“I was really impressed with Firemind’s approach, always working backwards from the business challenge and then proposing a solution that would solve the problem, rather than trying to force a technology solution.”

Yesterday, we dived straight into our Q & A session with Andy. Here’s what he had to say, as he begins his new role in the business.

Q & A 💬

Hello and welcome Andy to the Firemind team! It’s great to have you with us.

It’s great to be here!

For our viewers, could you please tell us a little about yourself and your professional background?

I’ve spent the last 20 or so years in Enterprise Sales, working for different types of Tech companies, from small startups to large blue chips like Cisco, IBM and Huawei. I spent the last 3 years working at Amazon Web Services (AWS) in Enterprise Greenfield, where my focus was on some of the largest global Enterprises who do not yet have any significant relationship with AWS.

How did you find out about us and what made you decide to apply for a role with Firemind?

I initially heard about Firemind through various colleagues’ interactions at AWS, working with Firemind as an AWS Partner. There was a lot of good feedback! So when I started looking deeper and talking to some key people who knew Firemind well, some of whom had joined Firemind, there was a real meeting of minds. I was really impressed with their approach, always working backwards from the business challenge and then proposing a solution that would solve the problem, rather than trying to force a technology solution.

What is your role at Firemind?

I’m a Senior Account Director, working within the Sales team.

Which areas of our business interested you the most?

The explosion of interest in Generative AI in the last couple years has really caused CXOs to look at business problems in a new light. Firemind is right at the heart of driving this transformation with their customers. The impact that Generative AI can have on the business, in terms of leveraging their own data to inform ‘Next Best Action’, and the speed of transformation that is possible is unparalleled and really exciting.

What will be your main goals/objectives whilst working at Firemind?

To learn more and to work with our customers to transform how they use their own data to accelerate their own businesses.

Which aspects of your role are you most excited about?

Helping to grow our customers’ business.

Outside of work, what do you get up to? Tell us about your hobbies.

I love to cook and to scare myself on my mountain bike. I’m also an avid Chelsea fan and love taking my son to Stamford Bridge (although that feels like a labour of love at the moment).

What’s your favourite song on your playlist right now?

Rinzen – The Alchemist

If you could only choose one dish to eat every meal for the rest of your life, what would it be?

Curry… obviously! 🤣

What is at the top of your bucket list?

Going to see polar bears and icebergs.

What is one skill you would really love to learn?

I used to play the drums when I was at University, but I’d love to play the guitar.

And finally, how do you wind down after work?

Listening to techno and playing with my two dogs.

Fancy a change of scenery?

We’re continuing to grow from strength to strength, expanding our diverse and specialised departments to enable us to work faster, smarter and have more fun along the way!
