Andy Bird, Chief Executive Officer
Andy began his working career in logistics and procurement, which took him to many parts of the world, including a secondment to Rio de Janeiro at the age of 19. After 3 years he came back to the UK to manage and implement Oracle business systems for a leading Offshore Engineering and Construction company. Following this he moved to Paris to work for an engineering, technologies and project management organisation that service the Oil & Gas industry. This brings Andy’s total experience of working in this industry to over 20 years.
In 2006, Andy founded Inoapps, having identified a gap in the market for Oracle application and technologies for the oil and gas industry. Since then Andy has grown and diversified the company into other industries and geographic locations. He is very proud that Inoapps is now the Oracle Specialized Partner of the Year for Software as a Service, UKI, EMEA and Global 2016. Andy plays a key role in the day-to-day activities of the company and is personally involved at some point during every customer transaction.

These are companies that, through their continued success and ability to manage growth, attract many hundreds of millions of dollars from investors and banks alike.
