Tracey Kennair

Ms Tracey Kennair is the Digital Transformation Partner, Victorian Government Consulting Lead Partner and Deputy Chair of the Board of Partners PwC Australia.

Ms Kennair is passionate about helping clients leverage digital technologies and supporting people to enable transformational change.

Although Ms Kennair’s background spans work across a number of industries, her focus over the last 15 years has been supporting the Victorian government to better serve the community.

Ms Kennair has a particular focus as both the Justice and Community Safety Leader and overall Consulting Leader for the firm.

Ms Kennair also plays a key role as Deputy Chair for the Board of Partners for PwC Australia. Her Board responsibilities include chairing the firm’s Risk Committee and leading on the Spirit of Partnership program.

Ms Kennair has over 25 years’ experience across multiple industries both in Australia and overseas. Her background has always focused on systems implementations and technology enabled change that benefits people, be that the customer, community or employee.

Recent projects include working with the Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal (VCAT) to assist them to consider their digital response to COVID19, which forced the closure of tribunal hearings. This led to further work helping them digitise the operations of their Planning and Environment Hearings, so these cases could progress remotely. This was a priority for the government given the significant and growing backlog of planning and environment disputes that have needed resolution to enable the building sector to continue.

Ms Kennair has also worked closely with Court Services Victoria and the broader judicial system including Supreme, County, Magistrates and Children’s Courts to consider their future operation in a digital world. This has included development of their digital strategy and support with its implementation.

Ms Kennair has also worked on projects for Fire Rescue Victoria to support the development of the digital strategy and roadmap to consider how they can best transform their leverage of technology and data to become a leading fire rescue organisation, and with Victoria Police to help transform frontline policing with the introduction of digital technologies including mobile devices and body worn cameras to nearly 10,000 frontline police officers.

Work on this project also included the design and implementation of a new intelligence management system to help link data sources to better solve and prevent crime. This program included the design and implementation of two new channels, to enable members of the public to more easily report non-urgent crime, through the new Police Assistance Line (131 444 - when you need the police but not the sirens) and online reporting of non-urgent crimes.

Through her work with Victoria Police, Ms Kennair has been a supporter of Police Legacy, Bluelight Discos and was recently a member of the Blue Ribbon Day Council.

Ms Kennair has a Bachelor of Business Information Systems from Monash University.
