Initial details over at Rick Segal’s blog:
But before you pick up that rock or fire off that rant, how about a well done for Jeremy, Duncan, Darren, Shai for working hard to build a business, actually have revenue (!), and showing the passion, excitement, and drive that, in the end, will matter the most. Well done, folks, well done.
As a part of the deal, Rick Segal will be joining b5media’s board as Chairman along with Mark Skapinker, Managing Partner at Brightspark. Their first major new hire will likely be a new head (Director/VP) of Sales – which will be a nice add to help drive sales and profits.
In addition, Shel Israel, who has been working with b5 during their VC funding rounds, will likely join in some sort of advisory capacity. Rick hints at this in his blog post as well.
Our own Aaron Brazell will join b5media fulltime:
I will be joining b5media full time as the Technology Manager, but I think Technology Architect/Strategist is more descriptive.
I also expect other b5media folks to come onboard fulltime as well…
b5media’s official press release is up here.
Darren Rowse posts some thoughts over at b5media’s blog.
Congrats to the gang! Now we’ll see where things go..
More details coming…
