About the Pearcey Foundation

The Pearcey Foundation Inc. was established in 1998 to raise the profile of the Australian Information and Communications Technology (ICT) industry and profession. It was created in the memory of one of the greatest pioneers of the Australian ICT industry, Dr Trevor Pearcey.


By celebrating ICT heroes in our industry, past, present and emerging, the Pearcey Foundation is looking to attract and encourage young Australians into this most exciting of global high technology sectors of our nation.

The Pearcey Foundation recognises outstanding Australians contributing to the sector, both heroes and entrepreneurs through a range of national and state awards.

By holding events, the Foundation facilitates in-depth policy debates on how to best make use of the transformative digital technologies that are reshaping Australian society and its economy.
