Global Personals, the people behind White Label Dating and sites such as Singles365.com, have appointed Matthew Pitt as its new Operations Director. Matthew will lead international growth and development for Global Personals and their platform, WhiteLabelDating.com.
He joins Global Personals Ltd from The Dating Lab where he was Managing Director, heading up their UK and international business-to-business accounts. He has more than fifteen years’ experience in the digital media industry, with extensive knowledge of the online dating industry as well as other e-commerce sectors.
A key figure in the digital dating business, Matthew has represented the dating industry at a number of media events and has provided board level advice and direction to some of the world’s leading media owners and digital businesses, enabling them to significantly increase online revenues and ROI. He comments:
“Global Personals is one of the most dynamic, entrepreneurial and fastest growing companies in Britain. To be asked to play a key part in their management team as Operations Director, to help them and their WhiteLabelDating.com partners build on this success internationally was too good an opportunity to turn down.”
Matthew was hired by Ross Williams, Global Personals’ Co-founder and CEO. He adds:
“It is an exciting time to be part of Global Personals: we are on a winning streak, both with our dating brands such as Singles365, DatingAgency and FlirtFix, but also through our business-to-business dating platform WhiteLabelDating.com that powers sites for a number of media brands and individuals including Bauer Media, The Independent, Nat Mags and Dennis Publishing. We experienced our highest revenue in company history last month and have exciting plans for international growth in 2011. We are confident that Matthew will play a leading management role in the continued growth and success of this company.”
The Dating Trail team wish Matthew well in his new position with Global Personals.
As Managing Director of London's premier speed dating firm Original Dating, Andrew has huge experience of the dating scene and has been helping people meet since 2002. Andrew co-founded Dating Trail in 2008 and is a driving force behind this website.
