In the ‘Seedcamp Podcast Series’ we talk with key people in the tech startup industry to hear their stories and gleam key advice and learnings from their experiences.
Keith Wallington, Expert in Residence for Seedcamp and ex-Chief Group Officer of Mimecast, joins Carlos for this Podcast to explore key lessons based on his experience helping to operationalise businesses as both a mentor, and internally at Mimecast through his multiple C-level roles. Looking at how these processes can be implemented in different organisations for their own benefit.
Keith has led strategy and execution in digital and technology businesses since the 1990’s: his experience in driving digital business models spans Retail Banking, Telecommunications, Online Live Broadcasting, Software and Software as a Service (SaaS): he has led digital business strategy initiatives for businesses including Microsoft, Standard Bank, Omnicom/TBWA, Truphone and Mimecast.
From 2008 to 2014 Keith spent six years at global email management provider, Mimecast. Here he assumed a number of C Level roles, including COO, spanning most of the business from Marketing to Customer Experience to Technical Operations as he championed scalable, efficient growth. With Mimecast now the largest Cloud based email archiving service globally, Keith refocused his attention in late 2014 to seek out and support businesses in the early stages of significant growth. Keith works with businesses as an executive or non executive director, advisor and/or investor directly and through venture capital funds including Seedcamp, where he is Expert In Residence.
