Leading Expansion at GoCardless
Joe is a proven people leader and team builder with a passion for all things start-ups and growth. He specialises in launching new products and services, either as new ventures or existing companies launching in new territories.
As an early member of the London-based GoCardless team, Joe led the Sales Development function for 2 years before transitioning to International Development. He has been instrumental to the company’s growth and success in new territories, leading GoCardless’ expansion into France, Germany and Spain before venturing into Australia and New Zealand.
After a three-month ‘reconnaissance’ mission in 2019, Joe opened GoCardless’ first Australasian office in Melbourne; building the local team and strengthening relationships with major partners such as Xero & Zuora.
Joe laid the foundations for GoCardless’ success down-under, with ANZ becoming the fastest-growing of any international market for the fintech company.
