Finnan sits in O’Connell’s chairs

picSean Finnan, well known in this parish from his time in executive roles at EDS, HP and IBM, has just taken over as chairman at the Boards of two UK tech companies previously chaired by venerable tech entrepreneur John O’Connell; hotel booking engine developer, Avvio, and operations management solutions provider, ActiveOps.

O’Connell had chaired ActiveOps, previously known as AOMi, since the investment by Calculus Capital in 2014 (see AOMi bags £5m to scale the business). ActiveOps was also one of the early participants in the TechMarketView Great British Scaleup programme (see here). Finnan had joined the ActiveOps Board as a non-exec director in 2014. 

Prior to his appointment at Avvio, Finnan had worked with the company in an advisory capacity. 

Both John O’Connell and Sean Finnan are part of TechMarketView Great British Scaleup programme corporate advisory partner, ScaleUp Group, which O’Connell founded and chairs.
