January 16, 2020 Michael Brumitt

We're kicking off our first profile for the New Year with London-based EMEA Partner Alliance Director, Calum Wright. Learn what brought him to Appirio, the advice he'd give his younger self, and the music you'd need to play to get him singing along. 

What animal would be cutest if scaled down to the size of a cat?
Giraffe.

What was cool when you were young but isn’t cool now?
Pogs (think more widely called milk caps?)...

What was the last song you sung along to?
"Neighbourhood" by Zed Bias.

What movie can you watch over and over without ever getting tired of?
Happy Gilmore.

What is something you believe is worth standing up for?
Equality, whether that is racial, religious, gender, etc.

If you could have dinner with any person (dead or alive) who would it be and why?
My dad. It's been a while...

What is one book you would recommend everyone read at some point in their lifetime?
The Boys in the Boat.

What does EMEA Alliances do?
I look after the Salesforce relationship for EMEA. This covers supporting Sales Operations, Sales Enablement, and Marketing to ensure that we're growing our brand and reputation within the Salesforce community.

What attracted you to this role in company?
A new chapter, having grown and run a regional office for a boutique Gold Partner, I was looking for a bigger challenge; Appirio/Wipro accounts and relationships offer just that!

If you could give your younger self one piece of advice, what would it be?
Be fearless in the pursuit of what makes you happy, and don't self-scrutinise and make concessions based on what the populist opinion may be; be yourself.
