Patrick, formerly holding key positions at Dentsu International, arrives with a mission to secure investment capital and establish crucial strategic alliances, propelling the company’s expansion both in Australia and abroad.
One of his primary responsibilities will be to expand and diversify Capability.Co’s impressive list of blue-chip clients, which already includes industry giants like Telstra, ANZ Bank, the Victorian State Government, and Stockland.
Founded in 2020, Capability.Co has already made a remarkable impact with its innovative capability assessment tools and development solutions. Notable achievements include being a key partner in delivering the Telstra Future Ready program and supporting the Victorian Gambling and Casino Commission in their transformation journey focused on human capabilities.
Appointed by Capability.Co co-founders Mark and Kate Britt, Patrick Darcy brings a wealth of experience, having previously served as Chief Growth Officer for Australian Payments Plus, where he led transformative projects for enterprise clients like Coles.
Darcy expressed his vision for the role: “Capability.Co is on a mission to unlock the untapped potential in individuals by recognizing their innate qualities alongside technical skills. As a startup already trusted by industry leaders, we are well-positioned to make a profound societal impact in evolving labor markets.”
Mark Britt, Chairman and Co-founder of Capability.co, emphasized Darcy’s suitability for the role: “Patrick’s commitment to core values and purposeful transformation aligns perfectly with our mission to impact millions of lives during this era of societal change.”
