Space 48 has appointed digital data science veteran Martin Boddy as chairman to help accelerate our growth in the UK and beyond.
Having founded the listed data, creative and performance marketing agency Jaywing plc, Martin Boddy has an impressive track record and experience when it comes to accelerating growth. He has extensive commercial acumen, while also being a data digital innovator. Martin stepped down as Executive Chairman in January 2020 to pursue a career as an independent board adviser. He is also Chairman of the RegTech business Money Alive.
The appointment follows the investment made by private equity firm Foresight in January which provides a launchpad for an exciting period of growth not only for our business expansion, but for enhancing our breadth of services and capabilities to our clients, creating new partnerships with industry-leading ecommerce solutions, and opening up recruitment opportunities.
“I’m delighted to have someone of Martin’s calibre and profile involved in the business. He brings not only commercial, marketing and M&A expertise and experience, but is also an innovator in the use of data in digital commerce.” Jon Woodall, Space 48 Managing Director.
