Australian taxi app and mobile payments provider, ingogo, has recruited Nine Entertainment’s former marketing director as its first CMO.

Jeff Lim was previously the marketing director for Mi9, ninemsn, 9jumpin and the Daily Mail Australia for 18 months on contract, and has 15 years’ experience in marketing roles. Previous positions include global head of marketing at The Travel Corporate for the AAT Kings Group, as well as several years as marketing director for the Domain, Drive and MyCareer brands at Fairfax.

He joined ingogo as the first CMO and will be responsible for strategy development, brand positioning, campaign execution, product development and content. In a statement, ingogo’s founder and CEO, Hamish Petrie, said it was important to build the marketing function in order to support and foster the company’s next phase of growth.

“Jeff will be driving a number of key marketing initiatives to further grow our business,” he said. Petrie said ingogo will make additional marketing and product team hires in the next six month.

“We want our marketing efforts to reflect the innovative culture here at ingogo, so we are thrilled to have a leader with Jeff’s experience and expertise on the team,” he added.

Lim said he was looking forward to joining the fast-growing business, noting its shift from startup to disruptive tech business. The company was established first in Sydney in 2001 and has been operating in Melbourne since last year.

“Disruptor brands like ingogo are forcing us to change ‘the way we’ve always done things’ and I’m looking forward to being a part of that by helping ingogo along its growth path.”

The company recently expanded its drive network nationally and will launch taxi services in Brisbane, Perth and Adelaide shortly. Other recent initiatives include the launch of a revamped app, as well as a partnership with expense management solution provider, Concur, for taxi travel expenses.

When friction can be a brand’s best friend

I always enjoy those oft-forgotten, in-between moments in any experience. These moments are not necessarily part of any defined experience per se. They likely wouldn’t show up in an organisation’s plans or ideas to help make the customer journey or user flow as simple, easy and seamless as possible.

How much attention should we be paying to the ‘attention economy’?

There’s been a lot of buzz in the advertising industry lately about what’s coined the ‘attention economy’. And it’s fast becoming the new battleground for media channels to prove their wares and to develop and espouse new attention metrics.

Sometimes the best solutions are some of the most counterintuitive

Exceptional CMOs do exceptional things for themselves and for those they inspire. At your best you are creative, innovative and inspirational. We have a problem though. We now live in a corporate world that demands sensibility where everything you do is measurable and stakeholders demand predictability – the antithesis of breakthrough and transformation.
