Tech North executive joins Ash TV as its first Chairman

Ash TV has appointed Tech North’s Richard Gregory as the smart video advertiser’s first Chairman.

Richard, Executive Chair of Tech North’s Advisory Board, brings management and tech-savvy experience to the young and growing Hull company, which has opened offices in France, Germany and the Netherlands in the last 12 months.

Some of Mr Gregory’s career highlights include 12 years at a senior level at agency Latitude Digital Marketing, with ten years as chief operating office and two years as managing director, and co-founding SAScon, the Search, Analytics & Social Conference.

Until December last year Mr Gregory was director of Tech North, before moving to his current and more strategic advisory role ahead of Tech North’s transition in April to Tech Nation.

Ash Lewis, Ash TV’s CEO, said: “Richard has great agency, communications, business and strategic expertise and has worked at the heart of the tech industry in the north of the country for many years while growing significant, strong, sustainable and robustly financed corporate assets.

“Ash TV and our teams here in the UK and mainland Europe will benefit greatly from the experience, insights, connections and mentoring support he will be able to bring to the business as we consolidate the current phase of development and look to initiate new product launches and media partnerships.

“His involvement will also be a great addition to the Hull and Humber’s vibrant digital economy.”

While at Tech North, Richard was able to help build regional, national and international awareness of the north of England’s tech strengths and opportunities. He holds various non-executive and trustee positions, including as chairman of Liverpool-based tech start-up, Ruler Analytics; he is a member of the Manchester Digital Council.

Richard Gregory said: “Ash TV has already seen impressive growth and secured its first round of funding in a very short time. The business is already working with some brilliant clients and partners and I’m excited to dive in to help Ash and the team secure a huge chunk of the growing mobile video advertising market.”
