Services company, TAS, has appointed Neil Gamble as its new chairman.
TAS CEO, Shane Baker, said the appointment coincides with the company’s ongoing evolution and refreshed business strategy, which sees an extension of the firm’s core services for the banking and finance sectors as well as the acceleration of the company’s products and services into new markets.
He said the appointment is also key to the future growth of the company.
“With a rapidly changing business landscape demanding disruptive innovative solutions at the enterprise level, TAS is set to bridge a gap in Australia’s (banking and finance) marketplace. Year-on-year, we’re enhancing our services and capabilities, ensuring they are aligned with our customer needs while providing timely and efficient advice and solution delivery.
“Neil brings strategic growth advice to TAS, which will help shape how we navigate today’s ever-changing landscape ensuring that we are always meeting our customer needs,” he said.
Gamble said joining TAS as chair is a timely opportunity. He said using technology as a customer service differentiator is key for businesses particularly in banking and finance - a sector that can be slow to embrace rapid innovative change.
“Companies that are flexible and fast-moving will be the ones to survive this change. They need to focus less on the competition and more on the next disruptive technologies, and how to leverage them.
“Key to this is to have a management team that looks at strategic issues with technology and disruption in mind. To do this, you need the right culture and the right leadership and I feel TAS brings this to the market.” he said.
Gamble brings significant executive management experience to TAS, having previously held senior roles such as CEO of Solution 6, Star City, Australis Media and Wormald. He has also held a number of director and chair positions with various technology companies, including Engin and Protegic.
