CEO of Sensis, Mr Bruce Akhurst to address AICC (WA) function in Perth

Complex Sensis’ traditions stretch back to the creation of the first telephone book in 1880. For the next 114 years, Australia’s directories leader focused on the publication of the White Pages® and Pink Pages (later Yellow Pages®) print directories. But with the advent of the web and the launch of the world’s first online directories in 1994, things began to change – and change fast.

Technology has given people an enormous amount of choice in the way they search for information. Sensis’ focus has been on providing people with that choice while balancing small business’ need for a simple way to reach buyers wherever they are searching. CEO of Sensis, Mr Bruce Akhurst will address the Australia Israel Chamber of Commerce in W.A. (AICC WA) on the morning of Thursday 12th of May at the Burswood Entertainment Complex.

Mr Bruce Akhurst assumed the role of Sensis CEO on 1 January 2005. In Telstra, the Sensis CEO position is of Group Managing Director (GMD) level and, as such, Bruce reports directly to the CEO of Telstra, and is a member of the Telstra Chief Executive Officer’s Leadership Team. Bruce is Chairman of the Foxtel board, a director of Soufun Holdings Limited and Chairman of Sequel Limited. He will address the AICC (WA) on the way that technology has given people an enormous amount of choice in the way they search for information.

Mr Akhurst said, “By constantly innovating and evolving its services to make them more relevant to users and available in more places, Sensis helps make marketing easy and delivers real, measurable business leads to Australian businesses. I’m looking forward to sharing with a Perth audience what our vision of the Digital Media Revolution”.

CEO of AICC (WA) Mr John Cluer said, “AICC (WA) is proud to have Bruce address the Chamber as part of our Innovation Series.”
