Weve appoints new managing director
Mobile marketing and payments company Weve has appointed former Travelex divisional MD David Sear as its permanent CEO.
Nancy Cruickshank, who has led the company as interim CEO since it was formed in September 2012 and the period when it was being cleared by the European Commission, will leave the business at the end of March.
Sear spent six years at a non-bank payments provider Travelex, most recently as divisional MD but formerly as divisional MD for global business payments.
Weve chairman Gerry McQuade said: 'I am delighted that David is joining at such an exciting time. Weve has been steadily building its capabilities since December and the mobile marketing business is operational and generating revenue. With an opted-in 15 million customer base, the company is at a great starting point to bring to life the full potential of mobile commerce in the UK. I would also like to thank Nancy for her support over the last year and wish her every success as she leaves the business to focus on the development of her own online beauty business.'
Yesterday Weve announced it had added Vodafone to its listed of opted in customers. The company is a joint venture between Vodafone, O2 and EE.
