Ben Wylie

Country Coordinator and CFO, North America, UK & IRL

What does your job involve?

After 2 years at Econocom as Chief Financial Officer, overseeing all Econocom’s financial activities in North America, UK and Ireland, I’ve now been appointed the Country Coordinator.
My new role involves coordinating the TMF (Technology Management & Financing) activities, in synergy with TRAMS, focusing on transforming the performance of the UK. I will be working with the team to roll out strategic planning initiatives to help us achieve profitable growth in 2023 and beyond.

What spurs you on each day?

Continuous improvement! It may sound corny, but my role is to ensure the success of the company, by ensuring the success of each and every member of the team that work so hard to deliver the results. We are looking to grow our revenue and improve our profitability at the same time, which is not easy, but I really believe that we have the right team in place to continue to build on historic success, and do what is required of us!

Would you advise a friend to apply for a job at Econocom?

Absolutely! I get to work with a great team of experienced professionals and connect with colleagues across the world. Econocom is a multibillion turn-over listed company that has managed to maintain the values and flexibility of a much smaller organization. We work across industries to provide bespoke solutions to our customers, and this means that every day poses a new and different set of challenges!

Could you tell us a little anecdote to illustrate your work at Econocom?

No two days are the same at Econocom, and my role has changed significantly even over the two years that I have been here. In the morning we can be reviewing the potential acquisitions strategy for the company, at lunchtime looking at a multi-million pound deal with a major retailer and then in the afternoon devising a cash strategy to help meet the targets set.

A leader is best when people barely know they exist, when their work is done they will all say “we did it ourselves”
