  • Bio

    With over 25 years of IT-related experience across multi-nationals and start-ups Dalton takes pride in being a champion for the engineering and innovation culture at REA Group.

    “Getting comfortable with working at extreme rates of change, in multi-disciplinary teams, in a daily rhythm took REA a few years – I had the joy of inheriting a high performing IT group in 2012, to whom a billion page views a month for a website is a daily ‘situation normal’.”

    Prior to joining REA Group Dalton worked as General Manager of Information Technology for travel publisher Lonely Planet where he became Deputy Director of Digital (web and mobile businesses) in 2010.

    He also co-founded a consultancy, Luna Tractor, to help organisations apply systems thinking, lean and agile software development techniques to all aspects of business and held roles with AXA Australia, online human resource startup ePredix in the USA (now owned by SHL), as well as Silicon Systems and Mitsubishi Electric in New Zealand.
