Voice technology company, Say It Now, has appointed Brian Fitzpatrick to the role of chairman as it looks to expand its business and seek further funding.
Fitzpatrick, who is also an angel investor in the company, has been involved in the development of digital media for nearly 25 years and is widely considered an industry veteran, expertise that sees him contribute to several emerging technology start-ups as a board member. This is his first chairman position.
Currently, general manager for Europe at advertising technology specialist IPONWEB, Fitzpatrick’s previous roles include managing director for the European business of Adap.tv before its acquisition by AOL and European managing director of the Media Innovation Group (the MIG), WPP’s first technology development organisation dedicated to media buying and optimisation.
The key challenges for businesses based on nascent technology is finding the killer use cases that deliver value in everyday life, creating a differentiated and compelling proposition around them and bringing that to market faster and better than the competition. Brian truly understands the software development cycle and how to position it for advantage. His expertise, experience and influence can only be beneficial for Say It Now.
