We have a highly skilled, experienced and diverse workforce at AQMetrics. Today, we introduce you to our COO and Head of Compliance, Claire Savage.
COO and Head of Compliance.
Describe your job in three words:
Busy, diverse, focused.
What is the most exciting thing you are working on?
I love to work with new customers. Bringing on new customers is always the most exciting thing for any scaling company.
How has your background helped with your role in AQMetrics?
I have been in fintech since 1999 (I am a veritable fintech dinosaur), working across fraud, surveillance and compliance solutions for card processors, banks and, now, asset managers. I actually used to work with both Geraldine, our CEO, and Steve, our CTO, at BAE Systems in the Applied Intelligence division.
I’ve seen first hand how technology has changed over the last 18 years, and how the buying patterns have moved from ownership to subscription models. And I have survived a few dotcom crashes along the way!
Best thing about working in AQMetrics?
We have amazing customers, we build great products, and we support each other. As a team, we always find time to laugh, even if it is over Zoom these days.
Who would you most like to swap places with for the day and why?
Jeff Bezos. I would be intrigued to see how different his ‘big company’ scaling challenges are.
Last book you read?
American Dirt by Jeanine Cummins.
Websites you visit the most?
Twitter, Houzz (interior design) and I am an AirBnB addict. Browsing AirBnB is how I like to relax in the evenings.
Tell us something we don’t know?
I studied mechanical engineering in UCD – but I was originally destined to be a dentist. A lucky escape there, perhaps.
