Neustar, Inc., a global information services and technology company and leader in identity resolution, today announced that Wes Nichols has been appointed as an independent, non-executive director to the Companys Board of Directors. Mr. Nichols is a technology entrepreneur, an active technology investor and served as Neustars Senior Vice President of Strategy from 2015 to 2016 following Neustars acquisition of MarketShare, where he was co-founder and CEO.

We are happy to have Wes back as part of Neustar, said Stewart Bloom, Board Chairman, and Golden Gate Capital Operating Executive. He continues to be a thought leader in the world of data and analytics, specifically around the technology behind data-driven decision-making for executives. As we continue to focus on helping companies determine the best allocation of resources, Wes experience, connections and insights will help Neustar position itself as an essential partner.

The acquisition of MarketShare was the bridge between Neustars unique ability to access and repurpose data and our ability to then use that data for marketing resource allocation, planning and attribution, said Charlie Gottdiener, Neustar President & CEO. It was the precursor to the solutions we sell today that drive data-driven marketing. Wes understands this world, he understands our proprietary OneID platform, and he understands what enterprises need to be competitive. Together, this brings a great asset to Neustar as we work to execute on our mission of enabling trusted connections between companies and people at the moments that matter most.

“Its exciting to be back at Neustar as a member of its Board of Directors,” said Mr. Nichols. “When Golden Gate Capital and Charlie asked me to join the board, I agreed for the same reasons we chose to sell MarketShare to Neustar. The company was, and continues to be, the only truly neutral source of analytics and data in the market. As the world relies more heavily on data to drive decision-making, so too will it require companies who are dedicated to neutrality, privacy, transparency, and trust. Neustar is that company. I wanted to be a part of that in 2016, and I am thrilled to be part of it again in 2020 as a board member.
