International. Bitcentral has selected Gregory Mason to be its new president, effective May 27, with the goal of continuing the company's significant growth and product innovation in the coming years.
Mason, who will also join Bitcentral's board of directors, has a long strategic and results-based track record in a wide range of digital arenas, including media, markets and SaaS, and assumes the role of president replacing Camille Jayne, Bitcentral's president since March 2017, who retires on June 30 after an illustrious 38-year business career.
Mason joins Bitcentral with two decades of experience in executive leadership roles, including most recently as President/Founder of GAM Consulting. Prior to that, Mason was CEO and Director at Purch, Inc., a digital and market publishing platform uniquely positioned at the intersection of content, commerce and services. Under his leadership, the company increased revenue from $25 million to more than $125 million, followed by a successful exit to Future PLC.
Mason was selected to play the role of President of Bitcentral after an extensive five-month search process. Jayne, part of the search committee, will remain in a brief transition until June 30 before retiring, after more than 19 years with Bitcentral as board director and the last three and a half years as chairman.
Bitcentral founder and CEO Fred Fourcher said: "Greg Mason will be a great leader, partner and complement to me and our management team, and I know he will fit extremely well into our company's culture and values. The board and I agree that his expertise in all aspects of the digital video ecosystem, along with his management expertise and mergers and acquisitions, is just what we need to catapult Bitcentral and FUEL ™, our digital streaming platform, for even greater success."
Mason received an MBA from the University of San Francisco and a bachelor's degree in business administration from the University of Nevada. He is a board director of HealthiNation and has carried out advisory work on digital transformation for companies and investors spanning Insurtech, SportsTech, E:Commerce and Marketplaces.
