Pureprofile today announced three new appointments to its Australian team, including  new head of data, innovation and product Young Ham, who joins from rival research company Kantar.

Pureprofile, an ASX listed market and data research company, completed an $18.8 million recapitalisation in December to grow its data sources and expand its Software-as-a-Service offering.

The company reported record revenue of $8.2 million last quarter and has expanded its global footprint with new offices in Singapore and mainland Europe. Its share price, however, remains at just $0.026 after peaking at around $0.60 in 2016.

Today, the company announced three new senior appointments. In addition to Ham, Kate Richards takes over as interim head of sales, data & insights ANZ for 12 months, and Tom Hamilton has been appointed senior account director in the data and insights team.

New head of data, innovation and product Young Ham, has close to two decades of experience in the research industry, working for companies including Kantar, Lightspeed Research and TNS.

“We are thrilled to welcome Young, Kate and Tom to our team as we ramp up for a successful year,” said Pureprofile’s CEO Martin Filz.

“Pureprofile achieved great success in 2020, as more organisations than ever looked to the value of first-party data to foster a deep understanding of their customers. As we move towards a cookieless world by 2022, we look forward to continuing to grow our global team to deliver valuable insights to companies around the world.”

Head of Data, Innovation and Product, Young Ham, said: “I’m excited to be joining Pureprofile as the business grows its global footprint from our headquarters in Sydney, and I look forward to using my experience to support Pureprofile’s product innovation vision.”
