Founding director and Queensland general manager, Mark Esler, retires after 30 years with Data#3

IT veteran and Data#3 Queensland general manager, Mark Esler, has retired after 40 years in the industry.

Esler, a founding director of Data#3 in 1984, will be replaced by Ray Merlano as acting Queensland general manager until a permanent appointment is announced.

Data#3 managing director, John Grant, said Esler had made a significant contribution to Data#3 and wished him well for his retirement.

“Thirty years is a life’s work and Mark leaves confident of a bright future for the company to enjoy time with his family,” he said.

“He can quite rightly feel very proud of his achievements and on behalf of everyone he’s worked with at Data#3 and the Board of Directors, I offer thanks for the enormous and invaluable contribution he has made.

“His experience, calm and considered thought will be sorely missed.”

Esler began his career in 1976 with IBM and in his 30 years with Data#3 played a leading role in sales and operations with recent positions including General Manager Product Solutions and General Manager Queensland.
