October 20, 2012
Leading E-commerce platform strengthens advisory board with senior appointment.
NimbleCommerce, the leading local marketing and e-commerce platform, has appointed Kevin Doyle as non-executive director. He joins e-commerce and internet giants Gunjan Sinha and Mike Wilson on the company’s board of advisors.
Founder and chairman of a private investment fund, Doyle has 20 years' experience in developing and leading supply chain technology companies. His involvement in technology businesses stretches back to the pre-dot com era, and he has been involved in a number of industry ‘firsts’.
Doyle’s first venture in 1994 provided VAT reclaim software to businesses in Europe; and in 1996, he established BVR, a company that provided e-procurement solutions. The business moved from London to New York and was subsequently acquired by Chase Manhattan Bank.
In 1998, Doyle went on to establish a company that specialised in solving complex integration issues for companies providing B2B software. The business soon became a lead partner in Microsoft's European CIP strategy (1999) and was later acquired by Infobank. Before the acquisition, the company was the fastest growing technology company on the UK Stock Exchange and continues to thrive under its parent brand.
In March 2000, Doyle sold his interests in the company and established the private investment business. The group is actively involved in both first and second round investments. Doyle has also been co-inventor on a number of patents within the healthcare and B2B arenas.
“Kevin has a wealth of knowledge and experience in leading successful technology companies, and his counsel will prove invaluable to NimbleCommerce. We are very excited to have him on board,” says Prashant Nedungadi, founder and CEO of NimbleCommerce.
“Kevin’s unique ability to recognise and create emerging markets is a welcomed asset to NimbleCommerce, as we strive to create new transactional opportunities through mobile, search and the power of social networks,” continues Nedungadi.
