Aconex appoints Simon Yencken as Chairman

Martin Hosking resigned as a director and Chairman of Aconex on June 15, 2011, in order to focus on his role as CEO of RedBubble.

The rest of the board has thanked Martin for his contribution to Aconex over the last seven years. During this time, revenue increased by over 15 times, and Aconex has established itself as the world’s most widely-used collaboration platform for construction and engineering projects.

Simon Yencken, a non-executive director of Aconex since 2008, has taken over as Chairman. Simon has previously served as an executive and director of technology and media companies in the US, Europe and Australia. He is based in the San Francisco Bay Area.
