Mr Carl Hartmann

“Success is not a birth right, it is a privilege. Life is hard, the odds are against you and it’s only with hard work, tenacity and sacrifice that we achieve success.”

Mr Carl Hartmann is a multi-award winning Australian entrepreneur best known for his work as Co-Founder and Chief Executive Officer of Temando.

Hartmann has cultivated Temando from a budding idea to a flourishing enterprise that holds a coveted position as one of Australia’s largest and most successful technology start-ups. In 2016 alone, Temando had over 60,000 registered users and processed over 2.8 billion transactions.

With Hartmann at the helm, Temando has raised over $56 million in funding and established five major global offices.

After graduating from UQ, Hartmann founded Temando with Cameron Deane and Matt Malady to address the highly fragmented nature of delivery infrastructure, by creating a platform that connects the world’s logistical resources into a single intelligent software platform. Temando’s software enables merchants to create amazing customer delivery experiences, from cart to customer.

Today, Temando is used by some of the world’s leading retailers including Toys“R”Us, Myer and Super Retail Group, and has partnerships with leading technology platforms such as IBM and Magento.

A strategist even in his early university years, Hartmann structured his study path in a way that enabled him to graduate with two degrees and three majors. Hartmann says the breadth and balance of his education has helped him develop into the decision-maker he is today as the head of a global technology company.

Among the awards Hartmann has received are the Deloitte Rising Star Award, the Talent Unleashed Awards (Best Tech IPO / Venture Capital Raising), the IBM Global Entrepreneur of the Year Award (Australia), APAC and Global Runner-Up, and EY 2014 Entrepreneur of the Year Award (Northern Region, Technology Category).
