Adweb appoints former Hitwise CEO as executive chairman

To focus on expansion of Intranet Dashboard across international markets, particularly North America

By CBR Staff Writer

Former CEO of Hitwise Andrew Walsh has joined Melbourne software house Adweb Agency as executive chairman. 

In his new role with Adweb, Mr Walsh will focus on the expansion of the company’s software offering Intranet Dashboard (iD), across international markets with a focus on North America. Launched in 2004, Intranet Dashboard (iD) is an intranet, extranet or portal offering that is currently used by over 800 companies worldwide including Shell, Audi, Jetstar and Panasonic. 

Mr Walsh said: “I was attracted to iD because it’s a proven product with a global customer base, has existing profitability and a great team on board, which combine to give it a very solid base to build from. 

“iD’s ability to scale from SOHOs to multinationals and be delivered in a host of different languages makes its addressable market every organisation with employees globally, he explained. “When you think about it this way, the opportunity for growth is significant. 

Reportedly, Mr Walsh will be working closely with the company’s existing partner community in Australia, New Zealand, the UK and the US to understand the opportunities that exist for this channel. 

Before joining Hitwise, Mr Walsh held the position of COO with ASX listed internet company Sausage Software Limited from 1992 to 1996. In addition to his current role as executive chairman with Adweb, he also sits on the board of ASX listed Melbourne IT. 

Connie Pandos, co-founder and director of Adweb, said: “We’ve achieved a lot in our 14 years but have big aspirations for the future, so it’s incredibly exciting to have someone with Andrew’s experience and terrific sense of judgment on the team to help us carve out this new chapter.
