Mobile analytics firm Kochava opens office in Dublin and announces four new executive hires
Mobile attribution and analytics firm, Kochava, has just announced an expansion to its team alongside the launch of a new office in Dublin. The move follows some impressive global coverage, tracking mobile ad campaigns across 195 countries.
The company has shown some good year-on-year client growth rates at 300% and hence Kochava has been updating its platform to support global languages and currencies.
Kochava expands office locations and staff
Its first European headquarters will be established in Dublin this autumn. Kochava says that it is one of the few remaining English-speaking capitals in the EU, which has established headquarters from tech heavyweights such as Amazon, Facebook, Google, Airbnb and eBay, among others.
Charles Manning, CEO, Kochava, explains:
“Kochava has found a perfect fit for our new European headquarters in Dublin. With a young, tech-savvy population of native English-speakers and the lowest corporate tax in Western Europe, Dublin presents an attractive mix of talent and government support, along with progressive licensing policies for intellectual property rights and R&D tax credits. Combine these factors with the concentrated IT ecosystem gathered in Dublin and it’s clear to see that a tech utopia is being built. Kochava is excited to become a contributing member of the European tech hub that is Dublin.”
Meanwhile, Jaime Ocampo, former Head of Kochava Singapore, has been promoted to General Manager of Kochava APAC to run operations in South East Asia, Australia, New Zealand, Korea, and Japan. Ocampo brings on board some solid leadership experience, spending the last 15 years within the mobile industry in Asia.
Jeff Chai will be joining Kochava at its China office where he’ll be in charge of the Kochava China business unit. He has over 25 years of IT industry experience and a strong background in overseas software and internet business management. Chai served as Chief Representative for Managed Object Solutions in 2004 and later helped create Lenovo’s global consumer PC software and Internet service business, following the acquisition of Managed Object Solutions through Lenovo in 2009.
Helping clients to get a better grasp on mobile marketing campaign efficiency is an important task and Grant Simmons will be joining the company to do just that as Director of Client Analytics. He moves over from Oracle Data Cloud serving as Head of Retail Analytics together with 1,500+ retail directors, VPs, CMOs, and agencies to develop test and learning strategies.
Last but not least, Kochava has hired Fred Thuard as Head of EMEA sales force. He’s the former founder and CEO of mobile gaming usage analytics provider Whally and Executive VP at App Annie.
