Class Limited, one of Australia’s leading technology companies, has expanded its leadership team with the appointment of Alexis Rouch as Chief Technology Officer.
Rouch has led a distinguished career in technology for more than 20 years. She has held technology leadership roles at AMP, WorkSafe Victoria, ANZ, PwC, Accenture and Medical Media Australia, and holds a Bachelor of Science (Physical Chemistry) and Graduate Diploma in Applied Information Systems.
“I am very excited to be joining a business that is as trusted as Class is in the financial services market,” Rouch said. “Technological development is ever-present but Class’ investment this year as it pivots its business is a compelling reason to become a part of the team. I am looking forward to helping Class design and implement new services and technologies that will enable it to continue to be an invaluable technology partner for its customers.”
Rouch joins Class at a transformative time for the business, as it executes its Reimagination strategy. That strategy will see Class grow into new sectors of the professional services ecosystem as a technology solutions provider. The Reimagination strategy includes an investment of $12m this year on product and technology development, in addition to a growth strategy that include partnerships, investments, and acquisitions where appropriate. Class announced its first acquisition – of fintech documentation platform, NowInfinity – in January.
“As a technology business, we have considered what we require from our technology leadership to not only deliver our current projects, but also as we look to build innovative technology and teams for the future,” Class CEO, Andrew Russell, said. “We have been searching for world-class talent to drive our technology transformation, and I am thrilled that Alexis has agreed to join our team.
“Alexis brings a wealth of technology transformation and leadership experience, and I know she will be a valuable member of the executive leadership team as well as a strategic, innovative and people-focused leader for the technology team.”
