Juan Furmie - AfricArena
Founding partner of ThisIsMe

As founding partner of ThisIsMe, Juan Furmie has acquired a unique talent for client relations over his years spent consulting for start-up businesses. His unstoppable passion for the digital world was ignited when he became involved in the web technologies and networking basics of Magiqstudios, a web development company headed up by his brother.

Armed with a keen interest in the expanding realm of e-Commerce, Juan ventured from Magiqstudios in 2003 to become a specialist in payment systems (including Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) compliance) for PlayUKinternet, a UK-based lottery ticket concierge marketed from Cape Town. After gaining five years’ experience in payments,
Juan shifted his focus to become Marketing Manager of the Central & Eastern Europe marketing division of PlayUKinternet and then later on to become the Global Head of Marketing.

Juan applies his extensive expertise in operations, payment systems, marketing and business strategy to ThisIsMe. He now heads the business as the CEO after 4 years as COO.
