Digital air cargo business, CharterSync, is appointing Digital Founders’ veteran, entrepreneur and investor, Andy Evans, as its non-executive director (NED).
The news is announced by Simon Watson and Ed Gillett, directors and co-founders of CharterSync, as the company sets its sights on global expansion following three years of rapid growth.
Ed Gillett says: “Andy will be a great asset for CharterSync, bringing with him invaluable experience of creating, leading and monetising businesses driven by disruptive technology and innovation. Andy’s insights and experience will be invaluable to us as we continue to grow and scale over the coming years.”
Over the last 20+ years, Evans has founded, built and sold three media and technology businesses. In 1999, he founded one of the UK’s first digital publishing businesses and first vertical ad-network Net Communities. He also founded the UK’s first podcast production company in 2005. Latterly he invented and patented an advertising technology business which sold less than three years after he founded it. He now leads a growing investment portfolio and community of digital founders encompassing innovators spanning various industries from e-commerce to kids’ entertainment.
Evans comments: “CharterSync is a truly ground-breaking business which has brought much-needed innovation, transparency and efficiency to the air cargo charter sector. I am looking forward to working closely with Ed and Simon, to help them accelerate their international rollout, and meet their ambitious growth targets.”
