Mention Me has appointed Stuart Whyte as its new Chief Revenue Officer.

These newly created roles will be central to shaping our business model and direction of the business; supported by our new products designed to tangibly enhance the customer journey further, quickly creating high numbers of advocates and driving loyalty and lifetime value.”
