HighQ has continued to build out its key management roles with the creation of a new chief marketing officer role, filled by the hire of David Roussain, most recently from digital media company AppNexus.
Roussain will work alongside Greg Taylor, who joined HighQ in June 2016 as president and chief operations officer, to lead the global marketing strategy, teams and initiatives, driving the next phase of HighQ’s growth in the US and globally.
HighQ in January 2016 received $50m in private equity investment from One Peak Partners, Morgan Stanley Expansion Capital and Goldman Sachs Private Capital. Its first-ever external funding round. The software-as-a-service collaboration and content management solutions provider, which was set up in 2001 by Ajay Patel and ex-business partner Veenay Shah, employs over 180 people globally, with offices in London, New York, Amsterdam, Frankfurt, Sydney and Ahmedabad.
“HighQ achieved strong global growth in our core markets in 2016. I am delighted David has joined our winning team to extend our thought leadership through his world-class demand generation and product marketing expertise,” said Taylor.
