Launched in November 2014, Beehive is the first regulated peer to peer (P2P) lending platform in the UAE. It has rapidly grown into a leading disruptor in the fintech industry, providing an alternative finance solution for small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs). The brainchild of serial entrepreneur Craig Moore, supported by Rick Pudner, former Group CEO of Emirates NBD, Beehive is a cloud-based, scalable online lending platform that directly connects businesses looking for finance with investors that can invest and support their growth.
As Founder and CEO, Craig is responsible for overseeing the overall strategic direction and managing the day-to-day operations of Beehive. Before founding Beehive, Craig was a founder and COO of Butterfly Software, a UK based data analytics and migration software company, acquired by IBM in September 2012.
Prior to Butterfly, his experience includes sales, consulting and finance roles at various multinational companies such as Dell, EMC, Hitachi and HSBC with an emphasis on shaping effective go to market and value propositions.
