Experience

Over the last 5 years, Sameer has shown how to pivot business models around data. He has added revenue streams and shown start-ups and SMEs how to monetise data. While working for Gocompare, he was part of the team using data to expand into non-insurance propositions which within two years formed a significant part of Gocompare’s revenue streams. Sameer is a very skilful communicator and his ability to tell a compelling story to investors has also resulted in opening doors and investment for start-ups who are looking to scale. He has been involved in investment rounds for four start-ups and is on the Board of three other organisations.

He can see things which others can’t see and has embedded data and digital in the decision architecture of various companies in order to make them more efficient and commercial success. He has reinforced current business models in start-ups and established organisations through data and digital led practice and has driven business growth by using data as a strategic asset.
