  • Mr Nigel Heyn, CEO, REDD Digital

    Nigel has successfully built several companies, all underpinned by his desire to leverage technology smarts in order to positively influence business models and realise stakeholder dreams.

    Leveraging a vast network of global contacts established over many years, Nigel thrives setting best practices to provide digital excellence for his clients'​ success.

    Nigel Heyn participated in the 2014 Lord Mayoral Business Mission to Abu Dhabi, Hyderabad, Shanghai and Singapore. As a result of the 2014 mission, Nigel now has offices in Hyderabad and the company has grown to 18 staff in South East Queensland, two in Victoria, 28 in Hyderabad and 56 in Sri Lanka.
