Venture capital-backed start-up addresses digital sales gap

Forbes' acclaimed Top 5 UK Big Data company Pivigo hires the former Head of Digital at the Daily Mail and General Trust plc.

Pivigo is a VC-backed start-up in the London data science scene. They are a data science marketplace and training provider, offering companies access to the best and brightest analytical talent globally on a freelance basis. Their CEO is one of the Top 100 Influencers in Big Data in the UK and they work with a wide range of companies, from FTSE 100 corporates to the freshest start-ups, on solving any and all people-related problems they may have within Big Data.

They were looking for a strategic Chief Revenue Officer (CRO) who could develop the company's go-to-market plan to further accelerate Pivigo’s European growth (with a particular focus on the UK and Germany). The position was created as a result of a recent funding round to launch a new international online marketplace which gives data scientists access to networking opportunities, jobs and freelance projects. 

Through Nurole they identified Adam Baker who, having led digital sales at the Daily Mail and General Trust, been Chief Operations Officer at The Guardian Media Group and also more recently been Managing Director at Sociomantic Labs (an early stage ad-tech company), has deep experience of running early stage businesses, building teams, generating and scaling revenue and raising money.

Big Data Top 100 Influencer and Pivigo Founder Dr Kim Nilsson commented:

"The standard of candidates that came through the portal was outstanding and we found the perfect one in Adam Baker. We are very excited to see what he can do to help us scale our business."

Successful candidate Adam Baker was also impressed with the Nurole experience and commented:
