Sam Bowtell

Sam Bowtell works for CommBank and is in his ‘third’ career. Graduating as an Electronic Engineer from Uni in the UK, Sam soon moved into a sales career realising he was more passionate about the people side of technology. After 15 years in technology sales and sales leadership, Sam joined CommBank and ran many large technology transformation projects over ten years, the last 4 years being in Agile and scrum. In his current role, he heads the Agility Practice for CommBank, leading the Bank’s team of Agile coaches. He is also a leadership coach, facilitator and runs many team building days.

In the community, Sam is involved in some skilled volunteering with OzHarvest, looking at how they can use the Agile mindset and scrum practices to improve how they run their operations. Outside of work, Sam is a lifelong Chelsea supporter, a mirror twin and a loving husband, father, friend and coach to his family, Sara, Jasmine and Charlie and their 4 chickens!
