with the capability knowledge they depend on to make better informed decisions.”

QinetiQ’s restructure establishes two delivery teams: one focused on our advisory services, the other on our growing engineering and technical services. This is further complemented by the rapidly growing opportunities in Robotics & Autonomous Systems and Power & Energy solutions.
