We are very excited to launch the GDI Power Book 2016, our list of the most influential and powerful dating industry players of the past twelve months.

This year, we have split the list into various categories, naming key players, as well as the startups and new entrants who are helping to drive, develop and change this exciting industry.

Speaking about the report, GDI founder Simon Corbett said: “This year’s Power Book has a different feel.

“We have split the stars of our industry into four categories that includes influencers — made up of the giants from our industry — innovators who are setting a new path for consumers, the startups making waves in the market in Europe, Asia and the US, and the ones-to-watch, which includes future stars and established players adapting their businesses.”

The GDI Power Book 2016 includes industry stalwarts like Plenty of Fish founder Markus Frind and The Match Group CEO Greg Blatt, the new crop of dating industry movers and shakers such as Tinder CEO Sean Rad & Didier Rappaport from Happn, as well as some new industry entrants shaping the future of online dating like Hinge’s Justin McLeod and Bumble’s Whitney Wolfe.
