OurSay is a social enterprise. The organisation was founded by a group of young people in August 2010, is run by an Executive Management and Leadership Team and is kindly supported by a team of amazing passionate volunteers. If you would like to get involved drop us a email at [email protected].
Our Executive Management and Leadership Team includes:
Eyal Halamish, CEO: Hailing from the suburbs of Chicago, this ‘activist in a suit’ recently quit his corporate consulting gig to become OurSay’s first and only full-time employee. When the deliberation is done, Eyal makes the final call at OurSay.
Matthew Gordon, COO: Matthew is the glue behind the OurSay operation. He makes sure the people, systems and the house are in order. During business hours, he works for Victoria’s environmental regulator, the Environment Protection Authority of Victoria.
Gautam Raju, CFO: Gautam is the visionary and the brain behind the look and feel of OurSay...and makes sure we don’t spend too much money. Gautam is based in Delhi, India where he is planning a roll out of OurSay in India.
Luke Giuliani, CTO: Want to buy a robot? How about a website? Luke can make both. This cutting-edge engineer at Squareweave, a web development consultancy, transforms dreams into hard-nosed business realities. He asks the hard questions and spends countless hours coding website solutions to fix problems. P.S. Luke is an aspiring law graduate.
Amelia Kemister, Platform Team Leader: A gymnast with more than a twist. When she’s not training aspiring 4 year-old gymnasts to do 100 chin-ups, Amelia oversees a crew of passionate volunteers as they implement OurSay forums.
Martin Conley-Wood, Systems Team Leader: If philosophy and literature are not your trade, Martin’s knack for process and systems means OurSay will grow bigger than a tiny group of passionate people.
OurSay is largely driven by the efforts of an amazing team of volunteers:
OurSay received an initial financial contribution from its founding partners as well as an investment from social entrepreneur Nic Frances. The founding partners include: Gautam Raju, Matthew Gordon, Eyal Halamish, Linh Do, Hedda Ransan-Elliott and Luke Giuliani.
