London, UK: Ripjar, a leading data intelligence company, is pleased to announce that Jeremy Annis will become Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Ripjar, effective immediately. The appointment comes as Ripjar enters the next phase of its growth, focused on expanding operational scale and the global delivery of its ground-breaking proprietary data intelligence platform, Labyrinth.
Jeremy, formerly Chief Technology Officer (CTO), co-founded Ripjar in 2012 following a 13-year career at the UK’s Government Communications Headquarters (GCHQ). He replaces fellow co-founder Tom Griffin, who will continue to play a critical role in Ripjar’s growth strategy, helping to drive overseas expansion and international partnerships.
Jeremy will build on the work Tom and the team have delivered to date to build unique technology that democratises sophisticated data analytics, making it easier, quicker and cheaper for global companies and government agencies to identify risks in real time at scale, over any data source.

The business has continually delivered 100% year-on-year growth and has grown headcount to over 60 employees across three locations.
Jeremy Annis, CEO, commented: “I am delighted to take on the role of CEO at such an exciting time for Ripjar. Tom’s leadership gives us the perfect platform to accelerate growth over the course of 2019. We will move at pace to deploy our state-of-the-art technology for ever more clients, helping organisations to stay resilient in the face of the myriad risks that threaten their growth, prosperity and value.”
Tom Griffin said: “It has been a privilege to lead Ripjar for the last six years. Now is the right time for a new CEO to aggressively pursue the next stage of our growth. I’m greatly looking forward to working with Jeremy to take Ripjar to the next level.”
