Textbroker Announces New CEO and Realignment to Better Unify its Global Product Offering
Former CEO – Americas, Phillip Thune, Takes Over as Global CEO
Textbroker, the world’s leading platform for unique, custom content, announced today that Phillip Thune has been appointed the global CEO in an effort to unify each of Textbroker’s ten international locales. Thune, the former acting CEO – Americas, has presided over the U.S.- based platform since 2010, and will now lead the entire organization through its next growth period. In a corresponding move, Founder Jan Becker-Fochler will transition into the role of Managing Director where he will preside over customer experience and product development.
“Our shift in corporate structure is an extremely positive change for Textbroker,” commented Thune. “Jan came up with the concept of crowdsourced content creation for companies, along with most of our major platform innovations over the last nine years, so he is the best person to lead our efforts to create and build new offerings and determine how we can make our platform and product the best in our industry.”
“Since 2010, Phillip has been my partner in leading Textbroker growth in ten countries and languages,” said Becker-Fochler. “I fully trust his skills, experience and integrity. He has led global companies in the past to tremendous success, and I am confident that we are in good hands under his strategic leadership.“
The transition will further Textbroker as a high-quality content marketplace for product descriptions, blog posts, and technical articles for its clients around the world.
