Mr Pemberton has considerable experience in leading tech companies to strong levels of international growth and will oversee Impero’s UK Nottingham office and its US-based office, located in Portland, Oregon.

Between the years of 2007 and 2013, Pemberton was CEO of the Softel Group, which sold software and hardware solutions into the global television and ‘second screen’ media markets. Pemberton realised huge success in this role, doubling profits each year from 2010 to 2013. Prior to joining Softel as CEO, Pemberton also founded a metadata company in California, which grew to open offices in both New York and Denver; following this expansion, he sold the company in 2006. Now on-board at Impero, Pemberton will utilise his extensive experience to drive Impero’s international growth strategy.

Speaking on his appointment, Pemberton said:
I am thrilled to be joining Impero’s impressive team at such an exciting time of growth for the company. Its innovative e-safety platform is at the frontline of online safety initiatives for schools worldwide, and I look forward to introducing Impero, and its range of remote monitoring and management solutions, to educators internationally.
