Today, Ignition is delighted to officially welcome Jackie Brian to the team as Chief Revenue Officer. As a seasoned leader and all round lovely person, Jackie has a proven track record of building deep customer relationships, accelerating growth, and developing high performing teams worldwide. With 20 years of experience in fast growing businesses, the breadth of her background includes:

  • Cloud accounting and payments (Intuit, Visa, OFX)
  • E-commerce (Amazon)
  • Media (Amazon, Seven Network)

Jackie’s industry know-how, depth of digital experience and passion for building and nurturing diverse teams will be an asset as she leads our customer teams into our next phase of growth.

Jackie joins Ignition following our A$26M Series B round, and will play the leading role as we double-down on deepening customer value, and scaling and accelerating revenue growth – globally. We’re helping more than 2,500 accounting and bookkeeping firms manage over 135,000+ recurring engagements every month. With Jackie on board, she’ll oversee the expansion of our marketing and sales capabilities and processes, while continuing to build on our strong foundation of customer love.

For many in the cloud accounting sphere, Jackie is a familiar face. She first became a friend of Ignition when leading Global Partnerships at Intuit. This role enabled Jackie to develop a deep knowledge of the cloud accounting ecosystem, and establish trusted relationships with accountants, bookkeepers and partners worldwide. Hailing most recently from Amazon in Seattle, Jackie led teams in both the Amazon Prime and Alexa businesses – focussed on pricing, paid benefits expansion and content acquisition. Previously, Jackie has held roles as CMO and Head of Product at OFX, and spent 7 years in Singapore as Head of E-commerce for Visa.

Jackie is passionate about building diverse teams and investing in growth and development and regularly mentors a pool of talented individuals worldwide.

When she’s not at work Jackie is a self-confessed gyspy. She regularly surprises her husband and two teenage kids with travel adventures which usually revolve around surf, snowboarding, exotic cultures or food. When possible, Jackie loves nothing more than getting her “feet in the sand” everyday. This has proven to be a little cold and challenging in Seattle where she is currently based so has been temporarily replaced by “hands in mud” – having taken up pottery passionately.

Welcome to the team Jackie, we’re so thrilled you're here!
