Elliot Nash

Griffith Information Technology graduate

An IT degree from Griffith was the start of an amazing journey for Elliot Nash. Soon after graduating, Elliot landed a programmer analyst role with a Gold Coast tourism operator with a focus on online tourism. This role led him to the realisation that his interest lay in combining his technical skills with business strategy. Elliot returned to Griffith to study an MBA.

Following his further studies, Elliot's qualifications and technical skills brought his profile to the attention of Amazon recruiters. It was not long before he was on his way to Seattle to take on the role of Technical Program Manager and embracing a new life in the US.

'My time at Griffith was extremely valuable in getting me where I am today. At Griffith, they teach the importance of leadership, vision, lifelong learning and mission, and at Amazon they really live and breathe those principles'.
