High growth companies aren’t just about the operating teams, they also need great boards to support (so often an afterthought). After many months of searching, we’ve found a great Non-Exec Chairman to join SuperAwesome’s board. I’m delighted to welcome Tim Weller to the family.
Tim is a successful entrepreneur within the media and technology industries. Most notably he founded Incisive Media in 1994 and grew it to a £250 million media and events business within 13 years (which he IPO’d and then also took private). Incisive Media has been voted the UK Association of Online Publishers (AOP) Digital Publisher of The Year in 2010, 2013, 2016 and 2017.
Today he is also Non-Executive Chairman for Trustpilot and Taptica (AIM:TAP). TrustPilot, the company review provider which a lot of you might recognise, is backed by Vitruvian Partners, Draper Esprit and Index Ventures, and has raised $125M in financing. Mobile advertising platform Taptica was named the 2017 International Company of the Year at the 22nd Annual AIM Awards and acquired Tremor Video DSP in August 2017 for $50M.
Tim’s background in scaling digital media and technology companies makes him the perfect addition to our board as we continue SuperAwesome’s global mission to power the kids digital media ecosystem ????????????
