Speaking on his appointment Wilkinson said, “I am very pleased to be joining such an innovative and agile company as Rombii and to work alongside some great people with whom I share the same ideals.
“Companies like Rombii, that have been built from the ground up to directly respond to the challenges and opportunities the post-digital transformation media landscape bring, are few and far between. I’m looking forward to bringing my experience within the business media technology industry to contribute to the development of the business in these truly transformational times.”
Wilkinson brings over 15 years experience in the B2B tech industry having previously worked at IDG, the world’s largest tech publisher, driving digital innovation and delivering successful results over the years. Before joining Rombii earlier this year, Wilkinson was the senior vice president for marketing services and demand generation at IDG, providing strategic leadership and operational support on a global, regional and local level in two of the most important areas of revenue and growth for IDG worldwide.
