Bynder appoints DAM industry veteran Bob Hickey as Chief Executive Officer

AMSTERDAM—March 2, 2022— Bynder, the global leader in digital asset management (DAM), is pleased to announce the appointment of Bob Hickey as Chief Executive Officer.

Hickey has an impressive track record of leading strong and engaged teams to accelerate revenues and profitability. Bynder is coming off a record year in which it surpassed 4000 customers globally with a client base that includes 20 percent of the Fortune 500, positioning the company to further accelerate its growth under Hickey’s leadership as Bynder’s CEO. Most recently, he served as the Chief Operating Officer, leading Bynder’s sales, customer success, partnerships and marketing organizations and playing a significant role in record annual recurring revenue and strong customer retention.

Said Hickey about the appointment, ”I believe Bynder is accelerating the next generation of DAM allowing brands to navigate the complexity of a changing economy. Having been a part of the Bynder leadership team since 2018, I am more confident now than ever in our mission to help deliver the best digital experience through a platform with robust capabilities across the digital ecosystem. I'm thrilled to usher in the next era of growth and innovation with a dedicated team of more than 550 Byndies who make Bynder the company it is today.

Prior to Bynder, he was General Manager of Webdam, a digital asset management platform acquired by Bynder in 2018. He was instrumental in Bynder's acquisition of Webdam and the subsequent success of the combined enterprise. Hickey has more than three decades of experience in B2B SaaS across North American and European markets, serving for more than 20 years on executive leadership teams and seven years of dedicated experience in the DAM industry.

In 2022, Bynder was named a Leader in Digital Asset Management by Forrester and earned a spot on G2’s 2022 Best Software Awards. With Hickey at the helm, Bynder is poised to drive further growth, global expansion and innovation throughout the year ahead.
