Martin Fincham

Partner, The Gorilla Factory LLP

Author of “Diary of a Novice NED” After a 30-year career in the technology business, as both an entrepreneur and corporate CEO, I now enjoy a pluralist portfolio life. I am regarded by fellow board members as an expert on both setting the most effective go-to-market strategy and for delivering operational excellence in the modern B2B sales environment. My functional skills include B2B sales, marketing and growth management. I have, for a commercial guy, unusually deep technical expertise, having trained as both a software and hardware engineer, allowing me to talk straight with engineering teams and to connect with brilliant technical founders. My experience ranges from having founded my own software company aged 24, to selling it for a lucrative amount and then working in Silicon Valley for five years, to most recently being CEO of a global software vendor where I increased EBITDA by seven-fold during my tenure. I am an ex-board member and current associate of the Cambridge Angels Network.
