BRIAN KENNY, 31, CEO, MiniCorp

HOBBIES/INTERESTS?

Business and motorbikes.

WHAT DO YOU USE YOUR PHONE FOR THE MOST?

(Deep breath) Social, Snapchat, email, Instagram, Twitter, Calendar – basically, everything to keep me connected.

WHAT’S MOST IMPORTANT IN A PHONE AND WHY?

The battery – I’m on the phone non-stop and always end up with an external battery pack. Samsung phones definitely perform better here, and I like the cordless charging option.

ANY APP YOU LOVE THAT WE SHOULD KNOW ABOUT?

Scannable for business expenses. I’m not exaggerating here – it’s changed my life.

YOUR PERFECT WEEKEND?

A run, 3fe coffee and family brunch in the city. Then bring Lilly (our daughter) to the park, a nice movie and a takeaway.

BEST CHRISTMAS PRESSIE EVER?

My first ever mobile phone.

WHAT WOULD YOU LIKE TO FIND UNDER THE TREE THIS YEAR?

That’s easy, the Samsung Gear 360 Camera – I’m seriously thinking of getting into vlogging.

WHAT WILL YOU REMEMBER 2016 FOR?

Growing our phenomenal team in MiniCorp by double.
