Buckley Flies the Eagle Eye Coop

Eagle Eye CMO, Russell Buckley, is to step down from his full-time role at mobile couponing and vouchering company, Eagle Eye Solutions, with effect from February, though he will continue to act in an advisory capacity in the future and support the company in an ad hoc role. The news was revealed in a post on the Eagle Eye blog.

“When I started at Eagle Eye, Steve Rothwell [CEO] and I agreed that the day would come when I could take a step back and pursue my many other interests in mobile and technology, as an investor, advisor and mentor, as well as a speaker and writer,” says Buckley in the post. “I’m pleased to say that the job I was appointed to do is now complete. We’ve recruited a great sales and marketing team, establishing the Eagle Eye brand and marketing assets, and put Eagle Eye on the map as the leader in mobile coupons and the voice of authority in the sector. With a raft of new clients coming on board in 2012, I’m very confident that Steve’s leadership will continue to deliver fantastic results for all of Eagle Eye’s stakeholders.”

“Russell joined us at a critical time in our corporate development, and achieved all the goals we set when he joined,” says Rothwell. “We have always known the time would come when Russell would leave to pursue his other interests, and we are very sad this time has come. I am very pleased that he will maintain his interest in the company and be an advisor to us as we continue our rapid growth. Personally, I thank Russell for all his hard work, support and friendship over the past year and I look forward to working with him again in the future.”
