Australian-listed data collaboration company Ixup has appointed technology industry veteran Peter Leihn as its new chief executive.

Leihn, who will commence with Ixup in November, has more than 25 years’ experience in senior technology roles, and joins from Data61, the CSIRO specialist data and technology innovator, where he was the global head of commercial based in San Francisco.

He led the commercialisation of Data61’s capabilities in digital and data research, engineering and product development, and also had responsibility for driving Data61’s global growth strategy.

Leihn also held previous leadership roles including as director of the Office of the Chief Scientist for New South Wales, where he led science policy development and had oversight for strategic investment in the innovation ecosystem.

His work at CSIRO followed a long career in the Asia Pacific with Hewlett-Packard and Autodesk.

IXUP chairman and acting chief executive Tim Ebbeck said, “As previously indicated, the Board always intended to separate the roles of Chairman and CEO when business momentum was underway, and an outstanding candidate became available.

“We are delighted to appoint someone of Peter Leihn’s calibre after undertaking an extensive local and international search process. Peter’s domain expertise, leadership, commercial skills, and established industry, government, and international network provide the definitive skill-set to drive the business forward.”
