Yes. They just went through 5 C levels. They're hiring again for their 'growth team.' They have lofty growth targets.

Hey Mark

So is it fair to assume that Jessica Powell doesn't work at Badoo anymore? If so that would have been a very short stint!
Any news on the nature of her departure? Why she left?
Also would be keen to know why the other c level exec's left a company than is 'supposedly' a rapidly growing company?
Badoo it appears is built on cyber crime to create mass number and then go public. This strategy, although unethical is still very clever indeed.

Mark Brooks

Correct, she left. Rumor has it, mainly because her husband had an opportunity abroad.
