Get ready for the unexpected

Yandong Fan (PhD 2009) has recently joined the National Australia Bank (NAB) as Architect – Architecture & Strategy. In this leadership role, he hopes to transform business banking through digital technologies and cutting-edge strategic customer relationship management (CRM) software.

Before moving to NAB, Yandong spent a couple of years as an Enterprise Architecture Manager at AGL Energy. There he managed the architecture team and propelled the advancement of digital and enterprise resource planning (ERP) software.

To achieve career success, Yandong advises, “Quickly gather business and technology knowledge as you go. Prepare for the unexpected and embrace change. Develop your communication skills by collaborating with colleagues.” Nothing like a good game plan.
