Launched in 2017, Chappy’s mission is to provide gay men with a safer, welcoming and high-quality platform for connecting and establishing genuine gay relationships. Chappy, today announced that two of its three original co-founders, Ollie Locke and Jack Rogers, have decided to leave the company. Its Board of Directors has collectively appointed Sam Dumas to succeed the duo as the Global Head of Brand. Locke and Rogers will step down on 29th August 2018 after 18 months with the company. Max Cheremkhin will remain as an active co-founder working with Dumas to ensure a smooth and seamless transition.
“Leading Chappy has truly been an honour, for both of us. We’re incredibly proud of all that the Chappy team have achieved over the past 18 months to advance the interests of the community while inspiring other technology to be a force for good. Guided by our philosophy of kindness and respect, we launched in new global markets, reinspired trust in dating, whilst also lifting up all the communities we serve. We’ve made a more meaningful impact in people’s lives than we ever dreamed possible. We truly believe Max and Sam will continue to take the company from strength to strength and are excited to follow and support Chappy’s journey from the sidelines. The company will always hold a special place in our hearts, but the time has come for us both to refocus our energy on exciting new projects and we wish everyone involved all the very best for the future.”- Ollie Locke, Jack Rogers, Co-founders, Chappy.
