Weve has appointed The Daily Mail Group’s Richard Shamsi as chief financial officer.

Having working for 11 years with DMG, Shamsi initially ran a multi-million pound acquisition programme, acquiring many high profile digital brands such as Jobsite.com and Primelocation.com.

He then became chief financial officer and chief operating officer for PrimeLocation.com and Findaproperty.com, two of these acquired brands.

Said Shamsi: “The intersection between media, mobile and data is one of the most exciting sectors of the media industry and for that reason I am delighted to be joining Weve. I know my experience at The Daily Mail Group and the way we grew and evolved our digital business will be hugely relevant and valuable to my new role in the company.”

Tim Hipperson, chief executive of Weve, added: “Throughout his career Richard has been involved in new digital businesses and has always approached them with vigour and an entrepreneurial spirit. We’re delighted to welcome him into the business. Richard’s drive and determination will help cement our position as the UK leader in mobile media, and his experience both in the digital and media space means that Weve can build on its current success and look towards new and future revenue streams.”
