Previously the CFO of 5B, a clean technology leader that accelerates access to low- cost, safely deployed, solar energy, Diamantakiou has also held leadership roles at companies including Optus, Yahoo7, WooliesX (part of the Woolworths Group) and the Association for Data-Driven Marketing & Advertising (ADMA).
