Dean Joscelyne

Founder & Executive Director

Dean Joscelyne is an Australian technology entrepreneur who founded IXUP in 2011, taking it from a start-up to a listing on the Australian Stock Exchange in 2017.  He currently manages Strategy and Innovation and sits on the IXUP board.

IXUP’s success is a testament to Dean’s insights into the role data has come to play. He combined business acumen with his vision to find new ways for organisations to derive business-critical insights from their data. The outcome is a patented suite of enterprise solutions that enable organisations to work together on their data in a secure, uniquely encrypted environment.

Dean’s vision fueled his commitment to create a security-focused solution, while his determination and unorthodox approach to problem solving have shaped the way he has successfully addressed some of the thorniest issues facing organisations today: how to safely make the most of the vast data they accumulate, and in line with new and emerging regulatory complexity.

Dean has a proven track record of innovation over the past 25 years. In 2007, he established digital agency Destria, which counted among its clients many leading blue-chip companies in the financial services, telecommunications, IT and pharmaceutical sectors. To meet their needs, Dean sought to develop services over and above the traditional agency practices, including the development of in-house software. During this time, his vision and understanding of customer analytics and business processes led him to develop the first generation of IXUP’s unique technology.
