OnBuy teases exciting technological plans as CTO appointed

No primary category set

As part of its mission to deliver an exceptional experience for its customers and its retailers, OnBuy.com will soon be revealing its new and exciting technological plans, full of significant improvements and new integrations. Today the UK-based online marketplace has announced the appointment of Julian Browne, as Chief Technology Officer to drive the campaign forward at pace.

Exciting technological plans

Before we read more about Julian, the big interest has to be the teaser of exciting technological plans. Yes there’s the hint of improvements and new integrations, but there is one thing we’d love to see from OnBuy and that’s a mobile app.

While OnBuy have done a spectacular job of growing sales from zero to become a significant marketplace player, I firmly believe consumers who download an OnBuy app would become even more loyal customers and spend more on OnBuy. If there’s one development I’d like to see an OnBuy shopping app would be what I’m wished for.

Julian Browne

After 30 years of leading tech and product teams to success, Julian is as experienced as they come. As CTO for private equity backed scale-up, Comparison Technologies, Head of Engineering at Hive, and Chief Architect at O2, he proved his expertise in implementing agility, digital and cultural transformations.

Prior to these roles, Julian has held many senior positions spanning the tech industry, all of which have benefitted from his deep technical knowledge, creativity and vision.

We are really excited to welcome Julian to the executive team at such a pivotal time for OnBuy. We have mega plans for the platform in the upcoming months and Julian’s vast experience, expertise, and true visionary mindset, combined with our ambition, will lead and further solidify our commitment to creating the best choice marketplace for retailers and customers alike.

– Cas Paton, Founder and CEO, OnBuy

I feel I’ve joined OnBuy at a significant and exciting point in its journey, as it breaks free of its start-up roots to become a truly major player in the marketplace sector. I’m looking forward to helping scale the business to even greater heights.

– Julian Browne, Chief Technology Officer, OnBuy

Due to its continued growth, as recognised by the FT1000 fastest growing companies in Europe listing, OnBuy has executed a business-wide recruitment drive, seeing a series of important hires. Julian is the most recent senior hire and will be followed by more, as the company continues to scale.
