ShoZu’s CEO Mark Bole is a departing and chairman Chris Wade is taking on both roles at the London-based company. It’s not been long. Wade, a veteran technology executive and entrepreneur, has only been chairman since 2008. However Bole did lead Shozu for almost 5 years, so is now off to “seek a fresh challenge” he says.
He leaves the company in decent health – Shozu closed a new funding round earlier this year – and he remains a significant shareholder in the company.
ShoZu has made the successful transition to an app store centric model. However, where it goes from here it’s hard to say. Plenty of other apps do what it does now – uploading photos and content to multiple sites – although it remains the daddy in terms of the sheer numbers of services you can use it for.
