Vancouver's Tagga announced this week the appointment of veteran entrepreneur, Olivier Vincent to its Board of Directors.
Vincent founded Canpages, a Canadian local search and directory company that led the market in digitizing marketing solutions for small to medium sized businesses. In 2009, Canpages was acquired by Yellow Pages for $225 million, marking one of Vancouver’s largest acquisitions in recent years.
Vincent is currently Vice Chairman at DigiBC, a mentor for a local accelerator GrowLab and working on a new technology venture.
Tagga’s campaign management platform is used by ad agencies and brands across North America to better optimize and measure their multi-channel marketing efforts.
Tagga was added to the finalist list for Deloitte & Touche’ Top 100 Emerging Companies in Canada, The 2012 Ready to Rocket List, and the Top 100 Red Herring North American List for 2011. Tagga CEO Amielle Lake was named one of Techvibes Digital Media People to Watch in BC in 2011.
