Over the last 6 years Melbourne-based digital marketplace operator Envato has grown from a start up to a fully fledged business. And the finance function has grown along with it. The finance function’s requirement to keep pace with the company’s speed of operation has meant adopting principles from the leading edge of finance innovation, as well as some from the company’s own development team.
Sigal Pilli joined Envato as Chief Financial Officer in 2011. She shared some of these valuable principles in a previous blog post.
At the Finance Innovation and Tech Fest in 2017 she shared the Envato finance team’s full story of growth, as well as some practical considerations for others looking to establish and grow a finance function in a fast evolving company.
“I was the second person in the finance team, and we are about 30 today,” Pilli says. “Because it was a small business they made do with whatever they had. But today we are covering huge ground compared to what finance used to do back then.” ~ Sigal Pilli, CFO at Envato
