CEO & Co-Founder, Xref
Lee-Martin Seymour is co-founder and CEO of Xref. The Xref concept was initiated from Lee’s frustration, following 17 years in recruitment, with the way reference checks were being conducted. Co-founder Tim Griffith’s deep technical understanding enabled him to envisage how automation could improve the process. And so, Xref was born. Lee’s ability to empathise with the struggles of his clients and confidently share counsel, is no coincidence. He previously spent 17 years working in recruitment across various industries and geographies. During this time, he developed a strong understanding of the demands of the employment market and its pain points. A serial entrepreneur with a determination to streamline business practices, Lee has also been at the forefront of multiple other technology and recruitment organisations that redefine processes, build brands and bring positive change to a community.
