Nuix searches for CEO with 'global' skill set, pushes on with $1b IPO plans - AFR - Jan 12 2017

Forensic software firm Nuix has begun a search for a new chief executive with a "global IPO skill set", all but confirming plans to pursue a public listing in 2017 that may deliver the ASX a new $1 billion-plus technology company.
 
The move comes at the same time as the company has appointed cyber security expert and former US ambassador to Australia, Jeffrey Bleich, to its board, signalling a greater focus on its cyber products.
 
The company, which was founded in 2000 by a team of computer scientists and last year was instrumental in the Panama Papers investigation by providing the technology that was used to analyse the documents, is expected to be worth more than $1 billion when it lists.
