Alex Buelau

Head of Operations

I am Head of Operations at Genomics and my role is to make sure we have the right systems and frameworks in place so we can build amazing products.

I specialise in defining, building, managing and bringing to market software products. I am particularly experienced in the healthcare market (where regulatory and safety concerns play an important role).

After leaving the software development start-up that I co-founded in Brazil, I spent 10 years with Siemens Healthcare, initially in sales & marketing and later as Director of Product Management. Working in a big organisation with some of the top minds in engineering, business and medicine enabled me to understand how to build an effective, innovative team and what makes a successful product and ultimately a lucrative business.

I have a track record of delivering results even in the most challenging situations, many times working with multi-cultural and international teams spread across different locations. I have been directly responsible for building and launching products that started from a simple idea and a couple of powerpoint slides into worldwide markets.

Outside of work I enjoy sports (I used to play semi-professional volleyball), planning travels with my family and helping my daughter find Wally (she has the full collection).
