Tile Promotes Co-Founder Mike Farley to Chief Executive Officer
Former CEO Nick Evans transitions to company advisor
San Mateo, Calif. – (January 7, 2015) – Today Tile, the tiny wearable for the things you never want to lose, announces that co-founder Mike Farley has been promoted to CEO, with co-founder and former CEO Nick Evans assuming an advisor role with the company. Mike Farley previously served as Chief Operating Officer.
Evans and Farley co-founded Tile together in 2012, and have jointly led the company over the past two and a half years. During his tenure as CEO, Evans helped kick off their successful crowdfunding campaign, and helped create the foundation for the company’s marketing efforts.
“Nick’s involvement as CEO was instrumental in creating a world-class startup in Silicon Valley. I’ve worked with Nick since Tile’s inception and I can’t express enough how appreciative I am for his contributions during that time. We are both passionate about the Tile Community and forever grateful for the continued support of Tile’s mission,” said Farley. “While we have seen great success so far, our potential as a company has just begun. The culture at Tile was built on a strong legacy of innovation, and I wish to focus that energy and talent to continue growing one of the premier ‘Internet of Things’ brands. ”
“Working with Mike over the last 2 years to grow Tile from the ground up has been one of the most exciting and rewarding experiences of my life,” said Evans. “I never could have imagined that what started out as a small idea between friends would lead us to where we are today. It has been a privilege leading Tile’s incredibly talented team, and though I’ll miss being involved day-to-day, I look forward to my next move while serving as an advisor to Tile.”
Tile recently launched on Android, a move intended to dramatically extend Tile’s global network, and finished fulfilling all pre-orders placed during Tile’s crowdfunding campaign. With pre-orders complete, Tile is now shipping all orders immediately and is available on Amazon via their Wearable Technology Store, making it easier than ever to order Tile.
