Australian-based document software vendor, Intelledox, has added former Kaz commercial director, Michael O'Sullivan, to its board as part of plans to expand onto the international stage. He will sit alongside his former Kaz peers and Intelledox board members, Peter Kazacos and David Knox.
General manager and one of Intelledox's founders, Michelle Melbourne, said O'Sullivan's wealth of experience in commercial, financial and legal matters would be crucial in assisting the company to clinch international business opportunities, particularly in the Asian region.
Intelledox produces intelligent document creation software for the enterprise market. Its current sweet spot is organisations with 1000-3000 users, but Melbourne said its added capacity would now allow it to target organisations with 10,000 users or more. Existing customers include the Australian Federal Government.
"There's not a lot of companies in Australia with 10,000 users or more, which is why we want to target overseas," she said. "Michael will be guiding the company to take advantage of these opportunities and ensure we have the legal and financial structure in place to continue to expand."
O'Sullivan's appointment brings Intelledox's total board members numbers to six. Knox, who was formerly head of business development at Kaz, started about six months ago as sales director, while Kazacos joined as chairman last year.
O'Sullivan said he had been introduced to the company by his former colleagues and saw it as an exciting opportunity to help foster a new technology business. Since leaving Kaz, he has been involved in a variety of ventures including helping a new technology start-up off the ground and assisting an Australian film with international financing. Prior to joining Kaz O'Sullivan was a consultant to the NSW Treasury Department.
"I saw this as a good opportunity to get involved and do something like I have done before, which is watching a company growth and being part of that growth," he said.
