Revenue for the leading mobile advertising platform grew 90% in APAC in 2021
SINGAPORE–(BUSINESS WIRE)–LoopMe, a leading brand-focused mobile advertising platform, has announced a number of appointments across the APAC region, including four senior hires: Daisuke Shigeishi as Head of Digital Partnerships, Georgia Watson as Senior Sales Director, Akihito Morita as Sales Director, and James Symonds as Senior Sales Director ANZ. This follows recent investment by Mayfair Equity Partners and strong revenue growth, with the company achieving $114 million in revenue in the last 12 months.
