Brave Bison, the social video company, is pleased to announce that it has appointed Kate Burns, a former senior Google and AOL executive, to the board as a Non-Executive Director with immediate effect. Kate will also join the remuneration and audit committees on appointment.

Kate has a wealth of experience within the advertising and media industry and is currently a Venture Partner at Hambro Perks, an investment firm. Kate also held a range of roles at Google during her 6 years at the company and was their first employee outside the United States. Before joining Hambro Perks, Kate was CEO of AOL Europe, following which she joined BuzzFeed as European General Manager.

Sir Robin Miller, Chairman of Brave Bison commented: “Kate’s digital publishing experience through a successful career in leadership roles at some of the biggest digital companies in the world, from Google to Buzzfeed, will prove invaluable in executing our strategy as a leading social media company in terms of content creation, worldwide distribution and strategic input to our customers. We welcome her on board.”

Claire Hungate, CEO of Brave Bison, said: “The digital publishing experience Kate has gained through her time in senior leadership roles at global digital giants will prove invaluable as we focus on executing our strategy in order to drive the Company towards profitability and leveraging our position as a leading social video company – Tubular Labs’ recent monthly data for May ranked Brave Bison as 2nd globally in the category “Most Views – Media and Entertainment Properties”.”

Kate Burns commented: “I am so thrilled to be joining Brave Bison at such an exciting time in their strategy. Social video continues to provide both brands and audiences a platform to be entertained and to share great content, and Brave Bison is a leading player in this space. I’m looking forward to working closely with the Board and the Exec team and helping them take Brave Bison from strength to strength.”
