Cloud software and product developer Kablamo has appointed Kirsty Trask as its regional manager Melbourne.
Trask joins from call recording services provider Dubber where she was a senior product manager.
In her new role at Kablamo, she will oversee the growth across Victoria, software and product development and also coaching teams within client organisations to "adopt and embrace an Agile culture".
Kablamo co-CEO Angus Dorney said Trask’s experience in managing high-performance teams and track record delivering innovative software-centric solutions made her the perfect fit.
“I didn’t want to hire someone with just ‘go-to-market’ experience, that’s a dime-a-dozen,” Dorney said. “I wanted someone who was more strategic, had experience with software and product strategy, someone who can lead the customer journey from a blank sheet of paper all the way through to taking a new product to market."
Trask is a member of the Australian Computer Society’s Women in Victoria Group, and has also worked to encourage more women to pursue careers in technology as part of Females in Information Technology and Telecommunications (FITT).
“I’m passionate about getting more women into the industry and being given a leadership role means I can help develop careers and really push the needle. Importantly, it’s a mission Kablamo strongly believes in, so I know I’ll be supported to make a positive impact,” Trask said.
In July 2018, Kablamo welcomed Angus Dorney to the role of CEO after he vacated his position as senior director and general manager of Rackspace across Australia and New Zealand (A/NZ).
At the time, Kablamo said Dorney's appointment was the result of a partnership between him and Kablamo's founder and co-CEO Allan Waddell.
"Allan is one of Australia’s leading cloud visionaries," Dorney said. "He has built the Kablamo team – one of exceptional talent and integrity – into a unique and powerful cloud application partner."
