Cofounder and marketing guru of Spreets Justus Hammer has leapt back into the marketing pool again, this time with mobile payment Mint Wireless.
Hammer joins as Chief Marketing Officer. Although we have not seen him in the spotlight after Spreets was sold to Yahoo!7 for AUD$40 million in 2012. Hammer has remained an investor, advisor and non-executive director to startups – VICE Golf, Airtasker and Tempurer. Prior to Spreets, he was responsible for all marketing activities at GetPrice.
The board of directors at Mint Wireless and Chief Executive Officer, Alex Teoh, warmly welcomed members on their new management team.
Alex Teoh said in a statement to 4Traders, “Fred, Justus and Bjorn bring a collective experience in e-commerce, online retail and working with high profile companies to Mint Wireless that is invaluable both from a strategic and skills perspective.”
“Their experience will lay the foundation for Mint Wireless’ further growth and expansion in Australia and Europe. Having established successful careers overseas, they will also be bringing an added dimension of experience on how we can internationalise Mint Wireless as we expand globally.”
