Philip Walker has decided to head to the UK after ten years guiding San Francisco tech start ups to join Crowdfunder as its new CFO. Tapped by Software Cornwall, a non-profit company that aims to develop the digital technology community in Cornwall, Crowdfunder UK Director Phil Geraghty commented on the synchronicity,
“Philip is a great fit for Crowdfunder. We are growing significantly and his experience with high growth tech start ups and a deep knowledge of finance and general operations in the sector will further support that growth. We knew joining Software Cornwall would amplify our recruiting message, but the way they helped in Philip’s transition far exceeded our expectations. It’s great to see our community attracting such talented people from all over the world.”
Walker’s name may ring familiar from his involvement with Rocket Lawyer, UniversityNow and PIX System.
“We are delighted to welcome Philip to Cornwall. Software Cornwall aims to help local tech businesses recruit both locally and internationally by attracting, finding, informing and introducing candidates to local businesses with tech vacancies,” added Software Cornwall Director and Co-founder Belinda Waldock. “It’s a simple but very effective solution to help address Cornwall’s tech skills shortage. We are working hard to grow our own tech talent in Cornwall through our ‘learn to code’ programme and we are delighted to welcome Philip’s offer to support the Software Cornwall Community in this.”
