He brings over 20 years executive experience in general and sales management experience to SocialBakers.

Neil Weston commented, “Socialbakers has an impressive lead on the market for both brands and agencies to understand and optimise their social marketing performance. It has an opportunity to be the clear market leader by expanding the product portfolio, increasing coverage geographically and vertically with a focus on raising the ROI from Social. Opportunities like this rarely arise, and I am excited to be working with such a dynamic team.”
