Our leadership

David Walsh, Founder & CEO

David was inspired to create CIM because of the ’black hole’ he observed in the way data was being used within buildings. Companies were data-rich but information poor, and finding or fixing the root cause of wastage was a major challenge. Leveraging his combined experience in computer science, energy efficiency and the property industry, David built an innovative solution to prove the idea that making better use of existing data could improve building performance. Prior to moving to Australia, David worked in Ireland and Germany as a systems engineer Fortune 500 SAP and Intel, and as a director of technical services for a design, building and property company. He has a bachelor of computer science from Griffith College in Dublin.

Throughout his career building SaaS, mobile and on-premises products, Anton has played a role in helping young companies such as Atlassian, SafetyCulture and IRESS and now CIM to grow and shape a business that contributes to improving the environment. As Chief Technology Officer, Anton is responsible for the creation and development of CIM’s award-winning PEAK platform.
