Meet Bigy Koshy, Concirrus’ Financial Controller, who this week is celebrating 2 years with Concirrus...very lucky for us!
Bigy, who was born and bred on a small island in Bahrain moved to the UK via India 16 years ago and never looked back. He now lives here with his wife and the apple of his eye - 15 month old daughter Mikaela - who happened to be Concirrus’ very first baby.
So, we caught up with Bigy to ask him about his two years on board and what he’s looking forward to the most from the next two.
Tell us a bit about your job Bigy…
Working within a start-up, if one day I’m engaging with potential investors, another day I could be building processes to make our financial controls robust. It’s never typical and that’s what I love.
I work within a team of three - our CFO John who flexi works between Concirrus and another technology company, and Michael our Finance Assistant.
What’s kept you coming back for two years?
Like I said, no day is ever the same I also get to work with a wide range of stakeholders and contribute to the company decision making and strategic direction.
What are you most excited about in the next two years?
I am most excited about how the new investors coming into the picture that will take Concirrus to another level. Not only can I see success coming our way but, also for me personally, being part of that success with the wonderful team I work with at Concirrus is an exciting prospect.
What did you do before Concirrus?
This is my 2nd start-up - the last one was Regal Care Homes Ltd where I started my career 15 years back. In between, I worked for a SME and three large organisations. This has given me the best of the technical and commercial experience necessary to contribute to Concirrus' success.
Congrats on recently becoming a Dad! What's your one piece of advice for new parents?
As a father...always listen to your wife/partner...she's always right!
What else can you tell us about yourself Bigy?
I was born and bred on a small Island called Bahrain and moved to the UK via India. I have played football in a scorching 50°C and a chilly –10°C.
