For the past nine years she has served as NED, Chair and Committee lead on a number of growing UK technology companies, contributing to strategic growth and value capture for shareholders and engaging US co-investors. She was named to the Sunday Times finalist list for Non-Executive Director Awards” in 2018 and also named by Investment Week magazine as Investment Woman of the Year.
Kelsey replaces Dr. Mark Reilly, who today announces his resignation from the board of directors after serving since 2017.
John Pearson, non-executive chairman at Mirriad, said: “Kelsey is a great appointment for Mirriad. Her wealth of experience in Silicon Valley and in London aligns perfectly with the renewed technology focus that will define Mirriad as the in-content solution for a new era in audience engagement. We look forward to drawing on her impressive technology and strategic growth credentials as Mirriad seeks to deliver further long-term scale.”
“On behalf of myself and the Board, I would also like to extend a huge thank you to Mark Reilly for his work and guidance to bring Mirriad to its current market-leading position.”
Kelsey Lynn Skinner, incoming non-executive director at Mirriad, said: “Mirriad immediately stands out as a true innovator in a fast-changing sector. The company’s technology will enable an important new era of non-intrusive advertising, and the leadership team is stellar. I’m excited to join the board for this promising next chapter, including additional US market growth.”
