Blair Whitehead

After finishing University at Manchester with a BA (Hons) in Business Management, Blair arrived in Sydney in 2003.

For the last 20 years he has worked as Founder & CEO of Proforce, a sales development company specializing in graduate recruitment, executive recruitment & training.

His deep knowledge of the early career candidate market provides unparalleled insights into the unique challenges employers face from a talent attraction & retention perspective when hiring & building early careers teams.

After learning of the alarming statistics around employee financial stress, particularly in the sub 40-year-old demographic, he felt compelled to address the need for improved financial wellbeing solutions in the Gen Z & Millennial age groups.

Seeing the opportunity that exists for both the employer and the employee by improving individual financial wellness, he co-founded MoneyHappy as a targeted solution for business to help their graduates & early career employees feel less stressed about money and happier, more settled in their job.

Blair supports MoneyHappy with partnership & sales development opportunities.
