Gilbert Hill, CEO at Tapmydata:
Privacy Technologist, Marketer and Entrepreneur. I am currently CEO at Tap, where we build tools for citizens to take control of their personal data – a new breed of CRM.
After a career in Finance, as MD of London digital agency I grew fascinated by the relationship between data, digital marketing and regulation, founding Optanon, a pioneering software product in the ‘PrivTech’ sector, and Cookiepedia, a knowledge base for consumer tracking on the Web.
After a sustained period of organic growth and profit, these businesses were acquired by OneTrust and I led the deal, migration of legacy clients, team and technology while establishing new operational teams across Europe.
I have advised, educated and helped businesses, investors and non-profits understand and build on the risks and opportunities around E-Privacy, GDPR, Ethical Marketing and Web Governance on a consultancy basis.
On a voluntary basis, I sit on the Responsible Marketing Committee of the DMA, and a member of its GDPR Taskforce, having previously Chaired the Mobile & Connected Council. I am supporter of Tech London Advocates in the areas of Creative Tech & Blockchain, and act as Privacy Spokesperson for the group.
I enjoy making time for public speaking, advocacy and contribution to the debate around Data Privacy in the context of Blockchain, Ethics and Digital Transformation via the press, international events and media.
