Mooven appoints former Uber Eats and fintech sales leader Nick Walsh

Nick Walsh, Account Executive at Mooven

Construction tech platform Mooven, announced it has appointed Nick Walsh as account executive based out of New South Wales (NSW). Nick Walsh primarily will be responsible for accelerating customer growth across Australia’s eastern states. Walsh offers a strong resume of start-up and fast-growing tech company experience, with sales roles at Uber Eats in its early days launching into Australia, Lightspeed (formerly Kounta), eBev, and Hubster.

What were Walsh thoughts on the new role?

He joins from fintech Deferit, where he led a sales team and was responsible for partnerships strategy. “More often than not, the cars we drive in today boast the latest user tech and have been built in factories backed by analytics for smarter operations. But the infrastructure our lives run on hasn’t been as quick to realise the benefits of smarter tech,” said Walsh.

“Mooven works closely with all the parties involved in roading and public transport, and we’re primed to help them evangelise technology, bringing the right data closer to decision makers to leap ahead and change the economics of how projects are delivered,” Walsh further said.

What is the market offering of Mooven?

Mooven provides operational teams with the ability to accelerate infrastructure delivery while minimising disruption to local communities. This is achieved by delivering data-backed insights that show the real-time impacts of construction work, like traffic congestion or noise pollution, allowing teams to plan smarter and adjust when needed. Walsh will report to Mooven’s co-founder and CEO Micah Gabriels, who is also leading the firm’s U.S. expansion.

Commenting on hire, Gabriels said, “Australia has embarked on an ambitious and world leading infrastructure plan that is seeing its major cities and centres transform, with significant investment in public transportation. This is an exciting time and will set the country up for future success, however the process can be inefficient. Nick’s experience, energy and deep curiosity make him uniquely placed to help drive new and smarter ways of working.

The announcement follows two recent senior appointments. Auckland-based principal engineer Marina Goldburt joins from Auror with a 20-year career in software development, and product design lead Gavin Cammell, also based in Auckland, draws on more than 10 years of experience in user experience design roles with his last stint at edtech Storypark.
