Toby Bellwood

Product Lead Lagoon

Hailing from the Isle of Man, and having lived in Canberra, Australia for the last 18 years, Toby has had a wide and diverse career, mostly technology focussed, but with a few interesting tangents (ask him about them sometime!).  He’s a long time map, data and open source nerd, but seems to be happiest talking to people about tech he’s passionate about.

Toby joins from the Australian Government Department of Finance, where he was the Tech Lead for GovCMS (the whole-of-Government web platform, built on Drupal, and hosted on Lagoon), and prior to that he was the Lead for the Australian Government’s Open Data platforms.  Toby’s been a Lagoon contributor for the last couple of years, and through his role at GovCMS he has collaborated with on many of the recent evolutions to the product.  His experience running hundreds of high-profile sites, serving hundreds of millions of pageviews on the Lagoon platform brings a keen enterprise focus, as well as a strong understanding of the needs of a broad range of user communities.
