Cybersecurity vendor Nuix’s Rod Vawdrey has been named as the company’s next chief executive, following his promotion from chief operating officer.
Vawdrey will work closely with Nuix’s global leadership team and relinquish his role as head of the APAC region, which Nuix will soon announce a replacement for.
"Since joining Nuix, I continue to be impressed by the incredible power and unique capabilities of Nuix software and its ability to address some of the world's most difficult data and security challenges," Vawdrey said.
"It is rewarding to know that we can really make a difference and I feel honoured and privileged to lead the Nuix team to realise our full potential. Nuix will continue to be an increasingly valuable business and technology partner for our customers while being an employer of choice across all of our operations."
Vawdrey has more than 40 years’ experience in technology related organisations, and has previously served as Fujitsu’s corporate senior vice president, president of Fujitsu’s global business group and chief executive of Fujitsu Australia and New Zealand.
Nuix chairman and co-founder Tony Castagna said Vawdrey made a significant contribution to Nuix in the past two years in both his role as COO and ehad of Nuix Asia-Pacific.
"He has grown the company's customer base, expanded our geographic presence, strengthened business processes to support operations, and introduced an enterprise level focus for global sales and delivery,” Castagna said.
"Rod will lead Nuix through a year of transition, from its Australian foundation and heritage as an innovative software technology company with great people and unique capabilities, to a world leader in solutions for enterprise risk management, compliance and security."
