“We recognise Rebekah’s strategic vision when it comes to bringing innovative digital service solutions and revenue models to an industry deeply affected by digital disruption. As she brings her notable experience and leadership skills to serve a new audience, namely millions of Australia’s rugby fans, we know that we leave this award in good hands. We’re proud to select Rebekah Horne as our first Australian CDO of the Year,” he said.
