"I am honoured to welcome Bryan, a global leader in technology, media and gaming to the board.  We have worked closely together since his appointment to the advisory board and as Bidstack is at an inflection point in the business we will benefit from Bryan's impressive and proven track record at Electronic Arts as we pursue commercial opportunities."

"I am very excited to be joining the Bidstack Board of Directors.  Bidstack's technology and business model offer gaming and media companies the opportunity to reach billions of gamers around the world.  Bidstack makes it possible to reach ever increasing audiences in new and compelling ways which can enhance the games' authenticity with tailored and targeted marketing campaigns.  In the same way product placement arrangements have benefited film and television economics, in-game marketing campaigns offer the same opportunity for local and global brands to reach important consumers."
