“Logiq has grown tremendously and rapidly evolved in just the past two years,” says Logiq Executive Chairman and CEO Brent Suen. “With the pending spin-off of our mobile commerce business AppLogiq, our acquisitions of Push, Fixel and Rebel firmly integrated with solid customer traction underway, our entry into data-driven digital marketing is complete and we have the platform to move forward on customer acquisition as well as opportunistic M&A.”
“Logiq’s reorganization of our management talent is a positive step that sets us up for increasing our operational and financial performance to further enhance shareholder value,” Mr. Suen added.
“I greatly appreciate the commitment and execution that Tom Furukawa and Steven Hartman have contributed to the organization, and we sincerely wish them well in their next opportunities. Logiq is energized, and I believe this reorganization reinforces the nimble organization Tom and Steve helped create and continue to believe we remain well positioned with products, services and, most importantly, a motivated team to address the market opportunity before us.”
