Scott Anderson recently joined Openmarkets as Head of Relationships, bringing many, many years (steady...) of invaluable experience to the team, and an excellent business perspective. Here he is in his own words. We think he’s Great 😉
How do you like your eggs?
Poached, right next to a full English. Like a diet coke with your McDonald’s. It makes me feel healthy.
What do you do (or expect to be doing) at OMG?
I’m the Head of Relationships and have been in this space for almost two decades, working with clients to help grow both of our businesses.
What are you most excited about working on at OMG?
I have only been migration-focused since joining but when I get around to it, I’m looking forward to exploring the gaps and weaknesses in the business (all businesses have them) and improving and strengthening from there.
What’s the coolest thing you’ve seen or heard about recently in technology?
I’m going to embarrass myself. Having worked on project spreadsheets for 20 years, seeing Trello for the first time blew me away… or maybe I’m easily pleased
What’s the best thing you’ve ever invested in?
A backpack to take on my travels to Australia. Not only did I meet my wife here, but when I got back to England it gave me a burning desire to get back and I achieved it! I bought that backpack 25 years ago and have been here permanently for 20.
If you had to sing karaoke, what’s the song, and how does it make you feel?
I’ll confess to singing a Taylor Swift last time I did karaoke. There was alcohol involved and how I felt then and how I feel now remembering it are two different feelings.
What word or words come to mind when you think of OMG?
Dynamic. I have been looking for a fast thinking, creative, technology-focused business and I think I have found it.
