“We’re thrilled to welcome Dr. Massey, an existing investor in Thumzup, to our Advisory Board,” stated Robert Steele, Chief Executive Officer of Thumzup. “A seasoned leader with deep experience in strategic communications, reputation management, public companies and startups, Dr. Massey’s insights will help shape and inform the Company’s strategies and tactics.

“The Thumzup application is very compelling, and its mission is simple – to democratize social media advertising, inspired by how other market disruptors have upended how consumers use taxi services and where they stay on vacation, which is why I became an early investor in the company in September 2022,” said Dr. Massey. “Thumzup appears to be on a trajectory to achieve impressive multiples as it moves towards uplisting to a national exchange, and I am happy to be working with the management team and board of directors to assist in growing the business and streamlining corporate governance.”
