Taptu appoints ex-Yahoo mobile exec as COO to head up new US office

Rumor: Droid X launching on July 19th?

Hoping to conquer America, touch-friendly mobile search engine Taptu is opening a US office in Denver, Colorado.

But, perhaps more interesting, it’s to be headed up by former Yahoo Mobile European MD, Mitch Lazar, who joined the Taptu Board as recently as March.

Not long in that role, his new title is President and Chief Operating Officer, which will see him “heading home” after 11 years in London.

Lazar will be charged with driving “business development, marketing and product management locally”, a move prompted by Taptu’s “rapidly growing American audience”, says the company.

Taptu CEO Steve Ives says that having a “dedicated team on the ground” will help the company consolidate their position and “take it to a new level.”

Taptu’s US base will be located in the Denver Techn Center (DTC) – a hub of technology companies in Colarado – while its R&D will remain at the company’s UK headquarters in Cambridge.

Taptu is privately funded with investment from Sofinnova and DFJ Esprit.
