Bex Twemlow

Founder / Chief Commander

Work

High among Chief Commander Bex’s many passions are people, technology and bringing them together to achieve social impact. Growing successful New Zealand businesses is high on her radar too, along with heading up Firebrand Ventures to connect people nationwide. She's a pro at crafting strategies and campaigns with clear business goals and delivering platforms with amazing user experience and engagement.

Bex has been a key founder of many initiatives, businesses and product developments, especially digital transformations including Hail, GetHomeSafe and eComPlus. A fiercely passionate supporter of those in need, Bex is proud of the contribution Firebrand makes by giving back to the community.

Bex is active in governance roles including serving as the Vice President of the Otago Chamber of Commerce, where she assists in shaping the strategic direction of our region to ensure sustainability and relevance. She is a supportive business mentor and is a key coach in early-stage discovery sessions, coaching our clients through strategy, business and product development.

Play

Outside of work, you can find Bex running around after her two beautiful children, Tayla and Mason. Bex loves going away with the family to the crib in Otematata for some well deserved relaxation and water-based sports (as long as it's warm enough).

A reformed lead singer, Bex is quick to reach for the karaoke microphone, provided Paul doesn't get there first! Her love for music is shared by the rest of the Twemlow family and they can often be spotted at concerts around New Zealand and especially at our very own Forsyth Barr Stadium.
