Ovum CEO’s next venture targets SMB CFOs

Ovum’s former (and final) CEO Chris Dines and Fash Darabi (previously Managing Director, Ovum Telecoms) are in the midst of launching a new business. It’s called Knowledge Peers, and is a service targeted at financial decision makers in small and medium enterprises.

Chris writes: “It combines ready access to high quality advice and support together with a peer group networking platform specifically tailored to this market. If you go to www.knowledgepeers.com you will find our demonstration site, tour and registration area.

“We already have a lot of backing and support for this, and are currently recruiting founder members, associates and facilitators. All these roles receive a variety of rewards depending on level input (including equity and cash remuneration). We will also be recruiting full time, in house, staff in Q2 2008.

“If you know of people who might be interested, and suited, to this opportunity please pass this message on. You’d be very welcome to phone us on 020 3051 9618 or visit our office at 3 More London Riverside.”
