INX Software has appointed financial executive Luke Disbury as its Chief Financial Officer, as the Company’s ambitious global growth strategy goes into overdrive.
Mr Disbury is an experienced finance director and management consultant who has worked internationally across a range of industries, including oil & gas, mining, consumer products, energy, utilities, healthcare and life sciences.
He joins us from the Corporate Turnaround and Restructuring team at Alvarez & Marsal in the United Kingdom, with a focus on interim management and operational restructuring. Prior to this he held a number of finance, transformation, performance improvement and advisory roles in the UK, Kazakhstan, Switzerland and the Netherlands. He is a Chartered Accountant in Australia and the UK.
The appointment is the fourth major executive hire made by INX in recent months as part of its ambition to transform the business and its product offering by 2024.
Chief Executive Marcus Ashby joined the software developer earlier this year, with his appointment quickly followed by the executive hires of digital transformation specialist Matt Faries as Chief Technology Officer and marketing executive Jaimie Godden as Chief Sales and Marketing Officer.
Mr Ashby said Mr Disbury’s appointment was the next step forward in a rapidly evolving phase of growth for the software developer, which is backed by John Wylie’s alternative asset investment vehicle Tanarra Capital.
Perth-headquartered INX has a global client base that operates in complex, fast-paced industries, including 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.
“Luke’s considerable experience across international industries will be an exciting addition to our executive team,” Mr Ashby said.
“We have embarked on a transformational journey in 2022, as we reimagined our cloud-first software solutions to help our clients better manage, track, and adapt their performance and impact on people and the environment.
“Luke will help us continue along that path of solving real customer problems by managing risk and compliance while improving operational efficiency.”
Mr Disbury said he was excited to join INX at such a pivotal time for the company.
“INX is a market leader of software solutions with a highly-experienced, qualified and innovative executive team,” he said.
“I look forward to helping the team achieve its global growth ambitions and continue INX’s digital transformation, while also helping our clients achieve their goals of operating in a socially responsible manner.”
