Jaime and Brian’s joining our leadership team is a great accelerator to our strategy and I’m excited to welcome them to our group,” Pohontu said.

Gine added: “Amber is pure excitement and has been delivering phenomenal organic growth, but we believe we can do more, go faster, dream bigger. With great talent in Bucharest, Guadalajara, San Francisco, Los Angeles, and Montreal, we have a solid foundation to take the company to the next level. I’m thrilled to join my friends at Amber at this exciting point in their history and look forward to helping our company in its growth path.”
