Stephen Scheeler

Former Facebook CEO for Australia & New Zealand

  • Stephen Scheeler is the former Facebook CEO for Australia and New Zealand, where he guided Facebook’s unprecedented rise from quirky Silicon Valley start-up to media and technology titan. Working with Mark Zuckerberg, Sheryl Sandberg and Facebook’s Silicon Valley leaders, his tenure at Facebook saw the Australian and New Zealand business – including Instagram, Messenger, WhatsApp and Oculus – grow to become one of the most successful Facebook markets in the world.

    Today – as founder of global advisory The Digital CEO – he partners with some of the region’s leading companies to help them build world-beating strategies, capabilities, culture and leadership, including Qantas, nab, Westpac, Macquarie Bank, ANZ Bank, Wesfarmers, Seven West Media, Google, the Australian Commonwealth Government, and a host of others. As a speaker, Stephen is an inspiring personality on the highest profile stages – including TEDx, the Australian Governance Summit and AMP Amplify – and is a member of the Australian Prime Minister’s Knowledge Nation 100, top innovation leaders in Australia.
