Jack Cox joins as CTO off the back of recent Palantir Partnership and appointment of new President and COO, Adam Judelson
mePrism, a start-up focused on helping consumers take control over their data, announced the appointment of tech industry veteran, Jack Cox to join its fast-growing leadership team. Cox brings decades of experience of building and managing technology platforms for consumer facing businesses across the retail, utility, hospitality and banking sectors. Cox will shepherd mePrism’s upcoming consumer app launch aimed at increasing transparency and providing consumers with the ability to own and control their digital identity.
The appointment comes on the heels of several major milestones and appointments for the consumer data start-up.

Recent research conducted on behalf of mePrism found that nearly nine in 10 (88%) consumers want to be notified when their data is bought and sold, and almost three quarters (72%) said they would be more likely to sell their data to businesses that stopped buying it indirectly.
“Consumers should absolutely be able to control and benefit from their digital footprints. Most consumers are unaware of the value and impact that footprint has on their lives,” Cox commented.
He continued: “mePrism’s mission is incredibly attractive to me – the company’s view of data ownership is unique and will help consumers without subjecting them to further exploitation. I’m enormously looking forward to bringing the wealth of experience I’ve accumulated through working with large corporations to deliver a more equitable digital experience for consumers and businesses alike.”
