We are very pleased to announce that Gerard Bredenoord has joined Amiweb as an Advisor. His experience is gained at the highest level in some of the worlds’ leading professional services firms. We are pleased that he shares our vision for Amiweb. He will be instrumental to us when we intend to launch publicly – around mid-September 2012. This appointment seals and energises our core proposition – which is built directly from the many fantastic, private conversations we’ve been having with decision-makers at blue chips, law firms and corporates. We are very excited about the future, with very solid confirmation that many firms share our vision. Our time in stealth has enabled us to build out and refine our team, platform and products to be exactly in tune to real market needs. This is what Gerard had to say on his appointment:
I have taken up a role in Amiweb as I inherently believe social technologies can significantly add to enterprise competitiveness
