Our next Pitch Event is on 17th March and will be moderated by Russell Buckley. Russell has been described as the “Godfather of mobile marketing.”  In 2006, he was the first employee of the mobile ad network, AdMob, which was sold to Google for $750m a few years later. 

Russell is a member of the UK Government’s Venture Capital Unit focused on helping the leading UK tech companies get Series A funding. He is a very active mentor, advisor, board member and angel investor in UK tech companies.  He has over 25 angels investments to-date through Ballpark Ventures.  

Prior to AdMob Russell was Director of Marketing at a location based advertising service ZagMe and was also Global Chairman of the Board of The Mobile Marketing Association.  Before specializing in mobile, he spent over 15 years working in marketing, including advising leading brands such as Coca-Cola, Diageo, Texaco and Mars. 

Russell is most likely to say “The mobile will do to the PC, what the PC did to the mainframe”, “exponential” and “No thanks, I’m a vegetarian”.
