Origami is excited to announce that it has appointed Peter Simmonds as Chief Operating Officer, joining the company with immediate effect.

With over 20 years’ experience delivering, optimising and supporting B2B and B2C operations, Peter will play a pivotal role in the scaling and maturing of the organisation as Origami positions itself as a world leading technology provider in the energy industry.

Peter joins Origami from San Francisco-based leading independent B2B SaaS advertising management company, Marin Software. Marin Software provides a platform for some of the world’s biggest companies to manage complex digital marketing campaigns across Google, Facebook and all major publishers. As an Executive Team Member, UK MD and Senior Vice President of Operations at Marin, Peter led the global delivery, support and security of AdTech SaaS platforms, powering $7 billion of annualised digital advertising spend.

Prior to Marin, Peter was Head of Global Product Delivery at leading online gaming company, Betfair. He matured and scaled the organisation with initiatives such as moving to a continuous software delivery - significantly reducing time to market and addressing major operational impediments.

Origami’s CEO, Peter Bance, commented: “I am delighted to have Peter on board here at Origami. His experience as an Executive at SaaS organisations, along with his technical background and track record of delivery will be crucial in this next stage of the business’ growth.”
