UK, 6th September 2018: Following a major £6 million investment from BGF, Barclays and private investors, MyLife Digital (incorporating Wood for Trees and Insight Analysis) is preparing itself for international expansion as a world-class personal data technology company.
With this next stage of development, John Hall is stepping down as CEO. John will be taking up a fresh challenge within the Corsham based Momentum Group of companies. As a founding director and major shareholder, John continues as Non-Executive Director on the board of MyLife Digital and as an ambassador for MyLife Digital working on key relationships, in particular the Rugby Football Union.
John Hall said, “The time feels right for me to step down as CEO, as the business plans for international expansion. When co-founder and director Jeffrey Thomas and I first had the idea for MyLife Digital, we always planned that I would launch and develop the company to a certain stage before handing the baton on.”
Andrew Wilson has been announced as Interim CEO. Andrew has over twenty years of sales, commercial and general management experience in IT and Finance markets, giving him the insight and experience to navigate complex organisations and assist with business transformation for accelerated growth. Andrew has a track record of growing start-up and medium-sized companies into large, established and profitable enterprises. He has worked for corporations such as Sprinklr, VCE (a Cisco, Intel, EMC & VMware joint venture), Hewlett Packard and Hitachi.
Rob Gould has also been announced as Chief Revenue Officer. Rob has over 28 years of experience of sales leadership, talent acquisition and go-to-market optimisation in technology sectors. During the last ten years, Rob has led international teams and technology platforms for cloud, IT resource management & automation software, and cyber defence software and services. With extensive experience of global business development, Rob has helped grow corporations such as EMC, Resource Management Software Group and RSA.
Bruce Finnamore, Chairman of MyLife Digital, said, “We are extremely thankful for John’s leadership. He has successfully taken MyLife Digital from start-up to established company and prepared us to launch into an exciting stage of international expansion. Andrew and Rob have the perfect skill sets and experience to manage MyLife Digital through our next phase of highly accelerated growth”.
MyLife Digital’s mission is to help individuals and organisations realise the meaning, power and value of trusted data. Trusted data is not just a wish, it’s a ‘must have’ for positive outcomes such as optimising performance, customer engagement and societal change. In today’s world of fake news, Twitter bots and personal data misuse – using people’s data for purposes of which they were unaware – it’s time to challenge the conventions, provenance and insights being generated as a result of the explosion of data across the world.
