In this podcast, Steve Robinson, Nova Systems chief executive Australia and New Zealand, and Lee Kormany, general manager – maritime, land and future systems, join host Phil Tarrant to discuss delivering Australia’s sovereign shipbuilding and, more broadly, sovereign defence industry capabilities.
During this podcast, Robinson and Kormany discuss the development of Nova Systems’ local business from an SME to a large Australian defence business and the company’s role in supporting the growth, development and engagement of Australia’s robust SME sector.
Robinson and Kormany also discuss the transition from uniformed personnel to defence industry and the role of defence industry in supporting veterans as they transition their skills and experience into supporting the next generation of defence capability.
Finally, Robinson and Kormany explain the importance of building and sustaining long-term strategic relationships throughout defence industry and the ADF decision makers as a key multiplier for supporting the development of Australian SMEs and their role in developing a sustainable SME supply chain.
