Sharon Stanley
Head of Key Accounts
Amadeus IT Pacific

Over the past two decades, Sharon Stanley has gained a wealth of experience with a truly diverse range of companies spanning the construction, legal, banking, travel and IT industries.

For 10 years prior to joining Amadeus, a leading IT solutions provider and transaction processor for the global travel and tourism industry, Sharon worked with one of the world’s leading global travel management companies, reaching an Asia Pacific Senior Director role. Sharon was then looking for a new challenge; taking on a role that uses her years of experience and knowledge in travel management and transferring this into a related industry. Her position as Head of Key Accounts at Amadeus provides this, covering both the Travel and IT industries.

Sharon is proud of her accomplishments over the last decade; successfully managing and developing remote teams across a range of geographies and cultures. During this time she has improved employee engagement, and led her teams in retaining clients, increasing profit and in revenue recovery. This she has achieved by following her principles of being an ‘enabler’ who strives to provide a positive, supportive work environment in order to encourage her team to perform at their best, and to grow in their roles within the organisation. Sharon believes in the old adage of “not being afraid to employ people smarter than yourself ” so that both teams and the organisation as a whole become more successful.

In Sharon’s view, companies need to recognise the importance of diversity across senior management teams in providing a well-rounded approach to all areas of the business. And this diversity, she thinks, does not only come through a balance of men and women, but also through variations in age, culture and thinking.

In joining Executive Women Australia, Sharon is looking forward to opportunities to expand her network and meet like-minded people. She would like to share ideas and experiences around career advancement, but also coaching, mentoring and managing people to get the best outcomes for them and their roles.
