Turnkey Consulting increases focus on risk management; Appoints Mark Bookatz to expand SAP GRC service offering in Australia

February 7, 2014

SAP and IT security company, Turnkey Consulting ( has appointed Mark Bookatz as director in Australia. The former managing director of risk management software company Cura Software Solutions in Australia and Asia Pacific, Mark will be responsible for developing Turnkeys risk management practice in Australia.

At Cura, Mark was responsible for providing GRC solutions encompassing enterprise risk management, compliance, internal audit, project risk management and occupational health and safety. Customers included BHP Billiton, National Australia Bank, Virgin Australia and Westfield. Prior to Cura, Mark was a principal consultant at PricewaterhouseCoopers.

Turnkey is the only company of its kind in Australia with an SAP-qualified risk management Rapid Deployment Solution (RDS) that can be implemented in four weeks. Adding Marks experience and skills to the team complements the companys existing SAP Governance Risk and Compliance (GRC) services and offers customers the facility to have all their GRC needs handled by one consultancy.

Risk management is only truly effective if it is an integral part of the overall business processes, explains Mark. This has led to the recognition that business systems must converge to meet this need and the industry is starting to address the challenge. Turnkey Consulting is well-recognised as a specialist provider of GRC services and its increased focus on risk management reinforces its position as a global leader in implementing the complete GRC suite.

Ed Davis, director at Turnkey Consulting Australia, says: Customers are increasingly looking to widen the scope of their GRC solutions with the focus being end-to-end enterprise systems. Undertaking this with one consultancy is the most effective method to achieve seamless integration, and adding Marks expertise to our team means that Turnkey can now allow them to achieve this.
