TAIGER leaps into global markets as ex-IBM’s Bruno Di Leo joins the Board of Directors
On 11th March 2021, we welcomed Bruno Di Leo to TAIGER’s Board of Directors. The senior executive brings with him years of experience in advisory roles and in scaling enterprises through global growth trajectories. In particular, the TAIGER team is excited to tap into Bruno’s experience in driving commercial success for IBM’s global markets, which will be a strong asset in shaping TAIGER’s strategic plans towards a massive expansion across the globe.
“As we look to establish ourselves in key markets such as Latin America and Eastern Europe, I am delighted to have Bruno join our board of directors and advisory board,” said Sinuhé Arroyo, founder and chief executive officer at TAIGER. “Bruno’s deep experience in leading IBM’s global business operations will prove invaluable for us. We look forward to his contributions.”
Bruno’s entry marks a big step for us, as a relatively young local tech company attracting such a global heavy weight. Bruno, whose last appointment was IBM’s Senior Vice President of Global Markets, oversaw 220,000 employees across 140 countries and was responsible for generating over US$20B in revenue. As Singapore gears up in its aspiration to become the Silicon Valley of Asia, TAIGER is turning heads with a strong potential in emerging as a Singapore-based unicorn with a global presence—with an expanding accredited advisory board and a game-changing AI platform due for launch.
“We are pleased to welcome Bruno to our board of directors,” said chief commercial officer David Padgett. “His timely arrival goes hand-in-hand with the launch of our new Omnitive Platform. Our ongoing discussions about TAIGER’s growth plans are transformational and we are confident he will provide valuable perspectives as we continue to execute our strategy and accelerate our growth.”
“TAIGER has an exciting vision and a strong unique value proposition in what their technology can do,” said Di Leo. “I’m excited to join this globally diverse AI company that’s turning heads around the world. What we need to do now is to strengthen our local capabilities and partnerships in our various markets to serve our clients better.”
Now with Bruno on board, the team at TAIGER is increasingly encouraged to continue bolstering our offering and join the global tech fraternity. More than that, Bruno’s faith in TAIGER is also testament to Singapore’s capability and competitiveness in grooming innovative tech startups to become global-ready and resilient tech companies. Just like how organisations such as StartupSG, SGInnovate and SGTech have contributed to our growth, we are deeply excited to be taking momentous steps to advance the local tech startup ecosystem.
