Foxbox Digital is now 3 years old! In just three years, we've grown to 44 people and I'm simply honored to be working with such an incredible team, and the most amazing clients. Looking back, a lot has happened since my last update Q3 of last year. I'm excited to tell you about the highlights of the past few months, and give you a preview of what's next!
Thank you for reading, I appreciate it.
We Helped Anthem Launch a Mobile Telehealth Product During a Pandemic
On January 1st, 2020, just as the spread of COVID-19 was gaining momentum, Anthem, Inc., a leading health benefits company, launched a virtual care app, Sydney Care.
We collaborated with the Sydney Care team as their lead mobile app development partner, because of our experience and deep knowledge of React Native.
I've previously announced our partnership with Anthem, but until now I wasn't able to name them. You can read all of the details of the case study here.
We Grew our Leadership Team
We've added three incredible people to our leadership team, one new and two promotions from within:
Steve MacKinnon - Chief Digital Officer
I'm proud to announce that Steve MacKinnon joined Foxbox as our Chief Digital Officer last month. He's a proven technology leader with over 20 years of experience across roles at IBM, Accenture, Avanade and Catch NYC. Steve and I first met 15 years ago at Avanade and he immediately earned my respect as someone who deeply understands technology, and who delivers.
At Foxbox, Steve will expand our capabilities by building our Foxbox Innovation Team (FIT Lab), Product Strategy, & Data, Analytics & Artificial Intelligence practices. Together we will be able to grow even faster, while becoming a better agency along the way.
Rebecca Le - Head of Operations
Rebecca has consistently delivered and grown her role over the past 2 1/2 years at Foxbox. Under her leadership, she has formed a team of 5 to effectively & efficiently run the Foxbox engine across talent acquisition, finance, legal & operations.
Matt Chen - Head of Delivery
Over the past 2 years at Foxbox, Matt has successfully led projects for our largest client, Anthem, and also has shaped the way we deliver across all of our clients. Throughout his career at Foxbox, he became an Agile Coach, earned Advanced Certified Scrummaster (A-CSM), and effectively grew our project and product teams with three key people.
Looking Back on 2020 & What's Next for 2021
Last year was tough. We had a period of survival mode, but we persevered through it, and now I am happy to say we are flourishing. Even through the pandemic, last year we grew our team from 26 to 36, and our revenue by 44%. Today we're 44 people!
For 2021, we're focusing on four goals:
- Delight & deliver value to our clients
- Effectively recruit the best people when our clients need them
- Have a happy, cohesive team who loves working here!
- Grow by 50%
We’re committed to delivering the best digital solutions possible for our clients, while making the biggest impact. We’re investing in our talent, our delivery, and expanding our capabilities to get there.
We're looking to bring on an additional 15 people across engineering, product, and delivery.
