A new chapter - DabApps Partners with Certn

Ed Hickey

We are excited to announce a new chapter in the DabApps story, as we officially tie the knot in a partnership with Certn, a leader in tech-driven identify verification and background checks.

We began working with Certn 18 months ago on a number of key projects and quickly realised that we loved working together. As we started to share our plans for the future, we realised that by working together we could move faster and offer many more opportunities for our team and customers.

Why Certn, Why now?

Growing a successful agency over 11 years is hard work and finding ways to continue to offer career progression to those that’ve made it possible, even harder. Over the years we have considered taking offers of investment or even selling to a larger company, but it never felt like the right thing to do.

Our partnership with Certn has given us a fantastic opportunity to look after every one of our team by offering increased opportunities for personal and professional development, whilst retaining the company we love.

As a result of this, some of us have moved into roles at Certn as part of a global and fast growing team of 450, whilst others in our team have moved into more senior roles helping DabApps to continue to thrive and grow.

We are delighted to announce that Catrina Baker-Bassett has taken on the role of MD, and is committed to ensuring DabApps' continued success. Tim Stimpson has stepped up to CTO and Mark Aaron to Creative Director. Chris Palk has moved to DabApps' Board Chairman, with Jamie Matthews and Ed Hickey as board members.

We're very much looking forward to seeing what the future holds!
