Erevena are delighted to announce that Richard Gibson has joined the firm as Chairman. Richard will work closely with the leadership team to help them to continue to expand the business in both Europe and the USA.
Richard has a broad range of experience helping entrepreneurs turn their ideas into great companies. His experiences as both CFO and Executive Chairman in a high growth tech company means he understands the rollercoaster ride of scaling a rapidly growing company. This coupled with his work with high potential companies (typically VC-backed) looking to scale their ideas into sustainable and valuable businesses means he is ideally placed to assist Erevena at the next stage of their growth.
I am delighted to be joining Erevena as Chairman at such an exciting time for the business. Their service offering and delivery resulted in a record year in 2019, and there are tremendous growth opportunities in the market. Having worked with a number of rapidly growing technology businesses over the past 10 years such as SwiftKey and Speechmatics, I know that building leadership teams as the company scales is crucial to the success of the company and creating value. Erevena are excellent at understanding the skills needed at each stage of growth and how the personalities across the team fit together. With the fierce battle for top talent in high growth tech companies, Erevena are well positioned for continued strong growth. My role as an advisor will enable me to help them with their ambitions to scale their ideas and achieve their next stage of expansion.
We are delighted that Richard has chosen to join Erevena at this time of tremendous growth. We will greatly benefit from his experience of scaling rapidly growing companies, and his knowledge and experience, combined with our ambitions for overseas expansion, will allow us to build a stronger firm.
Dan Hyde, CEO, Erevena
