David Montgomery – 3rd Wave Founder
Before founding the 3rd Wave, David Montgomery was a CEO & CTO, with a track record of developing startups, private and public companies.
David was the CEO at Ingenta Plc, CTO at Publishing Technology Plc, Director of Technology at Cray Systems Plc, co-founder & director of 5 fifteen Ltd & 5 fifteen Inc., managing director (software) at Inspired Thinking Group (a Tech Track 100 company) & CTO at Atex.
David founded the 3rd Wave as he realised that we are going through a change, not dissimilar to the industrial revolution, though at light speed! The barriers to “making a difference” have been totally removed, enabling just about anyone to launch a publication, develop a smartphone app or create an online platform. The key to adoption and high levels of participation (by readers, users, community), is their ability to make the publishers’ product relevant to them and those they interact with, whether that is a social media group, an online publication or a Smartphone app.
The 3rd Wave understands this and is a unique position to help media companies and publishers engender the same thinking within their organisation, through practical consulting engagements, that deliver to both the immediate requirement and longer-term goals.
