Hi, I’m Barry Silic, a business focused and highly experienced entrepreneurial and technical expert. I’ve been in the ICT Industry for over ten years and I’m currently a director of Cavalry (www.cavalry.com.au).
I’ve studied in four different countries and I speak three languages. I moved to Sydney in 1995 after living in Bosnia & Herzegovina, Russia, Croatia and Germany. I graduated from University of Technology, Sydney with an Engineering Degree (Computer Systems), sub-majoring in Business Management. I’ve been with Cavalry for the past nine years. Prior to joining the Cavalry team, I had a number of consulting roles focused on using technology to drive a business outcome. I’ve worked with a number of international and national companies and have established successful ITC strategies for national and international enterprises using a variety of solutions and services including Cloud (Public/Private/Hybrid), Security, Mobility, CRM and ERP.
I demonstrate a deep understanding and have a strong experience in the following elements of the ICT stack:
- Private cloud, Public Cloud, Hybrid Cloud, multi-tenancy
- Orchestration, automation and self-service systems
- Infrastructure, backup, disaster recovery
- Application delivery, telephony, internet and security, messaging and collaboration
I enjoy producing business strategies, leading highly skilled technical teams, mentoring business owners and being involved at a board level.
I married the love of my life, Ana in 2010 and we have a beautiful little girl Eva Antonia. They are the inspiration behind everything I do. In my spare time I enjoy spending time with family and friends, traveling, reading, going to the theatre, spear-fishing, scuba diving and keeping active.
