Aude has always been working for global manufacturing companies and helped set up EMEA headquarters for overseas companies.

Origins in engineering mean Neil has developed a strong technical background, allowing him to have a full understanding of the systems and solutions he offers.

Ben Italiano

Country Manager (Australia)

Born and bred in Melbourne, Ben began his career as an apprentice electrician in the elevator industry. After a number of years on the tools, he turned to sales where he has held operations and leadership roles across a multitude of industries including construction, retail, healthcare, and commercial buildings. Weekends are mostly spent with his wife, kids, pug, and friends, visiting local cafes where he indulges his love of coffee and donuts. He also finds time for camping, four-wheel driving, and enjoying the outdoors, all while getting a Master’s degree in Finance!

Neil Woolley

Regional Sales Manager (Western and Southern Australia)

Originally from New Zealand, Neil began his career as a fire technician before shifting focus to security and access control. He moved to Perth in 1999 where he quickly learned how far Western Australia is from anywhere else, but loves the extended summers too much to live anywhere else. He has a passion for the great outdoors, especially fishing, and spending time around a campfire with friends and family. Introduced to the world of flat whites and lattes over 20 years ago, he is also now a self-confessed coffee devotee.

Vincent Lescault

Regional Sales Manager (Eastern Canada)

A self-described epicurean, Vincent is all about fine dining and drinking – even growing his own tomatoes and more in his garden in the pursuit of a great meal! To support this, he’s recently taken to walking, jogging, and cross-country skiing. Based in Quebec, with a passion for developing and growing his professional relationships, Vincent brings 27 years of industry experience and skill to ICT.
