After being the Verimark FD for seven years, and having been with the company since 2015, Bryan Groome has decided that a change in career was needed. At the end of March, he announced that he would be leaving Verimark to become the new Reflex Solutions CFO.

However, the tech industry has always interested Bryan, and he decided it was time to learn something new. The classroom? Reflex Solutions.

He explains that he is looking forward to the new role. “It’s a very different industry than what I’m used to, which is exciting. I think being able to implement learnings from the past into a different environment is going to be what I am most interested to see.”

Bryan says the role will have a strategic element to it, explaining, “The CFO role is changing every day, so the need to adapt and change the way you think is critical. But it all starts with alignment of the strategy.” He also hopes to bring a commercial element to the CFO role.

But first, he plans to get to know the business.
