Contentoo Announces Advisory Board to Support Accelerated Growth

Maurits Geuze (Rabobank), Bjorn Sprengers (MD Fintech & Group CMO PropertyGuru), Johan Andsjö (Chairman Adamo Telecom), and Jelle-Jan Bruinsma (Partner Endeit Capital) will help guide development of Contentoo.

Contentoo, Europe’s leading platform for content marketing talent, today announced the creation of a Board of Advisors. Contentoo has enjoyed accelerated growth of 156% in 2021, driven by the rise of the gig economy and global organisations finding it difficult to source the right content marketing talent. Among its clients, Contentoo counts Mollie, Swapfiets, Rituals, and Booking.com. The board will accelerate international growth by providing funding and technology advice, offering input into strategic direction, and assisting in the development of Contentoo’s product roadmap.

“Contentoo is rapidly expanding internationally on the companies’ growing need of content created by industry-specific talent, as well as market acceptance of remote work due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Combined with new technology development such as AI content creation, this expansion has created the need for an experienced and diverse advisory board,” Onno Halsema, CEO of Contentoo, said.
