LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)--BIGtoken® Inc., the first privacy-focused, opt-in data marketplace where people own and monetize their data, announced today that George Stella has been appointed president of the company.
Mr. Stella, 50, was named BIGtoken’s chief revenue officer in February 2021, bringing more than 20 years of digital media experience. As a co-founder of BIGtoken, Mr. Stella was the architect of BIGtoken’s commercial product strategy and executed its go-to-market plan.
