Media Release: Former NSW President of AWA Joins RedEye
RedEye proudly announces the appointment of past New South Wales Australian Water Association (AWA) President, Mark Trembath, as Market Development Manager within their water industry team.
With over 27 years providing solutions within the water sector across the APAC region, Mark will be responsible for strategic engagement and market development of emerging industry verticals for RedEye.
Mark has extensive experience working with water utilities, local government, and large industrial water users, and is heavily involved within the community. He was a member of the NSW AWA committee from 2010-2017, and in July 2013, he was elected NSW AWA President for 2013-2015.
RedEye is an Australian scale-up, making waves in the global asset management space with cloud and web SaaS solutions. Through Mark’s deep understanding of the industry, RedEye will continue to build comprehensive solutions with their clients. Mark started at RedEye’s global HQ in Brisbane on 27 May 2019.
“What I like about RedEye, is that I’ve come across something that’s truly unique. The value proposition is very high, and an Australian start-up is unheard of in this space,” said Mark.
“Digital transformation is something everyone is talking about, many utilities and councils are struggling to take the next step”
“Innovation and digital transformation is written in KPIs but no one knows how to achieve it – there are a lot of mixed messages in the marketplace. As a result, organisations are data rich but information poor. They have all of this data but don’t know what to do with it or how to manage it,” said Mark.
RedEye is reinventing how people work by providing digital engineering solutions for companies that own and operate complex assets. Their cloud-based and mobile-focused Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) platforms offer solutions for asset and work management. All solutions are built with, not built for clients. RedEye provides a single source of truth for all engineering documents.
RedEye clients include Snowy Hydro, BHP, Alinta Energy, SA Power Networks, Transurban, Queensland Children’s Hospital, Queensland Urban Utilities, as well as Southern Nevada Water Authority, which controls the Hoover Dam.
Mark said, “What we’re doing as a cloud-based solution through metadata, providing a single source of truth, RedEye are offering a unique digital solution.
“One of our distinctions is that we’re based here, not in an offshore call centre. Our clients are dealing with real people in real-time, and that’s rare in the industry. We genuinely understand the problem, and that’s important to clients. It’s highly unusual to have a tech company based in Australia with technical and customer support here – it’s unheard of.”
Minister for Innovation and Tourism Industry Development, Kate Jones, said RedEye is a Queensland success story, with some of the world’s leading water utilities, energy and mining companies using RedEye software.
“The firm has grown rapidly from a team of two to a staff of 87 people with clients using RedEye’s software platform to manage over $200 billion of critical infrastructure,” Ms Jones said.
Minister Jones officially opened RedEye’s new Brisbane office at 138 Mary Street on 28 May 2019, and will open RedEye’s new North American head office in Denver on 6 June 2019 during a trade mission in the United States. The company has Europe in its sights for the near future.
RedEye’s CEO and co-founder, Wayne Gerard, said, “Our software solution is having a big impact and last year we raised over $10 million from investors in the United States and Australia (including support from the Queensland Government’s Business Development Fund) to scale our business and co-develop new technology in Brisbane that will be used globally.”
“As our user base is growing, we plan to employ another 20 people in the next six months to meet demand in Australia, the US, and New Zealand, and venture into Europe.
“I hope our growth will inspire more international investors to back Queensland start-ups and inspire start-ups to tackle challenges that will provide solutions for both Queensland and international customers,” said Mr. Gerard.
