ABOUT VELOCITY

Velocity is a fast-growing tech platform providing access to the world’s best hospitality and dining experiences.

THE CHALLENGE

Velocity had just built Velocity Black, the world’s first truly digital private members club and we’re in the process of building a complex Enterprise SaaS product. Having raised, at the time, over $39M in funding which was being used to drive growth, Velocity we’re in build and scale mode across both products. As a result they were looking for a seasoned CTO to lead their rapidly growing technology team.

360LEADERS APPROACH

360Leaders mapped the fastest growing consumer technology companies in the UK along with the Tech Giants, who have respected engineers, to find those leading large teams. We presented 7 candidates and closed the search.

THE RESULT

Ijaz Akram has been named the new CTO at Velocity.

Bringing over two decades of technology experience, Ijaz has previously held executive positions within both Microsoft and Amazon prior to working as the CTO for Style.com before their acquisition by FarFetch.

Ijaz will scale the engineering team across multiple global locations as well as ensuring that the technology is positioned effectively to support the continued growth of the business.
