Zeotap, the next-generation Customer Data Platform (CDP), has announced new appointments, with Frank Einecke and Domitille Doat-Le Bigot joining the company’s Board, and Tibor Stefán appointed as SVP sales & customer success. The new appointments will support the company in meeting growing demand driven by its new Google Cloud partnership, established at the start of this year, and with the global CDP market projected to grow from $3.5B in 2021 to $15.3B in 2026.
The two new Board appointments will bring Zeotap’s board membership to seven members, supporting Zeotap’s leadership team in driving the company’s privacy-first proposition:
- Frank Einecke, recently appointed CEO of privacy-focused advertising technology company Eyeo. Based in Berlin, he spent 15 years leading Google’s multi-billion-dollar global partnerships business, prior to which he held roles at Volkswagen, Bosch and McKinsey.
- Domitille Doat-Le Bigot, chief digital officer of investment company Eurazeo. Based in Paris, she spent over five years as Chief Digital Officer of Danone, prior to which she held digital leadership positions at Fred & Farid, Ubisoft and Cisco.
“As we work towards the goal of being Europe’s leading Customer Data Platform, we’re excited to welcome Frank and Domitille to the Board. With world-class expertise that spans multiple industries, we look forward to how their contribution can help Zeotap deliver even more for its customers and partners,” said Chris Scoggins, partner at SignalFire and existing Zeotap board member.
“I’m delighted to be joining Zeotap at such a pivotal moment in its journey,” said Einecke. “The rising tide of digital privacy in Europe has created a demand for a solution that is built to meet the conditions of this environment, and this is where Zeotap occupies a truly unique position.”
“With the approaching deprecation of third-party cookies upending the marketing industry, there’s no more exciting time for solutions like Zeotap to shape the future of how brands interact with their customers,” said Doat-Le Bigot. “I look forward to working with Daniel, Projjol and the rest of the leadership team in delivering on that promise.”
Tibor Stefan joins as Zeotap’s new SVP of sales & customer success, overseeing management of an extensive stable of customers that now includes Audi, Virgin Media, and Coca Cola, and continuing to drive Zeotap’s growth throughout Europe.
He joins following four years at Swiss cloud technology provider LzLabs, and previously spent over five years at software company BMC.
Daniel Heer, founder and CEO of Zeotap, said: “Tibor’s appointment is the culmination of an extensive search for the best European talent, and we’re confident that his approach will deliver outstanding results for our customers, partners and team.”
"Zeotap is one of the critical pieces of the puzzle that brands need to survive in a privacy-first future,” said Stefán. “I'm excited to play my part in delivering on Zeotap’s mission to make privacy a meaningful part of end-user relationships for as many brands as possible."
