A chartered accountant, Ambrogio has more than two decades’ experience leading high-performance finance teams in high-growth public, private and Not-for-Profit enterprises. Ambrogio has previously held CFO roles at ASX-listed investment company Gowing Bros Limited, employment and training firm MTC Australia Limited, and leading Australian marketing agency Creative Activation.

Rob’s extensive experience in strategic and finance leadership, risk management, corporate governance and M&A considerably strengthens our executive leadership team and will be invaluable as we bring our Silicon Valley semiconductor fab fully-online. His demonstrated track record in overseeing business transformation and delivering significant shareholder value complements Jim’s expertise and will be critical as we transition BluGlass to revenue generation.”
