Singapore-based Andrew Darling left the location-specialist ad tech company last week after helping lead its global growth over the last three years.

A former journalist specialising in technology, Darling has spent the last 14 years leading communications for a number of London tech organisations, including AIME, OpenMarket and TBG Digital.

He first joined what-was-then known as Blis Media in 2014 as communications director for the EMEA region, before relocating to Singapore to take on the global role in 2016.

He said: “When I came on board three and a half years ago, there were only 20 of us [at Blis] and two offices in London and Singapore. To have had a part to play in scaling the business to 17 offices and 325 people – plus rebranding Blis Media to Blis – is a huge achievement and I’m very proud to have had a role in that.”

“However, it’s now time to move on. It’s a natural evolution for me and I’m looking forward to a new opportunity. The business is doing really well and North America is becoming a big focus, so I think the business will shift that way now.”

Blis declined to comment when contacted by Mumbrella Asia.

Darling said in the period immediately leaving Blis he would carry out consultancy work for the company and other brands before seeking new opportunities.
