"The exciting prospect of a varied finance role, resulted in an offer I couldn’t refuse."

Why did you join Appsense?

Upon returning from a year’s work in Australia and 7 months travelling, I was looking for a company where I could take my career to the next level. I was presented with the position at AppSense and following my initial research, I was intrigued as well as impressed. The company has made significant growth over recent years, but has done this in a controlled manner.

The market, in which AppSense is in, has been fully endorsed and backed via the significant investment from Goldmann Sachs.

All of this, combined with the exciting prospect of a varied finance role, resulted in an offer I couldn’t refuse.

What has your career path been at AppSense?

I originally joined AppSense as a Project Accountant. In this role, I was involved in varying different projects across the finance function and the business, ranging from working closely with the CEO providing detailed metrics on business performance to liaising with external consultants on resolving tax issues in Germany.

After 10 months working as a Project Accountant, I was promoted into the role of Finance Manager for the EMEA region. Managing a team of 6 people, I oversee the everyday running of the finance function. Alongside my core duties, I still manage the company’s relationship with our SAP providers and I am involved in a number of projects, as the business continues to grow.

About you (in 120 words max)

Outside of work, I’m very much into my Sports. I’m a keen footballer and for my sins follow Bolton Wanderers down at the Reebok as much as I can. Also, when I get chance, I like a nice round of golf with lads, followed by a few pints at the 19th Hole!

Prior to joining AppSense, I had been travelling for the 7 months and lived in Sydney for the previous 12. Throughout my travels, I visited various places throughout Australasia and Asia. The main stand out areas have to be the Fijian Islands, Outer Mongolia and the deepest darkest Siberia, where temperatures reached a sweltering -40’C.

"With AppSense I found the right mix of size, reach and products."

Why did you join Appsense?

When I was doing my search, I was focused on opportunities with companies doing sync/sharing or MDM/MAM. I also wanted to find an opportunity with a company that was not too early stage / too small. With AppSense I found the right mix of size, reach and products. Most importantly, AppSense has the 3 critical requirements for success: (i) market opportunity, (ii) product, and (iii) people.

What do you like most about AppSense?

The people, and the products.

What has your career path been at AppSense?

I’ve only been here 3 months…so, you’ll need to check back with me on that.

I am passionate about Software and how it is developed, but driven by the commercial application of technology. I have experienced start-up and large blue chip environments and Appsense is a beautiful sweet spot.
