John Bird

General Manager


John Bird

John joined BBE in February this year to head up the newly formed P2P Team. Previously John was MD at thankQ, arch rival to Blackbaud, where he took the product from a new market entrant in the year 2000, to one with almost 300 NFP customers by the time he left. In 2012 he oversaw the acquisition of thankQ by the Access Group for £2.7m. John has a maths background and started out as a database developer, which as a manager means he has a need to understand the underlying data and processes that make the business tick.
