Job management platform provider Fergus has appointed David Holmes as chief executive to spearhead the company’s growth in Australia and beyond.

Holmes, with 20-plus years’ experience in the digital industry across Asia Pacific, was part of the team to launch eBay in 1999 in Australia, and helped found and grow Australian digital agency, Isobar. 

Holmes was instrumental in growing CarAdvice from #8 to #1 in new car audience in Australia and then selling it to Nine Entertainment. He also sits on the board of HR SaaS platform JXT and global social commerce platform Tell Me Group as chairman. 

Fergus chairman Howard Leibman says Holmes’ appointment comes at a time when trades businesses globally are recognising the need for technology solutions to drive greater operational efficiencies.

“David's experience building teams and expanding go-to-market capabilities compliments Fergus’ longstanding product leadership. Under his direction we look forward to continued market share growth in Australia and beyond."

Fergus was established by Dan Pollard, plumber turned tech entrepreneur and former chief executive.

“We’ve reached a point where we need someone like David to take the reins. We want to help even more trades businesses globally and he brings a growth focus that will allow us to do just that,” Pollard said.

“My job now is to continue to represent the tradie within Fergus and help David as much as I can.”
