Australian cloud software and product development specialist, Kablamo, has appointed Kirsty Trask as regional manager Melbourne.

Trask joins Kablamo’s national leadership team from Australian SaaS company, Dubber, where she served as senior product manager. She was previously IT and digital projects manager at CrownBet.

In her role, Trask will oversee Kablamo’s growth in Victoria and will be responsible for delivering “exceptional customer experiences” in the region.  

Kablamo co-chief executive Angus Dorney said Trask’s experience in managing high-performance teams and her track record in delivering innovative software-centric solutions made her the perfect fit.

He said that along with software and product development, one of Trask’s key responsibilities would be coaching teams within client organisations to adopt and embrace Agile culture and methodologies.

“I didn’t want to hire someone with just ‘go-to-market’ experience, that’s a dime-a-dozen,” Dorney said. “I wanted someone who was more strategic, had experience with software and product strategy, someone who can lead the customer journey from a blank sheet of paper all the way through to taking a new product to market.”

Trask said the people, culture, and client base attracted her to Kablamo, and she looked forward to championing the push to bring more women into IT as part of her leadership role.  

“Having read about Kablamo and the diverse projects they’ve been involved with, it was clear to me they were very smart people working to solve very real business problems. Kablamo’s founder, Allan, has also been driving thought leadership around artificial intelligence and blockchain, and it was something I wanted to be a part of.”

As a member of the Australian Computer Society’s Women in Victoria Group, and most recently as part of Females in Information Technology and Telecommunications, Kablamo said Trask had encouraged more women to pursue careers in technology.

“I’m passionate about getting more women into the industry and being given a leadership role means I can help develop careers and really push the needle. Importantly, it’s a mission Kablamo strongly believes in, so I know I’ll be supported to make a positive impact,” Trask said. 

Kablamo founder and co-chief executive Allan Waddell, who built Kablamo around teams of “cloud native execution engineers”, said Trask’s product development experience and cultural fit perfectly matched the leader he envisaged would oversee the Melbourne business.

“We wanted someone who not only had the skills, but also the belief in Agile and innovation. Adapting modern technologies and aligning them to the business needs of clients, while bringing them along on the journey, is second nature to Kirsty.

“That’s what makes Kirsty such a great fit – she can tailor cloud technology and cultural change to deliver our customers’ products to market in quick time and at a very high quality.”
