Luke Hopkins, CTO North America
Luke joined Broadbean in 2002, bringing with him the knowledge and experience he gained as a Network Engineer in the mobile industry; long before Smartphones had entered the marketplace. The decision to join Broadbean was a simple one and Luke was eager to share his expertise with such an unusual company. With the feel of a start-up and its burgeoning entrepreneurial environment, Broadbean was not only logical, but the perfect match. It was a culture that is still very much alive today in Broadbean’s unquenchable thirst for development and online innovation.
After several years with Broadbean in the UK, Luke had the opportunity to head up the tech team in the US. It proved to be too good to pass up, and he moved there in 2010. He relishes the exciting challenges of leading a young tech department that welcomes his quiet leadership style. He also thrives in Broadbean’s informal atmosphere and embraces its lack of bureaucracy. With year-to-year industry changes and endless tech development, there is always something new to work on. You can bet that technology is the reason Luke has stayed at Broadbean.
