Amazon’s Former Finance Director Talks About His Non-Exec Work to Pathfinder Executive Search

Pathfinder’s Founder and MD Bruce Wright, had the pleasure of speaking to Steve Bennetts about his Non-Exec work.

In this first episode of the podcast I’m talking to Steve Bennetts. For those of you who don’t know, Steve is the Chief Financial Officer of Actual Experience and has been a Non-Exec with Input Media since late 2011. His career prior to this has been equally interesting and includes being EMEA Finance Director for several NASDAQ quoted companies such as Avid Technologies and Pyramid Technologies but most recognisable is probably his time leading the team that established Amazon’s European operations.
