Mooven appoints Chief Technology Officer

Bradley Scott joins Mooven as Chief Technology Officer.

Mooven has announced the appointment of Bradley Scott as Chief Technology Officer, effective from Monday 4 October.

Bradley brings considerable experience in leading and scaling technical teams in high growth environments including Fiserv, Xero and most recently as Chief Operating Officer at UneeQ, a high growth SaaS business building digital humans to transform customer experiences.

“We’re on to something special at Mooven with the real ability to help society thrive. I’m thrilled that Bradley has chosen to join us at Mooven for his next challenge, following what has been an incredibly successful career, leading teams in high growth tech companies here in NZ and the US. Bradley is a pivot hire in unlocking the full potential of Mooven.  He brings both experience in scaling international businesses and a deep passion for building outstanding culture – something very important to us” said Micah Gabriels, CEO and co-founder of Mooven.

“From our first meeting, Bradley was quick to go deep into what matters to us most – who we are and what we’re about.  That alignment on our purpose and values, along with a desire to solve the problem we’re tackling is critically important.”

During his time at Xero, Bradley was part of the leadership team that grew the product and engineering function from 200 to 400, and beyond. Prior to joining Xero, Bradley  was based in Atlanta where he led the product management function in the Mobile Solutions division at Fortune 500 fintech company Fiserv.

Bradley will be responsible for positioning Mooven’s Technology function as a competitive advantage that delivers long term value, enables the Company to achieve its ambitious goals across all functions of the business and propel Mooven into our future global state as it grows into a team of 100 and beyond.

When asked what inspired him to join Mooven, Bradley said: “Mooven’s value proposition can transform the way the construction and roading projects are delivered and substantially reduce disruption to commuters and the public. I think this change is overdue and I want to help grow the team that makes that happen”.

“I am looking forward to joining another New Zealand software company that has promising global potential”

Bradley holds a Bachelor of Laws and a Bachelor of Commerce degree.

The appointment comes just 3 months after Mooven’s NZD $5m Series A funding round to fuel the Company’s vision to deliver world-changing infrastructure improvements while minimising disruption.

Mooven has already started accelerating growth and is poised to enter the US market in order to take advantage of what McKinsey defines as a US$57 trillion need for additional spending on infrastructure.

Mckinsey identified that the use of technology to transform infrastructure delivery could provide US$1 trillion per year in savings over the next ten years.  Without these immense savings, McKinsey concluded that it will be incredibly challenging to the US, or other developed countries, to meet their infrastructure needs.

Effectively tackling an opportunity of this size at speed is no small task.  Co-founders Micah Gabriels and Paul McDonnell set out to find a technology leader who had both proven experience designing and rapidly scaling technology functions, and the desire and mindset to create a globally recognised business.

With Bradley joining, co-founder Paul McDonnell will transition into a  Chief Engineer role reporting to Bradley, where he will continue to play an integral role in Mooven’s future.  Mooven will also have Robert Anderson joining the team later this month as Head of Data Science.

Rob is further evidence of Mooven’s commitment to rapid growth and investment in R&D.  He has spent the last 5 years at Data Insight leading Data Science  teams and projects for a range of New Zealand’s top businesses, whilst completing his PHD in Machine Learning.

Mooven was founded in 2017 by Micah Gabriels and Paul McDonnell, with a mission to improve construction project delivery and better mobility outcomes for the public. The platform enables its customers to use data to assist in planning optimum project timelines, project delivery, managing traffic disruption, minimising environmental impact, as well as improving engagement between all project parties involved.

Today, Mooven works with major construction firms and government authorities across Australia and New Zealand to accelerate delivery of major infrastructure projects while minimising impact.
