Experienced tech founder to join board of award-winning NZ start-up

12 Sep 2014

The Full Suite Ltd (Suite) has appointed Brett Campbell, serial entrepreneur and co-founder of Nintex, the world’s leading provider of cloud-based workflow solutions into a strategic advisory role on its board.

The Full Suite, Microsoft New Zealand’s Start-up Partner of the Year 2012, has developed a platform to deliver file management and productivity tools to small-to-medium businesses around the world.

Developed on top of Microsoft Office365 and leveraging the power of Microsoft Azure, tools such as SuiteFiles and the recently released SuiteFiles for Outlook are transforming the way companies are able to manage this critical part of their business.

With a clear and compelling product strategy, Suite’s founders have sought to bolster their international capability with a board-level appointment. Enter Campbell...

With over 20 years of experience in the IT sector and also as the current Global VP of Sales & Corporate Development for Nintex, Campbell offers unique insight and experience to help build out Suite’s offshore partner channel and US expansion strategy.

“I am excited and honoured to have been invited to join The Full Suite board," Campbell adds. "The team has a great vision and an exciting product roadmap.

“They’ve built a very capable team and already have a track-record of creating smart, well-designed products. I can see huge potential for this business and look forward to contributing to their future direction and growth.”

Campbell's involvement will help to ensure Suite, one of the world’s fastest growing information management platforms for the SME market, will build on its current 15% month-on-month growth trajectory.

“I am delighted to welcome such experience to The Full Suite,” adds co-founder Mason Pratt.

“We’ve gained excellent traction in the local market with much of this success coming as a result of working with technology partners such as Microsoft and Xero.

"Now with our sights firmly set on overseas expansion, having someone of Brett’s calibre on board gives us real confidence.

"Brett brings an incredibly diverse set of skills and expertise and I look forward working with him over the coming months to help make The Full Suite an international success.”

Under Campbell’s leadership, Nintex has significantly grown its partnership channels to support over 5,000 customers across 90 countries.

This experience is vital and aligns directly with Suites already impressive 1,200 users located in New Zealand, Australia, South Africa and the UK.

Nintex was acquired by a consortium of US private equity firms for $US222m in 2012.
