Leadership Team

Rod Butterss

I am a serial entrepreneur, I can't help it, it's in my DNA. I have been blessed to have led amazingly talented teams where together we built market leading professional services brands including Icon, Ambit, Ajilon and Phoenix.

I've had my share of big wins along the way and experienced enough crash landings to have learnt many of life’s lessons.

My latest venture, Amadeus is all about building a community or federation of management and principal consultants who each maintain their own brands but leverage the community to access new customers, revenues and a range of services that support growth, in doing so, we provide:

- Working capital, cashflow and debtor finance to support growth

- Talent on tap for project delivery

- A community of like minded senior consultants who share ideas, networks, solutions and

- Personal and professional development to ensure continued growth and currency

- On trend offices / Co-working spaces in Richmond (Vic) and Surrey Hills (NSW) & Syd CBD

- Business planning to drive equity growth and exit planning, and it works!

George Covino

Providing direction, leadership, and commercialisation assistance to innovative and creative business ideas that want growth and revenue.

I’m an outcome-oriented executive with a record of success. I believe in unpacking the complications a business faces and simplifying them to the key core components, creating understandable and executable plans consistently resulting in growth and revenue generation.

My experience ranges from business development to sales to marketing and everywhere in between, I’ve helped start-ups turn big and large enterprises get bigger. I believe that good foundations are forged from the right attitude. Be motivated, goal-oriented and perpetually optimistic – without ever forgetting the realities.

Even more, perhaps, than I understand the needs of a business, I understand the needs of an individual. Self-worth, future aspirations and an ability to surface and drive the desire to succeed.

Utilizing the lessons I’ve learnt from extensive experience, the networks I’ve built along the way, and an amazing team to work with, I spend my time at Amadeus, strategising clear and actionable plans for businesses and individuals who have a hunger for success.
