I thank the board for their trust and look forward to working with the team on the delivery of next-generation virtual advertising solutions.”
Hall will take over from current CEO and founder Lukas Gysin, who will remain with the company as a member of its board of directors, focusing on strategic opportunities and partnerships. Gysin, who was closely involved with the recruitment process for his successor, said: “I believe that Roger Hall is the ideal CEO to lead uniqFEED into the next phase of its development and to futureproof the company. I am delighted that he has come on board to drive uniqFEED’s continued success.”
