Advanced shopper engagement technology provider ComQi has appointed Rob Keve, founder of the Fizzback Group, as executive chairman for the company, according to a company announcement.
Keve will support the management team while overseeing ComQi's Board of Directors. As ComQi continues to build its global footprint in the retail space through consumer engagement technology, the company said, Keve's "experience and insights will be pivotal in the company's growth and development."
Ajay Chowdhury, ComQi's current executive chairman, will step down and join ComQi's advisory board, the announcement said.
"I am delighted with the appointment of such a respected and accomplished business leader to ComQi's board," ComQi CEO Ifti Ifhar said in the announcement. "Rob is bringing a tremendous amount of experience to our business and many new ideas that will further enhance our strategic position in the marketplace, especially for Passport, our in-store mobile interactive solution. I would also like to thank Ajay for his valuable contributions to ComQi over the last six years and I look forward to continuing to work with him on our advisory board."
The Fizzback Group, which Keve founded, is a technology provider for real-time customer feedback and customer experience management in the retail space. He also has held several executive positions for NICE Group, 3K Digital, Tufton Capital and Booz Allen & Hamilton, with particular expertise in business strategy, sales and operations. He received his MBA from Northwestern University's Kellogg School of Management, and his BA in Philosophy and BS in Mathematics from the University of Bristol.
"This is an exciting time to be joining ComQi with its global client footprint and groundbreaking innovation," he said in the announcement. "Passport is truly unique in the value it brings the retailer as it links the shopper and the retailer during the shopping journey driving incremental sales and feeding valuable analytics back to the retailer. I look forward to helping the company achieve even greater success."
