Leading the pack is a team of six clever Flickers with some seriously lofty goals. But here at Flick, we don't really do hierarchy.
Our senior management team are the t'shirt-wearing, dad-joke-cracking, sit-amongst-the-pack-with-crumbs-all-over-the-desk type, which means they're right in the thick of customer feedback and can recognise an opportunity to do things better when they see it. We love 'em, and we reckon you will too.
Steve O'Connor: CEO, AKA The Chief Flicker
"Flick was born out of our frustration with the traditional electricity retailing model. We’re built from the ground up to help our customers get the best out of New Zealand’s excellent electricity generation system. Game on."
Steve has been helping disruptive ideas become great businesses for more than 20 years, including 5 years as CEO of Creative HQ, Wellington’s business incubator. He knows how tough it is to challenge conventional ways of doing things.
Jessica Venning-Bryan: Look good, feel good
"We have an incredible opportunity to help New Zealanders understand electricity and demand more from the market. Knowledge is power!"
Chief Marketing Officer, Jessica has spent almost two decades advising organisations on how to engage people with their products and services. From beer to wind farms, elections to employment, she's delivered projects in New Zealand, Australia, the United States and the UK.
Jurjen Geerts: Counts the pennies
"It’s a privilege to be part of a business that’s making sense of all those numbers for real people who just want more control of their own spending. See, numbers can be fun!"
The numbers guy as Chief Financial Officer, Jurjen has been using his BCA and MBA at the sharp end of energy innovation for the past decade. And it’s not just dollars and cents; it’s kilowatt hours, location factors, demand charges, the works.
Simon Pohlen: Thinks in 1s and 0s
“The industry’s stuck in the digital dark ages - someone needs to fix it!"
Simon has had a diverse career spanning development, data analytics, advertising, marketing and digital. He has a MSc in software engineering and has worked with tech for over 25 years. He’s our Chief Technology Officer and is a super-fan of open source technologies, disruption and trying new stuff.
Nikki Bloomfield: Wigs and gavels
“Markets must have leading edge companies that aren't afraid to fight the good fight. Flick is here to advocate for customers and push the industry to change.”
Our Chief Legal Officer, Nikki has more than a decade's legal experience in the electricity industry, having previously held legal roles at Powershop and Meridian Energy Limited. She has advised on a wide range of strategic projects from generation construction to finance transactions.
Nick Hearn: Aggressively friendly
"First and foremost, it's all about our customers. What we're doing here at Flick is ensuring that all Kiwis can live well, and have access to a fair deal on their power, that suits their needs."
The ultimate people person, Nick has led teams, both in local and international markets, towards outstanding, customer-focused achievements. He firmly believes in the big picture as our Chief Operating Officer, and harnessing the absolute potential of his people to create an easy, enjoyable and satisfying experience for customers.
