Adrian Black

Founder & CEO
Adrian Black

Adrian joined his first internet startup as CTO back in 1996 enjoying the roller-coaster ride of the dot com bubble before becoming MD for new owners and securing a trade sale. After time out for an MBA, Adrian acted as a consultant to clients including eBay, Experian and DMGT before joining DMGT where he managed and completed two software acquisitions to help form an automotive division.

Whilst at DMGT, Adrian worked with the police, AutoTrader, eBay and others to create VSTAG, an industry forum to combat fraud in automotive advertising. Chairing VSTAG and championing intelligence-sharing as a means of reducing online fraud led to a pilot project, and was the seed that became Contego.
