Pete Joannidi

About:

A proud Bristolian with 25+ years of work experience across many industries, Pete’s last job is the one we’re most impressed with – Trunki, the ride-on-suitcase maker. And yes, we immediately said ‘wish they made an adult-sized one’ – those are the rules. He’s well qualified for the CFO role, but you just want to know what he’s like outside of work, don’t you? Well, he’s a treasurer of a Rugby club and spends loads of time watching his beloved Bristol Bears with his son. He’s a foodie, equally happy eating in a restaurant as cooking at home and foraging for mushrooms. He’s also well-travelled, with more than 50 countries ticked off his list already. You’re never short of topics to chat about with Pete. He’s basically the perfect dinner guest!

Gemma Glover
About:

Gemma is our only Head of People & L&D and so (by default), the best. As a previous Head of Operations in Cyber Security, with a real passion for workplace culture, her brain is a melting pot of solving business problems, employee experience magic and learner-centric initiatives. When she’s not forcing the team to bond or championing reflection and feedback you will find her killing houseplants, catching her knees on stationary objects and watching admittedly terrible television.

Superpower

Being a fun sponge by interrupting the creative team’s idea sessions to impose metrics, ROI and evaluation models.

Nathan Konstantino
About:

Remember that scene from The Wolf of Wall Street? You know the one, with Matthew McConaughey and the chest-thumping? Well, that is kinda like our latest recruit Nathan, but with less day drinking and chest slapping. Although he is partial to a beer. Nathan is our super (hot) sales lead. His mission? To supercharge our growth and run the sales arm of iAM. As a veteran of customer-facing roles, he understands what’s important to building deep and sustainable customer relations. What does he do in his spare time you ask? Apart from re-watching Wolf of Wall Street? It’s Mars Bars. He’s all about deep frying them. Other credentials include: helping build the Olympic park, cooling the London stock exchange, helping build Jags and Bentleys and helping Amazon and Coca-Cola find their perfect match. We think you’ll agree this is a pretty eclectic career. When he’s not working he is either playing, coaching or watching football and being Dad to his 3 boys.

About:

Nik’s biography reads like a dating profile. Y’know; “Nik is a great listener - always there to help solve problems and offer advice.

Fact is, Nik is your ideal partnership manager - he’s got the credentials and swagger to back it up. He’s also a jack of all trades - when he’s not building lasting relationships, you’ll find this family man taxiing his daughter around or watching sports, including his beloved Aston Villa.

In her spare time, Lauren’s a great cook and loves a glass of wine, so she fits right in here.

Don’t drink and drive, kids!). Olli used to brave the cold and rain in his rugby-playing days, but spending time with friends and listening to podcasts is a much more pleasant way to get ‘chilled’.

She’s got some powerful experience in the role, crafting content and campaign management with other top companies.
