The company has appointed Branden Jenkins to the role of Chief Operating Officer as the latest move to further accelerate its growth.

Based in Las Vegas, Jenkins is an expert in driving rapid business growth, leading cross-functional teams and go-to-market strategies.

He joined Medius in 2021 as Chief Strategy Officer, playing a key role in improving the operationalisation of many new strategies, particularly in go-to-market, product strategy, corporate development, and alliances.

With 20 years of executive leadership experience, he holds first-hand experience in large-scale SaaS growth.

Before joining Medius, Jenkins spent nine years at Oracle NetSuite, rising to VP of Strategy, where he helped to grow the company from $250 million to billions in revenue. He also held the positions of VP of Target Markets, and General Manager of Global Retail.

Prior to Oracle NetSuite, Jenkins held the position of CEO and Chairman at Retail Anywhere, a SaaS company based in San Luis Obispo, California. Branden took over as CEO in 2002 and sold the company to NetSuite after ten years as the company's CEO.

The COO appointment rounds out and complements the executive team with significant go-to-market and product investments from the addition Advent International as a minority private equity shareholder, alongside existing majority shareholders Marlin Equity Partners.

"As we look to scale Medius to a billion-dollar category king, we need a leader with extensive experience in sales, business development, and go-to-market strategies who can lead our daily operations and who will be instrumental in helping us continue to drive our business forward," Medius Chief Executive Officer Jim Lucier says.

"Branden will play an incredibly important role in supporting and challenging the team, as we evolve our business to further accelerate our rapid growth," Lucier adds.

"Medius is laser-focused on reducing risk and fraud for mid-sized and large enterprises with our patent-pending AI technology that takes AP processing from automated to autonomous," Jenkins says.

"It's an exciting time to step into my expanded role at Medius. I plan to focus my energy on scaling our organisation, and working with our incredible customers, partners, and team to take this company to new heights."
