As Mav3rik expands, it’s crucial we fortify and expand our sales team to reach and provide Salesforce solutions to our ever-growing customer base. Jon is passionate about cultivating a strong sales team and he is also a great mentor and an excellent cultural fit for our team,” said Sean Finucane, Co-Founder at Mav3rik.

Commenting on his new challenge, Gamble said: “Mav3rik is a very exciting organisation, going through an incredible cycle of growth. The team are among the smartest, most creative people I’ve seen anywhere in my career. The deep expertise in public sector and health, combined with a genuine and heartfelt focus on the human side of business and technology really sets Mav3rik apart in the industry.”

Meanwhile, fellow Salesforce recruit Valérie Raffa has joined the cloud consultancy and solutions group as Leader of the Health & Life Sciences practice.

Raffa brings with her extensive experience in implementing large enterprise systems for a range of organisations, most recently as Lead Solution Engineer and Senior Program Architect at Salesforce. Previous to her almost four years at Salesforce, she worked in senior architect and management roles for Capgemini, Deakin and KPMG.

James Neave, Mav3rik’s Head of Services and Industries, said: “Valérie’s deep knowledge of the Salesforce ecosystem and her passion for the healthcare and life sciences industry make her an excellent fit for Mav3rik during this exciting growth phase. She has helped several customers to design technology solutions that provide better services for people around the world and she is a fantastic cultural fit for our diverse and ambitious team.”

“I was immediately drawn to Mav3rik because I see alignment with my personal values and most importantly, alignment with the contribution I want to make in the industry,” said Raffa.

“Mav3rik brings much needed change and innovation to an industry that is constantly being disrupted socially and economically. It will take more than just technology to bring equity into healthcare and life sciences – it starts with the people. I am super excited to start this new chapter of my career at Mav3rik and look forward to working with our customers.”

Sydney-headquartered Mav3rik was founded in 2017. The IT consultancy currently has around 80 staff.
