Aussie business consultants marketplace brings on first CMO

Former Neopost Shipping and Temando marketer joins two-sided marketplace for all things business and project management

Home-grown freelance business management marketplace, Expert360, has hired its first VP of marketing to help accelerate its regional presence.

Hamish Grant was most recently the VP of marketing for technology company, Neopost Shipping, where he was responsible for supporting the company’s corporate transformation and global go-to-market plans.

He boasts of 12 years of global professional experience including a stint at shipping and fulfilment software player, Temando, where he helped drive 794 per cent year-on-year growth, a milestone that saw the company recognised in Deloitte’s Tech Fast 50 and its user base grow to 60,000 people. Neopost Shipping acquired a majority stake in Temando in 2015.

Expert360 CEO, Bridget Loudon, said Grant brought extensive professional and marketing knowledge to his role and highlighted his global experience across the UK, US and New Zealand as invaluable.

“We’ve undergone exponential growth in the last four years and our forecasted trajectory shows no signs of slowing down,” she said. “Grant’s appointment will serve to further accelerate traction across the APAC market and cement our position as a category leader.”

Expoert360 also recently brought on former LinkedIn head of relationship management SMB and mid-market, Sally Carr, as its VP of sales for the region.

Expert360 run an online marketplace for sourcing freelance project management consultants globally. Users post briefs on the site describing what they’re after, as well as a guide on budget, and are matched to suitable consultants also signed up to the marketplace based on skills and industry experience. The site lists strategic consulting, HR, digital marketing, accounting and finance and deal advisory as example of the types of skills you can access via the site.

The online forum was founded in Australia by ex-Bain & Company consultants in 2013 and claims to have a vetted pool of more than 19,000 freelancers and firms available via its platform.

“I met Bridget a few years ago and was impressed by her ambition for the company and am excited to be a part of this next stage of growth," Grant told CMO. "It’s an incredibly exciting time for the business who is defining an entirely new product category.”

“The rise of the freelancer is the biggest macro shift since the industrial revolution. As the gig economy grows, how enterprise companies source, engage and manage freelancers will change the fabric of our society."

Predicting the Future: Marketing science or marketing myth?

Unicorns, the Sunken City of Atlantis, Zeus: They are very famous. So famous in fact, that we often think twice about whether they are real or not. Sometimes if we talk about something widely enough, and for long enough, even the strangest fiction can seem like fact. But ultimately it is still fiction - stories we make up and tell ourselves over and over until we believe.
