Neil Curtis is currently a Senior Executive in Cyber Security with DXC Technology. He is the lead for the DXC Veterans Social Impact Practice and works with the University of Southern Queensland as an Adjunct Professor in Cyber Security.
Neil joined the Royal Australian Army in 1988 and served as a Leopard Tank Loader/Operator, with 4 Troop, A Sqn, and later as a Military Policeman at 2 & 3 MP Coy. Transitioning from the service in 1996, Neil went on to join the Victoria Police Force and served a further 13 years with several roles and obtained the rank of A/Senior Sergeant.
Neil then resigned from the Victoria Police to take an executive role in Federal Law Enforcement that has ultimately led him through a variety of diverse and challenging roles at senior levels in Law Enforcement agencies, Emergency Management and Cyber Security.
Neil first heard of Soldier On whilst following up on inquiries with DXC Technologies and dedicated the time to move DXC into the recent signing as a Platinum Pledge partner with Soldier On. Neil states that “I could not in all good conscience, not be involved with such an organisation that leaves a legacy of improving Veterans and their families lives”.
Neil looks to drive connectivity with Veterans and large commercial corporations like DXC where they can engage, recruit, support, and positively affect Veterans and their families in a meaningful way. Soldier On is an important organisation to support and integrate positive outcomes. Neil is dedicated to bringing to Veterans mindfulness programs that suit the contemporary veteran and engage the outdoors and adventure.
Neil believes Soldier On is fundamental for leading the direction with Veteran Support into the business sector and providing those linkages and programs that support transition for the veteran and their family.
