Nick Smith, CEO of BURO.Global, said: “Key to winning the hearts and minds of BURO.Global’s target market, a demographic we call ‘generation now’ is to deliver a luxury brand platform through the lens of experience”.

‘That’s true for both publishers and retailers alike. Reena’s track record of combining creativity, technology and a customer-centric approach is perfectly aligned with our strategy for BURO 24/7 to act as luxury brands do and disrupt the luxury publishing category.”

Since launching in 2011, BURO 24/7 said it has become a leading editorial voice and innovator for advertisers in the premium lifestyle category.
