Tue, 14th Mar 2023

Australian technology company triSearch has named Chris Gibbs as its new CEO, replacing Taylah Allen who left the company in November 2022 to pursue other career opportunities overseas. triSearch has experienced rapid growth since its launch in 2018, and its recent launch of award-winning conveyancing practice management software, triConvey, has cemented its place as one of the most popular conveyancing technology companies in Australia.

Gibbs brings over three decades of strategic leadership experience to triSearch, having excelled in sales and marketing strategy, software-as-a-service, and cloud computing services in telecommunications, banking and finance, retail, and more. Gibbs is excited about the potential for "hypergrowth" at triSearch and to transform an Australian company with tremendous potential domestically and internationally.

Gibbs said he was thrilled for the opportunity and saw starting with triSearch as an "opportunity of a lifetime." He said that throughout his years in leadership, he has learned that if you have a group of people who believe they can make a difference and are passionate about where they work, anything is possible. Gibbs added that he brings his enthusiasm for questioning the status quo to inspire innovation and large-scale growth opportunities.

Matthew Tarabay, the company's Marketing Manager, believes that Gibbs' extensive leadership experience and the company's recent market growth will ensure triSearch's upward trajectory. Tarabay said that combining Gibbs' extensive leadership experience and triSearch's market growth is the strategic decision needed to continue the company's upward trajectory. He added that triSearch has seen exceptional growth since its inception in 2018, gaining a major market share in the last five years.

Gibbs said that his decision to leave his role as the Australian and New Zealand Managing Director of content delivery network, cybersecurity, and cloud service company Akamai Technologies was difficult, but necessary to achieve the next step in his career. He said that Akamai Technologies is a great company with a great set of people and great customers, but he looks forward to using the culmination of many years of working with technology businesses and being fortunate to grow with some of the biggest brands, inspirational teams and fantastic customers to build something incredible at triSearch.

In summary, triSearch's appointment of Chris Gibbs as its new CEO is an exciting development for the company. Gibbs' extensive leadership experience and success in sales and marketing strategy, software-as-a-service, and cloud computing services are sure to benefit triSearch in its next phase of growth. The company's recent market growth and the launch of award-winning conveyancing practice management software, triConvey, have set the stage for triSearch to become one of the most popular conveyancing technology companies in Australia.
