Vancouver, B.C. and Los Angeles, CA, January 12, 2016 – mimik technology inc., the leading media access, discovery and content sharing platform, today announced that Kai Buehler has been appointed Chief Marketing Officer.

“I am very excited to be joining mimik and its world class team”, said Mr. Buehler. “Instant media sharing across platforms, devices and operating systems is a huge business opportunity. Device and OS ecosystems are highly fragmented and that will continue even more with the growth of IoT devices. mimik’s patented technology platform is the only existing solution for this problem that actually works.”
“We are thrilled to add Kai to our leadership team,” says Siavash Alamouti, President and CEO of mimik. “His experience in both mobile and media industries is exactly what mimik needs to help scale our business and bring it to millions of consumers. Under Kai’s leadership, we will delight our consumer and enterprise customers with experiences that will make it easy to seamlessly share any digital content, on any device, from anywhere.”
Mr. Buehler brings to mimik a successful 15 year track record of creating, managing, and profitably selling a number of businesses in the mobile application, loyalty, and interactive TV/media space. Most recently, he founded KARMAKARMA, a loyalty and rewards platform for social impacts. Kai sold Watchpoints — the first app that rewarded viewers for watching television — to Viggle (NASDAQ: VGGL) and became Viggle’s SVP and GM. Before joining Viggle, Kai was the CEO of Mobile Messaging Solutions (mms – divested out of VeriSign), Mindmatics USA (merged with mms) and plan_b media (acquired by Mindmatics, now boku). In his role as CEO of mms, Kai developed Watchpoints and his company managed and processed over 1 billion SMS messages for major iTV shows, including American Idol, America’s Got Talent, Dancing with the Stars, Big Brother, Survivor, and Sabado Gigante.
Mr. Buehler holds a Master’s Degree in Business from the University of Paderborn, Germany and a PhD in Economics from the University of Hong Kong.
