He was responsible for leading two of the largest tech IPOs in history - Alibaba and Snap
Renowned technology investor and entrepreneur Imran Khan on Thursday was announced as the new chairman of the board for Aleph Holding, global partner to the world’s biggest digital media players.
He will work closely with Gaston Taratuta, founder and CEO of Aleph Holding, as the organization eyes significant new growth targets, said a press release.
Aleph is on track to hit $1 billion in revenue this year.
It connects the biggest players in digital media (including Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Snapchat, Twitch and TikTok) with the advertisers that rely on them, whether they are global brands or aspiring entrepreneurs.
Khan will help the company scale beyond this milestone by accessing new markets, acquiring additional partners and continuing to diversify its service and technology offering, the release also said.
He was responsible for leading two of the largest tech IPOs in history - Alibaba and Snap – and is known for joining businesses that are primed for accelerated growth.
The company ensures that the opportunities offered by digital media are available in every corner of the globe - and does this in over 70 markets worldwide.
"Aleph Holding has a global infrastructure that is underpinned by genuine local expertise, and combines this with innovative technology in a way no other business in this space can. This is a model with a profound opportunity to scale," said Imran Khan.
“Imran brings a huge amount of expertise to our business, and his combination of entrepreneurial thinking and global technology experience are the perfect fit for the next stage in our journey,” states Gaston Taratuta, CEO of Aleph Holding.
“I founded the business in 2005 with just $5,000, and today we’re looking to close a year at $1bn in revenue. We see significant new commercial opportunities in Aleph, and Imran will play a key role in helping us achieve them," he added.
Khan, born and raised in Bangladesh was a prominent debater during his early days.
He later on moved to the United States as a student and graduated from the University of Denver's Daniels College of Business in 2000.
