June 6, 2019 - Toronto - Rangle.io, one of the fastest growing innovation and digital transformation consultancies in North America, appointed Mark Tiainen to the role of VP, Digital Strategy. Reporting to CEO Nick Van Weerdenburg, he is responsible for growing the company’s existing strategy practice to unlock clients’ potential innovation and deliver innovative products, as well as position Rangle as a global leader in digital strategy.

Mark joins Rangle with 20+ years of experience working with Fortune 500 brands such as McDonald’s, Pepsi, Suncor and Manulife. Most recently, he was part of the leadership team that took a cannabis start-up from inception to a publicly traded company on the TSX Venture Exchange in just one year, with multiple oversubscribed funding rounds in between.

“We’re pleased to welcome Mark to the team and look forward to further building out our strategy practice together, bringing the importance of a digital-first strategy to the forefront of decision making,” said Nick Van Weerdenburg, Rangle’s Chief Executive Officer. “It’s important to look at digital technologies as key strategic pillars to create the best customer-first experience, not just as tools for delivery, and this is exactly what Mark and his team have joined us to accomplish.”

Mark is featured in the first installment of Rangle’s “Innovation Framework” eight-part series, created to encourage leadership teams to evaluate the effectiveness of their digital strategies.
