In this blog series, we will introduce you to our team. Louise McLennan is the Agile PM for Ignition Wealth and she is the fifth team member we will feature in this series.

She previously worked as both a Scrum Master and a Senior Net Developer for AMP, and as a Principal IS Analyst Programmer at CISRA, leading up to her job at Ignition Wealth as the Agile PM.

We asked her eight questions about her work at Ignition Wealth and what she is currently working on.

1. Why did you make the decision to work for Ignition Wealth?

Ultimately it was the team and the culture – it just felt right.  But also the job itself was exactly the kind of work I like to do, and I was impressed with the business offering of making financial advice more accessible and available to everyone.  That really appeals to me.

We have fun.  We work hard.  And we have a management team that supports getting stuff done.
