Before joining Nuix, Treese served in a variety of leadership and business development roles at Dun & Bradstreet. He has extensive experience growing key clients and industries including technology, telecommunications, retail, transportation, manufacturing, insurance, and the public sector.
Treese takes over the CEO—Americas role from Kent, who remains the company's Global Head of Security & Intelligence. Kent will now be focused on growing the company's Security & Intelligence business worldwide and preparing to launch the Nuix Insight range of cybersecurity products in 2017.
"We've been working for nearly three years on building the Nuix Insight products in parallel with making the Nuix Engine a massively scalable investigation platform," said Kent. "Those capabilities combined will revolutionize the way investigations are conducted because they'll make it possible to search and examine the context of digital evidence from petabytes of data. Our ability to extract intelligence is the key that has been missing in law enforcement and government investigations—and no other technology in the world can do that."
Treese is also a Director of the BrightFocus Foundation, a nonprofit organization that supports research and provides public education to help eradicate brain and eye diseases including Alzheimer's disease, macular degeneration, and glaucoma.
"I'm very excited to be joining Nuix at this pivotal moment in its evolution and I'm looking forward to helping the company grow its business across the Americas," said Treese. "I really admire Nuix's commitment to social good and giving back to the community. I was blown away to learn that Nuix's Proof Finder initiative has raised more than $350,000 and helped build schools and libraries and support girls' education in India, Laos, Nepal, and Sri Lanka."
