Plural, a London, UK-based early-stage platform to back companies on a mission to change the world through technology, appointed Eliza Dabney as Chief Marketing Officer.
In her new role, Dabney will lead all of Plural’s marketing and communications efforts, including supporting and advising its growing portfolio of founders.
Dabney has two decades of experience advising and building global profiles for high-growth startups and leading venture capital firms on both sides of the Atlantic. In 2012, she co-founded Sepia Communications with Josephine Salm to provide high-impact, strategic communications for companies radically transforming their industries on a global scale. After seven years of successive growth and building global leadership profiles for some of the most celebrated companies, such as BlaBlaCar, Deliveroo and Roblox, Sepia was acquired by US-based firm Outcast (owned by Next15 Group PLC) in 2019 to expand Outcast’s footprint into a new market. Sepia rebranded to Outcast in 2020, where Dabney continued to co-lead the London business as Managing Director.
