Andrew Bassat is Chief Executive Officer, Managing  Director and  Executive Director of SEEK. In 1997,  during the pioneering days of online business, Andrew created the website SEEK with his brother Paul and  friend Matt Rockman. Together they raised a small amount of capital  and  took on the newspaper companies at their own game. Against  all the odds, SEEK managed to completely transform the landscape of employment advertising from print-dominated to online.  SEEK became one  of Australia’s most  successful online businesses, becoming an ASX top 100 listed company with a market capitalisation of $2 billion. It has  expanded to the UK, China,  Brazil, New Zealand and  Malaysia. Andrew was  involved in all development stages of the SEEK business since its inception. He is a director of a number of the group’s fully-owned Australian subsidiaries as well as a director on the majority of the group’s international investments and holding companies. Andrew is also  a director  of the charitable Shane Warne Foundation. Until 1 July 2011 Andrew was  joint CEO with his brother Paul  Bassat, who stepped back  from the day-to-day management of the company. Now Andrew is the sole CEO.  From the early days Andrew has  led SEEK’s Strategy and  Business Development team. Prior to SEEK, Andrew was  a management consultant with Booz Allen Hamilton,  where he was  involved in a wide range of strategic assignments for major Australian and  international corporations. Earlier  on in his career, Andrew  worked  as a solicitor  at Corrs  Chamber Westgarth. Andrew holds  a Bachelor of Science (Computer Science) degree from the University of Melbourne, a Bachelor of Laws (Honours) degree from Monash University and a Master of Business Administration degree  from Melbourne Business School.
