OAG Strengthens Leadership Team with New Chief Product Officer

Flight information leader continues to advance technology and product innovation capabilities


OAG, the global leader in flight information, is expanding its leadership team with the addition of Vipul Nakum as Chief Product Officer. The appointment represents another significant investment by OAG in product strategy, innovation and growth.


“Consolidation, technology disruption and rapidly-changing traveler expectations have created an unprecedented period of opportunity and change in the global aviation and travel market,” said Phil Callow, CEO of OAG. “The addition of Vipul – an incredibly talented and successful technology and business leader – enables us to capitalize on this opportunity even further. His entrepreneurial approach has delivered industry-leading results across a number information businesses and underlines our focus on adding new capabilities that increase the value we provide to our customers and partners.”


Nakum has over 25 years experience creating value for B2B information, analytics and media businesses. He advised private and PE-backed companies on their product and M&A. Nakum was Head of Product Development at Reed Business Information and held senior positions at D&B, Morningstar and S&P Global.


As CPO, Nakum will oversee product strategy, vision and innovation. He is responsible for new solution development and continuous improvement to OAG’s existing product lines.


“OAG has experienced impressive growth and incredible demand across the aviation and technology markets – it’s an incredibly exciting time to join the team,” said Nakum, who will also be appointed to OAG’s board. “The opportunity to build upon the company’s existing leadership position and play a key role in OAG’s next phase of growth was very attractive.”
