Market intelligence firm appoints high-profile CFO

Market intelligence technology company Talent Ticker has appointed a high-profile chief financial officer to spearhead its ambitious growth plans.

Last week, Andrew Cochlin joined the Cardiff-based company from Polecat and will leverage his experience in growing SaaS technology businesses.

Andrew said: “I have joined Talent Ticker recognising that this new company has unique opportunity to develop and deploy an innovative solution into such a large industry market.
“Recruitment and HR tech is slowly catching up in the speed and innovation that other industry sectors have enjoyed for some time and I believe that Talent Ticker can be right at the front of the innovation.”

With a background in strategic financial and company operations, he will help Talent Ticker fulfil its mission of becoming the first talent acquisition specific predictive market intelligence platform in the world.

Founded in 2018, Talent Ticker combines human intuition and machine intelligence to enable smarter decisions across the financial services industry.

“There is a fantastic team in place at Talent Ticker.   The quality of the members already assembled at such an early stage company is remarkable and I’m excited to both add to and learn from my new colleagues,” he continued.

“Finally, and this is perhaps a more personal driver, it’s great to see a Cardiff/Welsh based technology company innovating and creating something so unique.  There is a growing ecosystem of technology entrepreneurship in South Wales and I’m glad to be part of it with Talent Ticker.”

Nick Vaughan, CEO of Talent Ticker, added: “Andrew is an exciting hire for us at Talent Ticker. Like Talent Ticker he is ambitious and has a focus on sustainable, long term growth.

“We will only achieve our goal by hiring the best talent and producing the best results. The hiring of Andrew is just one of the ways in which we are establishing ourselves as a key market player, and setting ourselves up to become a world-class predictive market intelligence platform for sales professionals.”
