Marketing technology agency Potato has announced the appointment of digital media entrepreneur Dylan Collins as chairman.

Potato founder, Jason Cartwright, commented: “One of the factors which makes Potato an amazing company for both our team and our clients is that we’re constantly looking for the very best people in the world.

“The unique insight Dylan provides from a commercial perspective and as a highly technical entrepreneur fits our developer driven ethos perfectly. As the marketing needs of our clients become ever more complex, I’m looking forward to working with him as we build the next generation of massively scalable, beautifully built web applications.”

As CEO and investor, Collins has been responsible for growing technology and entertainment companies across Europe including Box of Awesome, Fight My Monster, Jolt Online and DemonWare. He is also chairman of a technology-focused private equity firm and an advisor to a number of companies in Europe and the US. Collins was also recently named as the Irish government’s start up ambassador.

Collins added: “I first got to know Jason and Luke several years ago and have watched with awe as they built Potato into the technology powerhouse it is today. They’re easily the top marketing technology team in Europe and one of the very best in the world at what they do. It’s a genuine privilege to join their board.”
