What’s your name and what do you do at Liberis?
My name is Tom Taylor and I’m the Head of Analytics at Liberis.
What makes you proud to work here?
It’s a great product that serves merchants well and supports businesses that aren’t being adequately supported by the banks. I’m also surrounded by great people – all pushing for the success of the business and our customers.
What are your stand-out memories of working at Liberis so far?
I think the biggest and most obvious memories are how the business reacted to the start of the pandemic and the onset of lockdowns across the countries we serve. That process where we had to essentially change the entire business overnight and where we were suddenly operating in a completely different environment was an amazing thing to play a part in – and a testament to the quality of the people, the business, and the actions we took, that we were able to support our customer base so effectively during that time.
Since working here, what ways have you developed – personally and/or professionally?
I joined Liberis 5 years ago as a first-rung analyst – so pretty much the entirety of my professional skillset has been developed here! I’ve had the opportunity to grow with the business and benefit from those tailwinds, which has played a massive part in my development across the board.
What makes Liberis different from anywhere else you’ve worked?
Great people who desire to push forward and do a fundamentally great job – coupled with a lack of bureaucracy + heaps of trust from senior management mean it’s very easy to be effective here.
What do you look forward to most in Liberis’ future?
The point at which we become the dominant player in the SME funding business..!
