Digital products consultancy Transpire is pleased to announce the appointment of Geoff Campbell-Burns as Chief Operating Officer. In this newly created role, Geoff will call upon over 20 years of senior business management experience to help Transpire continue its rapid growth in the digital transformation space.

With his knowledge of agile project management and a human-centred design approach, Geoff is ideally suited to Transpire’s forward-thinking strategy, which turns complex business problems into empowering digital solutions.


Transpire is one of the fastest growing digital companies in Australia, as recognised by the Deloitte Technology Fast 50 2017 and the AFR Fast 100 2017.

Geoff joins Transpire from innovation and experience company IE Digital, where he also held the position of Chief Operating Officer. Previously, he spent 14 years at SMS Management & Technology (Australia & UK) and two years at Goldman Sachs in the UK.

“Everyone here at Transpire is thrilled to welcome Geoff to the team,” said Transpire CEO Luke Smorgon. “Geoff’s consulting experience and business acumen combined with a proven track record of helping strengthen and oversee the delivery of challenging and large scale digital projects means that both Transpire’s team and our customers will reap the rewards of his expertise.”

Geoff’s appointment coincides with an upcoming office move for Transpire – relocating from its current Malvern headquarters to King Street in Melbourne’s CBD.

“Geoff is joining Transpire at one of the most exciting times in our history,” added Luke. “Our move to the CBD means that we will be even closer to our customers, providing them with a better service and added value.

“As Chief Operating Officer, Geoff will be central to this, as well as contributing to our industry-leading offering.”

Since rebranding in October 2017, Transpire has enjoyed its most prosperous and profitable year of business. Projects have included a $2.7 million contract with Sir John Monash Centre, the development of Virgin Australia’s native mobile apps, and Australia’s first ever smartphone supercomputer – Vodafone Foundation’s DreamLab.
