Meet Our Leaders & Founders

CircleSource founders Andrew Jarvis, Mark Townley and Andrew Jackson know that organisations rarely have all the expertise they need in their own team. With over 25 years’ experience in small, medium and enterprise businesses across a range of industries, they wanted to use their knowledge to help business and communities thrive.

The team founded CircleSource in in 2016. They were aware of other platforms in the market spruiking their offerings and claiming the benefits they offered businesses and local communities. However the CircleSource Founders were determined to create a different experience through offering a platform to help facilitate real business connections both at the local community level while helping bridge the gap between corporate businesses and SME’s.

With trust and transparency at its core, they are in for the long haul to provide a solution that really does help put small businesses on the map and grow.

Andrew Jarvis

CHIEF EXECUTIVE OFFICER

My career has spanned many different industry sectors, both public and private, working with senior executives and great emerging talent. In the roles I played across these large corporates, I came to appreciate and value just how much businesses of ALL sizes required access to external specialist service providers and experts to help their business at some stage.
Across Australia, there’s a growing number of exceptional, highly talented experts and specialist service providers with their own businesses, mainly SME’s and sole traders, many based within our local and regional communities. They “punch well above their weight”, providing expertise and specialist services into larger corporates and playing a key role in driving our economy. I thought more could be being done to help better connect these relationships and help them succeed and grow.
So, I left my corporate role to create and Co Found CircleSource. We’re passionate about making a difference in how businesses, large and small, find and connect with the expertise and specialist service providers they need, do business together and succeed.

Having worked in everything from warehousing and manufacturing to truck driving and gardening, I settled down at aged 21 into the corporate world. Don’t hear this much these days, but literally got my start doing the mail and odd jobs. Led to a successful career in HR over the next 28 odd years ending in the role as Head of Reward and Property at Superpartners.
2015, switch to starting up CircleSource with a long term colleague. Some might not think that moving from the Corporate HR world to a technology based startup was a natural step. At times so do I but when you believe in what you’ve built, how it can help people in their working lives AND help businesses connect, save money and do business; well, why wouldn’t you?
We live in a world now where digital connectivity and e-commerce is part of everyday life and comes naturally to us in so many forums. Using technology to source business services is a natural extension and with CircleSource, we aim to dramatically change the way businesses go about finding and engaging the experts they need.
