Farfetch

Farfetch has grown enormously over the past 18 months, and nowhere is this more apparent than in Helder’s Engineering function. This has grown from one to five engineering offices, and from 210 to 560 internal engineers.

This expansion has driven, and will continue to drive, the continuous developments in tech – across all areas, including architecture and data – that Helder sees as key to Farfetch’s success. When organisations scale the way that Farfetch is currently, Helder sees it as necessary to ‘throw away the rulebook’ – creating the sort of rapid iterations that have, for example, driven a 30% increase in commitment delivery rates.

Revolut

Revolut is one of Europe’s fastest growing FinTech companies, becoming a Unicorn in two and a half years, having not spent any money on marketing.

Chad joined the company in 2017 to drive brand awareness and growth. He set his own strategy, to build a community of excited and engaged customers.

Chad sees Revolut as the ‘rebels of finance’, taking on the corporate banks with loud stunts, humanising content and using emotional marketing via gifs and emojis.

Chad has put the customer first in Revolut’s approach, polling new product names and organising local events which has led to the customers becoming their main marketing source; they share their experiences and engage with the ‘Rev Academy’, a blog Chad created to break down financial jargon for people from any demographic to relate to.
