Genesis helps firms to build software significantly faster than if they had started from scratch, with less code and at a lower cost, while simultaneously catering for a range of simple and complex financial use cases.

Genesis has appointed Billy Morris as its new Chief Financial Officer (CFO) as the low-code/no-code platform also opens a new office in Dublin, Ireland.

Reporting directly to Stephen Murphy, Chief Executive Officer at Genesis, Billy Morris will act as the founding tenant of the company’s new Dublin office.

Billy Morris is a finance expert with nearly two decades of leadership, having helped various high-growth technology companies globally scale their businesses.

Based in Dublin, Mr. Morris will work in lockstep with the rest of the senior leadership team to drive and grow the company’s global financial and development strategy while also overseeing Genesis’ financial operations.

The Dublin office will be the base for the firm’s financial operations and business development teams and Genesis plans to grow operations there over the next 12 months.

Stephen Murphy, CEO, Genesis, said: “Billy’s proven leadership skills, financial expertise and passion for next-gen low-code/no-code innovation will play a key role as Genesis continues to build on its huge momentum. Ireland is one of Europe’s fastest-growing regions, and we couldn’t be more thrilled to have Billy on the ground spearheading this latest chapter of our combined growth.”

Billy Morris joins Genesis from ThousandEyes, where he most recently served as VP of Finance, helping with the company’s M&A and Finance strategy which aided in its successful acquisition by technology conglomerate Cisco Systems.

Prior to ThousandEyes, he was Finance Director at Twilio, leading the company’s financial planning & analysis team, as well as various accounting & investor relations initiatives, including its Initial Public Offering.

Billy Morris, Chief Financial Officer at Genesis, said: “Genesis sits at the forefront of the next-gen low-code/no-code movement and at its core, helps to empower and enable developers. The company is transforming how financial institutions innovate and solve complex challenges through its unique ‘buy to build’ approach.

“Genesis is also addressing the mounting need to fulfill gaps in the technical-talent pipeline – allowing financial firms to build in weeks what would typically take years. The path ahead is an exciting one and as the company continues to scale, I look forward to leveraging my background to implement the next phase of operational excellence and build the finance organization with rapid growth at the forefront of our planning. Equally, I am very excited to follow on from the successes with Twilio and ThousandEyes in building out best in class operations in Ireland, and look forward to the path ahead with Genesis here.”

Genesis helps firms to build software significantly faster than if they had started from scratch, with less code and at a lower cost, while simultaneously catering for a range of simple and complex financial use cases.
