Co-Founder & COO,
GlamCorner

Audrey is the Co-founder & COO of GlamCorner - Australia's largest online designer fashion rental business. In 2012, Audrey and her husband Dean set out on a mission to revolutionise the way Australian women think about their wardrobes by harnessing the power of the sharing economy to provide a platform that allowed their customers to borrow clothing on-demand and simply return it after use. The company they built now employs over 60 people and processes over 30 tonnes of shared clothing per month.

Investor,
AirTree Ventures

Originally from the UK, I'm a passionate convert to life in Australia. Before joining AirTree, I invested in early and growth stage FinTech startups at NAB Ventures. Before that, I was Chief of Staff at Series A startup Kalo, based in London and San Francisco, where I worked with the CEO on strategy, go to market, and operations.

I started my career on the trading floor as a VP in Equity Derivatives at Merrill Lynch and Citigroup, and graduated from Cambridge University. I feel incredibly lucky to spend my days with the most ambitious founders and play a part in helping them endure the hard days, make their bold ideas a reality and scale.
