Customer communications outsourcing firm Salmat has appointed former Babcock and Brown CIO David Hackshall as its chief information officer, filling the vacancy left when Aaron Panozza resigned in May 2009.

Hackshall has been entrusted with unifying Salmat's approach to information technology across the company's business process outsourcing, customer contact and targeted media divisions.

"We are currently undergoing major transformation in the organisation and David will play a leading role in shaping the strategic direction of the Salmat Group's technology function," said CEO Grant Harrod, in a statement.

"Salmat is a business with a lot of different parts which we have worked over the past 12 months to bring together under one brand, making the company more customer-interfacing and better understood."

Before Babcock and Brown, Hackshall worked as CIO at event staging firm Staging Connections and general manager of corporate IT at port services firm Patrick Corporation, where he was responsible for deploying the company's PeopleSoft ERP system.

He holds a Masters in Information Technology Management and an MBA from the Macquarie Graduate School of Management.
