Brown joined the company back in February 2017 as the MD of Media Business. However, his rise was swift. After just 2 years they promoted him to Chief Digital Officer, and then to Chief Product Officer. Then, after the board decided they needed a change of CEO, he took over Robin Reed’s role as the temporary CEO on September 5th, 2019.
