Former Gap, Nike IT director to take up role in October.

Job advertisement company Seek has appointed David Gibbons as its chief information officer, effective from October.

Gibbons would replace Carey Eaton, who left last month after two-and-a-half years at the company to pursue "personal business opportunities" in Kenya.

Seek's managing director of employment, Joe Powell, had since held an interim management position of the company's IT team.

Gibbons had held a CIO position at GE Capital Asia Pacific, as well as various leadership roles at GE subsidiaries since 2004. He has also held IT leadership roles at apparel companies Nike and Gap and runs an IT personal development company.

Eaton had consistently pushed a personal view that Seek was "not a technology company".

"A lot of people from outside I think look at Seek and see a technology company or an internet company, and generally that's actually a mistake," Eaton told the CIO Masters Series program in an interview last year.
