Bailey Fisher Executive Search is pleased to have worked with Cytora on the search for a Chairman.

Cytora is an artificial intelligence start up, spun out of the University of Cambridge.  The company focuses on capturing hidden economic insights that exist in online data.

Bailey Fisher was engaged to manage the search for a Chairman, resulting in the appointment of Richard Gibson, former Executive Chairman of SwitfKey, acquired by Microsoft in 2016.

Cytora recently announced £2.4m Series A funding in a round led by Parkwalk Advisors. Cambridge Enterprise, iLexIR and a high-profile group of angels also participated in the round.

The Chairman search was managed by Paul Bailey, Founding Partner and Head of the Chairman/NED Practice at Bailey Fisher.
