Healthera appoints e-commerce technologist Jun Seki as CTO
Healthera is pleased to announce that Jun Seki has been appointed as its next Chief Technology Officer.
Jun Seki was previously Chief Technology Officer at Poq, a London-based e-commerce startup which he co-founded in 2012. Poq provided a SaaS platform for high street retailers to offer fully customisable shopping and customer engagement mobile apps. Over his seven years at Poq, Jun has led the team to build a scalable platform that launched apps for dozens of household brand-name retailers like Holland & Barrett and House of Fraser, reaching millions of consumers and helping retailers generate hundreds of millions of revenue.
Over the course of several rounds of funding, Jun helped Poq win numerous awards including Deloitte U.K. fastest-growing company twice in a row and scale to over 100 employees across the UK, USA and Bulgaria, driven by a strong engineering culture.
This draws clear parallels to Healthera, which provides a platform to digitise healthcare retailers. The search, which took many months, eventually landed on Seki for his technical domain expertise and relevant company scaling experience.
“I was impressed by what the team at Healthera has achieved so far. The way that the platform Healthera has developed for patients and healthcare providers work in an ecosystem is unique in the industry and leads to a multitude of possibilities for future expansion. I am excited by the challenge of working with this passionate team to achieve the next level of market domination.” said Jun.
“I am very pleased that Jun is joining Healthera at this important stage in our development. His experiences in scaling up technical infrastructure and leading multinational teams to deliver solutions for both enterprises and consumers will be invaluable for driving our product roadmap to the next level,” said Healthera CEO Quintus Liu.
Prior to co-founding Poq, Jun Seki has led software development teams at corporates, banks and the Australian government. He holds a B. IT from Australian National University.
