Originally from the Republic of Trinidad and Tobago, Rysel lived and worked in the UK for over 18 years.
Rysel developed a deep curiosity and passion for technology whilst completing her BSc in Computer Science. This passion did not diminish over the years - her 2007 Finance MBA dissertation was entitled "How the online business model will replace traditional brick and mortar businesses in years to come". Fast forward some years and this now holds true in most of the largest countries.
Rysel's career to date spans almost 20 years. She started corporate life in the UK doing a variety technology consulting roles across private and public sector. She then spent 12 years at EY, also in the technology arena, where she steadily progressed to senior management over the years.
So, why online business? Having followed the evolution of the online business model for over two decades, Rysel continues to appreciate the convenience and cost-benefit it brings for both customers and vendors alike. She says "After ordering hundres (possibly thousands) of products online over the years, it is incredibly satisfying to have an item delivered to my front door which was only ordered earlier in the day. Out of all the products ordered, I have never had an item not be delivered. This is the type of online shopping experience I am offering to the Caribbean, starting with Barbados".
She would love to see Caribbean busineses and customers capitalise on the overwhelming benefits online shopping brings and RjMcLean will play a part in making this a reality.
