The other day I met someone who introduced themselves as a creative technologist. After 13 years working in the online world, I’ve been witness to the evolution of the online job title and it’s come a long way from it’s humble ‘e-business manager’ beginnings.
After doing a bit of research I came to the conclusion that there are nearly as many online job titles as there are salad dressing varieties and it’s starting to get confusing.
Kersh’s transition out of the business saw it’s beginnings around April of 2013. At the time Kersh was the major shareholder of 4cabling and her mother held a minority share.
When her mother came to her and expressed that she was wanting to retire and sell her shares, Kersh began thinking that maybe it was time for something new for herself as well. At the time it had been a ten year journey and though she loved her team and everything she had built, the next journey was calling.
Kersh started her first business 4cabling when she was still at university, over the last 6 years she has gone from having one shelf of product to a massive warehouse in Sydney’s inner west and a team of full time staff, with a business turning over millions of dollars a year targeting wholesale clients.
