General Manager


For those of you who might be familiar with affix and the kind of work we do and the clients we work with, we often sport words like “awesome”, “more awesome” and “awesome-er” and we find the work we do and the businesses we partner with pretty exciting.

This, my friends, is again another example of why we love doing what we do. Yes, before you ask which one it is, this gig is awesome-er.

OK, down to why you’ve actually clicked on this and what this is all about…
We have a leadership role, a General Manager gig, in a lean small business that requires someone to “run the thing”. What do I mean?

  • Assess the Product and the value proposition – the business needs to go through a significant pivot and it all starts here
  • What do the users want and what makes commercial sense?
  • With all of this in mind, how do we drive greater conversion?
  • Bring people along and provide a sense of “ownership” throughout the business. Lead and provide a real sense of purpose.

There’s a lot more to it, but if the above speaks to you, well might be worth reading more.

So, who do you need to be?

There isn’t a one size fits all thing going on and I’m not going to rattle off a whole bunch of crazy things that you might see on status updates or motivational Richard Branson memes on Linked In.


However, what I will say is that you can be an existing leader in an MD or GM role, or you could be looking to step into that kind of gig. The kind of background I’m going to be really excited about is going to be someone that knows Tech-driven environments and get subscription models. You know that customer experience isn’t just words we throw around like “oh yes, we’re agile!” The size of the business isn’t a key concern either, but you need to know how to run a small, lean business and how to help make it grow.

Been in a Product or Growth/Monetisation looking to take the reins and lead, then this might be the time to take the leap.

If this makes ANY sense and has got you thinking, then I have kinda/sorta/maybe done my job. Now it’s your turn. Give us a shout and let’s talk about you, this and what it all means.
