AppBox Strengthens Board With Two Senior Hires as It Targets 10 Million Downloads
LONDON, United Kingdom, May 27, 2016
Mobile applications developer AppBox Media PLC (AppBox), has today appointed two technology veterans to its board.
David Hampshire will take up the role of director of app design. He has worked at some of Europe’s leading digital mobile agencies. He has a track record in creating clean, simplistic, striking design work across a range of mediums. He is also the co-creator of gaming apps, Hyperchrome and Fall .
Joining as AppBox’s director of publishing is Mike Davison. He has over ten years’ experience in the digital sector with a focus on mobile, delivering a range of eCommerce and global solutions (both product side and in agency environments), specialising in agile delivery. He is also the creator of Bounce, the hit game with over 7 million downloads across Google Play and Apple App Store.
Already in 2016 AppBox has launched eight apps, most recently patient care app, CareBuddy and child safety app, PawPrints, and is currently working on the release of Chasm and Drop, which it expects to be two of the major game releases on to the App store this summer. In total, the company has developed and launched 20 apps since the company launched in 2013.
In addition, the company has been developing its partnerships with other business to develop apps on their behalf. Most recently it designed and built the Radio Lollipop app for Great Ormond Street Hospital’s volunteer run radio station.
Commenting on the appointments, Polat Hassan, CEO, said:
“AppBox Media as a company has gone from strength to strength over the previous three years, and to attract people with the track record and pedigree of Mike and David is a testament to the strong position the company finds itself in.
“As we target a cumulative download figure of 10 million downloads across our portfolio of apps by the first quarter of 2017, which we believe will make us one of the fastest growing app companies in the UK, it is important we invest in our talent to help realise our vision of becoming one of world’s leading game software and mobile applications developers”
AppBox is currently considering a seventh round of fund raising.
