0Overall Score

Engin has appointed outgoing Yahoo!7 director, Ian Smith, to its board of directors alongside a raft of members with technology and communications backgrounds.

From today Smith will join Neil Gamble, Bruce McWilliam, Ryan Stokes and Rohan Lund as a non-executive member of the board. He brings with him over 20 years of experience in advertising, along with important posts at other high profile media and communications companies including Bates Worldwide.

“We are very pleased to have Ian join the board of Engin, his all round experience, particularly in the marketing application and insight into the competitive and fast moving world of communications, entertainment and information, will be a huge asset to the company and aid us in our plans for future growth,” said Engin executive chairman, Neil Gamble.

Smith said he is looking forward to working at a “young and vibrant” company.

 

“[Engin’s] affiliation with Channel Seven and future plans to introduce Naked DSL and TiVo to the Australian market promises to make the company one to watch over the next year. I am proud to have been asked to join the board of directors and look forward to working with the board to help guide the company through this period of growth and development,” he said.

Engin is still searching for a new CEO following the cancellation of a US replacement for Illka Tales, Max Alexander, who declined the offer of employment due to “personal circumstances.”
