Based in Berlin, the Aussie.EU founding team is a small yet passionate team. Meet Jock and Kat.
Jock Gordon, Founder
Originally from Adelaide, Jock Gordon has over 11 years’ experience in business as an entrepreneur, running three successful, sustainable businesses in tandem and seeding, building and exiting a market-leading, industry-first international venture.
MenuPad was the world’s first iPad menu system for restaurants. Launched in 2010, it revolutionised diners’ interaction with hospitality venues. Jock exited MenuPad in 2013 in a major trade sale to one of the largest hospitality entrepreneurs in the USA.
Since then Jock has established a global network of entrepreneurial connections, worked on M&A projects, consulted from Europe to India and now founding a medical startup based between Australia, Europe and the USA.
Kat Loughrey, Community Manager
Originally from Brisbane (via Melbourne), Kat Loughrey is a digital communications consultant. She brings 10 years of experience within communications and marketing from across startups, government, corporate, music media and the sporting industry. She’s been based in Berlin for several years now, focused on remote work and helping startups from the USA to Australia revamp their digital presence online.
She hosts the monthly Freelance Friday Berlin meetup for indie workers, digital nomads and solopreneurs, and regularly speaks at events or runs workshops on social media in Berlin.
Kat can be seen out and about connecting our community in Berlin, and passionate about bringing together Australians in our Slack and online communities, where you’ll often see her.
