Former BBC Knowledge Management Head Euan Semple Joins Cogenz’s Board of Directors


Social Computing Guru Joins Enterprise Social Bookmarking Solution Provider

LONDON, 29 August 2007

Cogenz today announced that Euan Semple, former head of knowledge management solutions at the BBC, has joined the Company’s Board of Directors.

“Euan brings an incredible wealth of knowledge and wisdom to Cogenz from having brought social computing to one of the most respected organisations in the world,” said Niall Cook, Cogenz’s CEO. “Euan has always been an avid supporter of Cogenz and we’re excited and honoured that he has chosen to serve on Cogenz’s board.”

“Cogenz has done an incredible job in delivering the simplest enterprise social bookmarking solution I have seen,” said Euan Semple. “I believe that social bookmarking is one of the dark horses of social computing. Everyone saves bookmarks and Cogenz makes these patterns of interest available to others in an organisation, creating a rich and powerful source of business conversations.”

Mr Semple spent 21 years at the BBC, culminating in a senior knowledge management position where he used social computing tools to revolutionise the way staff speak to one another internally. He also has over five years of unparalleled experience learning how to make the most of today’s wired-up world of work and how businesses can prepare themselves for the challenges and the opportunities it represents. He is highly connected to the most influential movers and shakers of this new environment and his workshops, which have been described as inspirational, have already been experienced by many diverse audiences worldwide.
