INX appoints first Head of Data Analytics
INX Software has continued its leadership hiring spree, appointing experienced data professional, Alex Maund as Head of Data & Analytics.
Mr Maund has more than 20 years’ experience in developing analytics and artificial intelligence capabilities to drive growth within organisations.
He has worked internationally across a wide range of industries, including financial services, utilities, healthcare, mining, and the public sector.
Mr Maund joins INX from AFG, where he led the mortgage aggregator’s analytics division. At AFG he developed a new data analytics strategy, designed and implemented a new data platform, and fostered a data insights-driven culture across the business.
Previous senior roles include a long stint in Deloitte Australia’s Consulting practice, including as Lead Data Scientist in the firm’s Perth Analytics and Cognitive team.
Mr Maund started his career as a government statistician in the United Kingdom.
INX Chief Executive Marcus Ashby said the appointment was market-driven, with an increasing number of the software developer’s clients requesting enhanced data services.
“In recent months we have been developing a new data and analytics strategy, identifying new opportunities to create value for our clients and grow our own business,” Mr Ashby said.
“Mr Maund will be a critical piece in the development and execution of that strategy, which will include new data platforms and data science capabilities.”
Mr Ashby said Mr Maund would be part of INX’s new-look management team, which has been bolstered throughout 2022 with a series of key executive hires, including Chief Technology Officer Matt Faries, Chief Financial Officer Luke Disbury and Chief Sales and Marketing Officer Jaimie Godden.
Mr Maund started his new role on September 27.
“Data and analytics is a big growth opportunity for us, and a key part of our global growth strategy,” Mr Ashby said.
“His skills in machine learning, AI and self-service analytics tools will not only provide data driven insights to guide our growth, but also that of our clients.”
Perth-headquartered INX, which is backed by John Wylie’s alternative asset investment vehicle Tanarra Capital, has a global client base operating in complex, fast-paced industries, spanning mining and infrastructure, transport, health, and government.
Its software solutions enable organisations to monitor, report and adapt their operations to keep their employees safe and enhance efficiencies.
INX has recorded 30 per cent growth in licensed users in the past year, taking its total user base to more than 1 million, while at the same time the company has increased its research and development spend by 80 per cent.
Mr Maund said he was excited to join INX at a time of rapidly accelerating growth.
“INX’s software solutions are cutting edge and market leading, helping businesses operate safely in high-risk and complex situations,” Mr Maund said.
“I look forward to playing my role in both enhancing and expanding the INX offering, while also leveraging data to continue the company’s fast growth trajectory.”
