Eagle Eye’s CMO, Russell Buckley, has announced that he’s going to step down from full time role at Eagle Eye from February, though we’re delighted to say that he will continue to act in an advisory capacity in the future and support the company in an ad hoc role.
“When I started at Eagle Eye” writes Russell, “Steve Rothwell [CEO] and I agreed that the day would come when I could take a step back and pursue my many other interests in mobile and technology, as an investor, advisor and mentor, as well as a speaker and writer. I’m pleased to say that the job I was appointed to do is now complete. We’ve recruited a great sales and marketing team, establishing the Eagle Eye brand and marketing assets and put Eagle Eye on the map as the leader in mobile coupons and the voice of authority in the sector. With a raft of new clients coming on board in 2012, I’m very confident that Steve’s leadership will continue to deliver fantastic results for all of Eagle Eye’s stakeholders.”
“Russell joined us at a critical time in our corporate development” responded Steve Rothwell “and achieved all the goals we set when he joined. We have always known the time would come when Russell would leave to pursue his other interests and we are very sad this time has come. I am very pleased that he will maintain his interest in the company and be an advisor to us as we continue our rapid growth. Personally, I thank Russell for all his hard work, support and friendship over the past year and I look forward to working with him again in the future.”
So, as Eagle Eye ponders continued International expansion, it’s definitely “Au Revoir” from us to Russell and certainly not “Adieu”.
