The Next Step In Our Journey…


TickSmith started in 2012 with a small but driven team. The determined founders, Marc-Andre Hétu, Tony Bussières, David Côté, and Francis Wenzel, started on a mission to democratize data. They undertook this ambitious adventure and have watched every TickSmither contribute their knowledge, curiosity, and passion to the vision!

Since TickSmith closed the Series A funding round back in December 2021, it has brought many positive changes, including new team members, GTM, and brand, amongst other things. Now, with a team five times the size of the original and with the same aspirations of helping companies realize the full potential of their data, TickSmith has never been better positioned to make a difference.

As we continue to accelerate forward in our journey we are excited to announce Ian Gilbert as CEO of TickSmith.

Ian, with his decades of experience, is the right leader to keep TickSmith out front in the emerging market. He has over 20 years of leadership experience driving customer growth for companies globally. In his most recent role at TickSmith as Chief Revenue Officer, Gilbert has propelled the go-to-market strategy forward significantly with his deep understanding of the enterprise and extensive leadership.

Ian succeeds Francis Wenzel, who will become the Head of Strategy & Corporate Development at TickSmith. Wenzel says, “Ian made a lasting impression on the executive and board members with his vision to accelerate this already rapidly growing business. He has made a tremendous impact at TickSmith to date, and we have no doubt that he will continue this momentum as our new CEO.”
