Recently VISEO opened its Australian Head Office in Melbourne from where it will grow its market presence and undertake product development.

VISEO is a global tech company with its origins in France. They are digital makers, helping organisations to transform themselves through Technology and Innovation. VISEO as a company can be considered as a success story - started from scratch to build a group of more than 2,000 consultants with a strong presence on five continents.

We caught up with Olivier Dhonte, Chairman and Asia Managing Director, and Pierre-Francois Vieau, Australian Managing Director, to learn more about the company and to find out why it chose Melbourne for its base for Australia, including:

  • There’s a real appetite amongst companies to use technology as a lever for organisational effectiveness and competitive advantage.
  • The talent in Victoria is both high quality and in good supply with more technology and engineering graduates in Melbourne than any other Australian city.
  • Five out of ten major Australian companies are headquartered in Melbourne.
  • Melbourne’s quality of life is a dream for most people.

See the video below to hear their story.

VISEO is the latest addition to Melbourne tech ecosystem that has already attracted companies like Zendesk, Square, Alibaba, Google, OVH, Eventbrite and Slack.

It also joins other successful and innovative French businesses such as Alstom Transport, Dassault Systèmes, Lactalis, Loreal, Renault, Total Eren and Transdev who call Victoria home.
