Sekuro is also announcing the signing of Athena Home Loans, IntelligenceBank and the University of Wollongong as new customers under the Sekuro brand umbrella, which has been operational for only four months.

The company has increased its team size by more than 20 per cent to service new clients by strengthening its executive team ahead of the 2022 growth following the recent client wins.

In addition to welcoming a number of new clients, Sekuro has continued to expand its solutions into existing clients such as Reece Plumbing, Atlassian, and state government departments in NSW, Victoria and Queensland.


Trent Jerome has been appointed as the company’s first chief financial officer. He joins Sekuro from his position as CFO of Identitii Ltd and brings almost a decade of experience as the CFO of various companies including ingogo, Evolt, and SafetyCulture. Prior to those, Trent spent nearly 10 years at AAPT as group financial controller and director of M&A.

Sekuro has also appointed Jeff Sheard as sales director. Jeff has been the enterprise business lead at Pure Storage for the past five years, having previously held senior roles at Cisco, HPE and Avaya.

Noel Allnutt has been promoted to the position of managing director. Previously, Allnutt was Sekuros chief sales and strategy officer.

The reinforcement of the executive team with highly experienced leaders sets up Sekuro for continued and significant growth in 2022, Allnutt, Sekuros new managing director has noted.

"It’s been an exciting first quarter for the Sekuro team.

"Since launching the brand, we’ve seen continued double-digit revenue growth – surpassing our initial expectations, with a really strong trajectory for 2022," Allnutt said.

"In welcoming Trent and Jeff, we make deeper inroads into strategic digital transformation programs for some of Australia’s most innovative organisations."

Allnutt continued that building out the executive team with such talented and experienced leaders is the strongest signal they can send that they are prepared for accelerated growth for the year ahead and beyond.

"We’re seeing a lot of demand from organisations looking to think about cyber security in a new way," Allnutt added.

Staff numbers have grown nationally too. The company has increased the size of its team by more than 20 per cent in four months, with nearly 30 additional roles actively being recruited across the business, with plans to open a second office in Perth later this year to service customers on the West Coast.

On being appointed as Sekuro’s chief financial officer, Jerome noted that he is looking forward to the journey and supporting the business in its next phase of growth.

"Sekuro is doing amazing things and going from strength to strength," Jerome said.

"I’m excited to become a Sekurion!"
