What have you learned from 2022 that will guide you into 2023?
When done right, developing new partnerships with people and institutions who are smart, motivated, friendly and supportive across the financial markets can be truly game-changing. For us and those we work with it represents a tangible opportunity for all involved to make cash investing and liquidity provision better than ever. The stand-out moment for me has been working closely with the London Stock Exchange to make smart cash investing accessible to all. Adding their well-deserved, impeccable reputation, in addition to their leading position in sustainable finance and data, to the TreasurySpring platform will no doubt be a big driver for growth and positive disruption in 2023.
Can you share a memory from 2022 that left you feeling inspired?
We are very fortunate to have attracted some fantastic people into the business again this year, and this is certainly true of the product team. Playing a small role in the development of these great folk and helping them to maximise their vast potential is highly rewarding. Seeing them take on ever more responsibility, with style, adding genuine traction to building out new product features swiftly and diligently, has been brilliant. I’m still inspired to be a force for good and a positive additive to our fun and friendly culture, but have also come to realise that perhaps not all of my jokes are funny. Ultimately, watching our product-market fit come together and scale rapidly is hugely satisfying to see and is backed by the continued prudence we have applied to growth and investment. Save the exuberance for well-deserved holidays!
What are your most important objectives for 2023?
Continuing to stay close to our clients and counterparts to deliver meaningful, robust and market-leading solutions which I hope will continue to earn their trust and investment. Growing the platform and product offering to remain the number one choice in cash, regardless of what 2023 and beyond throws at us, curveballs and all. More broadly ensuring the team are happy, being challenged in the right ways, doing meaningful work, developing themselves as well as the business and in true TreasurySpring style having fun along the way.
What is going to rock your working world in 2023?
Seeing what this amazing group of people, united by a shared ambition can achieve and in so little time. No doubt we will be bringing in new talented folks from diverse backgrounds to further empower the collective ambition to deliver the best cash management platform the world has ever known. Personally, being a late entrant to the remote working lifestyle over the summer vacation, blending tanning with trading is a real contender, albeit of course in second place!
