Omnisient appoints Houldsworth as Board Chairman

Omnisient has appointed Tony Houldsworth as the Chairman of its Board to drive the company’s expansion in new markets. The announcement comes shortly after the privacy enhancing technology company concluded an expansion round which saw commitments from The Shoprite Group and Buffet Investments.

Tony joined our Advisory Board in March, and it quickly became evident that his knowledge and experience in the technology and retail sectors are invaluable in helping us achieve our international expansion objectives

Jon Jacobson, CEO & Co-founder

The industry veteran was recently the Group CEO of Inflexion-backed Flooid, a retail tech platform headquartered in the UK that also has a US presence.

Houldsworth has also built retail technology businesses in the UK & Europe, US and South Africa. And is therefore well placed to drive growth not only in the UK, but also the Philippines, Nigeria and the UAE—all of which have been identified as growth markets for next year.
