A New Zealand trades entrepreneur who achieved global acclaim for her UK-based business has joined the board of fast-growing job management software company Tradify.

Anne Timpany, who was recognised as one of the UK’s top female entrepreneurs for 2020 will bring invaluable experience and depth of knowledge about trades businesses to the Tradify team, chief executive Michael Steckler said.

Tradify offers a unique, end-to-end job management app, designed especially for trades businesses, that simplifies customer enquiry management, quote creation, job scheduling, job management, invoicing, and payments. The company’s mission is to help tradespeople reduce their admin time and get their nights and weekends back.

Timpany spent the past 16 years in the UK, during which time she co-founded and built up a large-scale trades business in London. During that time she received recognition for her business achievements, including winning the prestigious National NatWest Everywoman Award in 2017, being named in the 2018 Great British Entrepreneur Awards, and making F:Entrepreneur’s list of top female entrepreneurs. She is also a Freeman of the City of London and was a Liveryman in the Worshipful Company of Plumbers, one of London’s oldest liveries.  

Steckler said Tradify connected with Anne via Kea, an organisation that connects Kiwis located throughout the world to help New Zealand businesses grow.

“We had begun a search for a board member that had experience in the trades as well as the ability to hold an innate understanding of our customers and their challenges,” he said.

“Her understanding of how a trades business is run will really help to ensure we are building the best product for our customers’ needs.”

Timpany said she wanted to get involved with Tradify because she was impressed with how Tradify is reducing admin pain and making life easier for tens of thousands of tradies with their job management app, something she can really appreciate, based on her experience building and growing her own plumbing business.

“I have a real passion for trade businesses, so this is a great opportunity for me to help Tradify make an even bigger difference for more trade business owners.”

Steckler said “Anne has lived and breathed the trade business experience and can help us to do that on a large scale with thousands of trades businesses across the world via our platform,” he said.
