Nuix has appointed Rod Vawdrey as CEO.
Vawdrey brings more than 40 years’ international experience. Prior to joining Nuix, Vawdrey was corporate senior vice president and president of Fujitsu Limited Global Business Group, where he led Fujitsu’s international operations and was responsible for the company’s IT products and services.
“Rod has made a significant contribution to Nuix’s Australian and international operations over the past two years in his role as chief operating officer and head of Nuix’s Asia-Pacific operations, and has established strong relationships with our employees, customers and partners,” said Nuix chairman and co-founder Tony Castagna. “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.”
He added, “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.”
Before Fujitsu, Vawdrey held various country, region and headquarter executive roles in Europe, the Americas, Asia Pacific and Japan for Fujitsu, NCR and AT&T GIS. Over his career, he has developed and implemented sales, partner and professional services teams, led marketing and product operations, and managed customers in all major markets.
“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,” said Vawdrey. “It is rewarding to know that we can really make a difference and I feel honored and privileged to lead the Nuix team to realize 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.”
