London, August 27th, 2019 - InfoSum today announced the appointment of Richard Foster as Chief Revenue Officer. In this new and pivotal role, Richard will oversee the development and implementation of all commercial strategies to accelerate our growth through key strategic partnerships.
Richard is a seasoned business leader and joins from LiveRamp where he had been UK Managing Director for four years. Joining LiveRamp in 2015, Richard successfully established them as the identity leader in the UK and across Europe. Prior to LiveRamp, Richard lead commercial teams at Intelligent Optimisation, Krux DMP (now SalesForce), TrustArc, Future Publishing, and Audience Science.
Nick Halstead, CEO, and founder commented on Richard’s appointment “InfoSum has spent the last three years deep in development mode, creating the industry’s first platform that requires no movement of data; building trust in the data economy, through our Unified Data Platform. Since coming to market at the start of 2019, we’ve begun working with leading brands, publishers and walled gardens to safely and securely unlock their customer data for analysis and activation, without needing to move, share or centralise the data. Now, with Richard joining our leadership team, InfoSum is poised to fix the complexity in today's advertising ecosystem through secure and privacy-safe first-party connectivity."
Richard added “Over the last four years at LiveRamp I’ve seen first-hand companies wanting to be able to work collaboratively with their partners in jointly using data. Often what holds them up are concerns over regulatory requirements, data leakages, and inefficient legacy systems, all leading to a breakdown in trust. I believe InfoSum has developed the solution to these challenges. The team has come to market with a truly groundbreaking platform that brings privacy-safe first-party connectivity to the industry, solving the fragmentation and complexity that currently limits the ecosystem. The industry is buzzing about InfoSum, and I’m thrilled to be joining the team to help accelerate their growth. Look out for us announcing some exciting strategic partnerships that will further establish InfoSum as the ‘go-to’ solution for secure and trusted data collaboration.”
