Impero New CEO

Impero welcomes new CEO and CTO to the team

7th September 2015

This week we are delighted to announce the appointment of two new executives to the Impero board. Sam Pemberton will lead the business as Impero’s new CEO, along with Darren Forster as the company’s new CTO, to drive the company’s international expansion and future product development.

Pemberton boasts years of experience in leading tech companies to strong levels of international growth and will oversee Impero’s UK Nottingham office and its US-based office, located in Portland, Oregon. Between the years of 2007 and 2013 Pemberton was CEO of the Softel Group, which sold software and hardware solutions into the global television and ‘second screen’ media markets. Pemberton realised huge success in this role, doubling profits each year from 2010 to 2013.

Prior to joining Softel as CEO, Pemberton also founded a metadata company in California, which grew to open offices in both New York and Denver; following this expansion, he sold the company in 2006. Now on-board at Impero, Pemberton will utilize his extensive experience to drive Impero’s international growth strategy.

On his appointment, Pemberton comments: “I am thrilled to be joining Impero’s impressive team at such an exciting time of growth for the company. Its innovative e-safety platform is at the frontline of online safety initiatives for schools worldwide, and I look forward to introducing Impero, and its range of remote monitoring and management solutions, to educators internationally.

Alongside Pemberton, Impero has also appointed Darren Forster as our new CTO. Previously, Forster has held a range of director and VP positions in tech companies, affording a strong background in both technical knowledge and commercial understanding. Forster has also worked internationally, including the United States; at his previous company, sales from his product lines grew in excess of $25 million worldwide.

Impero are delighted to welcome both Sam Pemberton and Darren Forster to the Impero team and are excited by the expertise they will both bring to the business.
