My name is Matt Jones; I am currently COO for a category-leading UK based SaaS business responsible at the board for Product, Development, Operations and Support.
I am one of only a handful of proven, serial and UK-based cloud technology executives. I have a track record and reputation for resolving tough problems and bringing order to chaos. I especially enjoy creating and growing business functions and helping to develop the people I lead. I am unflappable in the pursuit of success, and this has allowed me to remove obstacles to product delivery for some of the largest UK-based, cloud business success stories in recent years. These were MessageLabs, Mimecast and recently NewVoiceMedia; which sold to Vonage for $350m in October 2018. With SaaS at my core, I understand what needs doing across technology and operational functions to allow subscription-based businesses to grow cleanly and succeed.
As a CTO/COO hybrid, I am highly collaborative and comfortable operating at all levels; I thrive on the strategic planning challenges of a business as much as I do on those of an individual.
Wolfen Consulting is a vehicle for external work I undertake; either professional advice and consultancy or individual coaching and career development.
Engagements are either short term or long-running and low impact, for a select number of businesses and individuals each year.
