Google's marketing director moves to a startup

As MarketingWeek reports, after nine years at tech giant Google, James Elias rejoined the startup world as CMO at education startup Avado, claiming that digital learning for businesses “hasn’t been cracked yet”.

“I had nine amazing years at Google,” says Elias, who notes the “pretty extraordinary growth” of the business during his time there. While he describes his former role as marketing director in UK and Ireland as “a fantastic opportunity”, he felt compelled to return to the startup world.

“If you were to ask me at any point in that journey what I was going to do next, it would always have been to work in an early stage business or startup,” he admits. “It’s what I did before I joined Google and there was always a bit of me hankering to go back to that environment.”

When Elias joined Google’s London team in 2007 it had fewer than 400 employees, by the time he left last summer that number had rocketed to 4,500. Κάνοντας Like στο Facebook ενημερώνεστε άμεσα για τα νέα άρθρα -->
