The appointment will ensure a smooth transition from outgoing CTO Joe Walker, who will move into a Board Advisory role for the artificial intelligence company.

“I am very happy to have led the development of Flamingo AI’s technology platform, technology team and machine learning capabilities over the past three years.

“We have a world class product and platform. I am thrilled to be handing over to somebody as capable as Mr Coorey who will bring valuable experience to the company.”

FGO founder and CEO Catriona Wallace thanked Walker for his service, “Under Joe’s leadership of the technology team we have built a product and platform that is being used by some of the world’s leading brands and largest companies.

“We are extremely pleased that someone with Tony’s expertise is now joining the Company to support the Company’s next growth phase focused on the commercialisation of the platform,” she said.
