We're proud to announce the hire of our new Technical Director, Andy Bacon, who comes to us with over 10 years experience in a similar capacity from the property sector. With an honours degree from the University of Plymouth, Andy will be based in our London HQ and will play an integral role in moving Meshh’s vision forward as a data insights industry leader.
We could not be more thrilled to bring him on board!
We asked Andy a few questions to learn a little more about him, how he’s spending his quarantine and what he’s most looking forward to in his time with us...
What are you reading right now?

In an interconnected world with ever increasing amounts of geolocation data, Meshh is the right partner.
For anyone who actually likes When the Saint's Go Marching In, here's a version from Bruce Springsteen at New Orlean's Jazz and Heritage Festival!
