Andrew founded KulaHub as we know it today in December 2009 when he purchased the original marketing software from Technical Director, Tim Metcalfe. KulaHub’s earlier inception was a simple email broadcast platform, but without the full suite of marketing functionality that it enjoys today.
Together Tim and Andrew have developed the software; turning this into a full CRM Database Management and Marketing system, with the aim to service the needs of small businesses.
Andrew’s career started in farming and he spent 14 years managing the family business. But in 2000, he took a complete change of direction and moved into Software Sales; working for Minorplanet PLC; a Vehicle Tracking Company. After an initial period in the UK, he moved to Germany as Sales Director and ran the Hamburg office, later moving to the USA covering Dallas, Houston, Atlanta and LA.
