Tomas's background conforms to that of the model Tech Entrepreneur. In 2004, he founded his first company on his sixteenth birthday. Graduating in Business Informatics, he teamed up with three ex-Googlers to found Relay42 in 2011. He realised that many brands were facing similar marketing challenges, struggling to connect every touch-point of the customer journey; and as a result, couldn’t engage in real, human conversation using all of their data. Through evolving a tech startup into an enterprise Data Management Platform, Tomas empowers marketing teams from brands such as Air France, KLM, BMW, Footlocker and Thomas Cook to build engaging, data-led dialogue with customers – yielding clear business opportunities and increasing Return on Investment.
