ASX-listed marketing solutions provider Tech Mpire has announced the appointment of former Google executive Lee Hunter (pictured below) as its CEO and managing director.
Hunter succeeds Luke Taylor, who will be taking on the new role of chief technology officer, with the handover of the leadership expected to be seamless, according to Tech Mpire, given Hunter was recently appointed by the company as a non-executive director and consultant.
At Google, Hunter held the roles of head of marketing for strategy and innovation in the Asia-Pacific region, and head of advertiser acquisition and growth marketing in the UK and Ireland.
Tech Mpire chairman Stephen Belben said: “The change in leadership reflects the ambitious goals we have for the company as we pursue global growth.
“The experience Lee brings from working with tech giants Google and YouTube will be invaluable to the management and direction of Tech Mpire.
“We are delighted to welcome Lee to the team in the prime leadership role and we are looking forward to further leveraging his experience to help grow Tech Mpire.”
Commenting on his new role, Hunter said: “ I’m very excited about the prospect of leading Tech Mpire and taking the business to the next level.
“I see enormous growth potential in the company, especially as we expand into new markets and evolve the benefits of our unique technology.
“I’m 100 per cent committed to the continued development of our teams across the world and driving sustained value for our advertisers, partners and particularly our shareholders.”
