Former TV newsie and now big wig techie Jenni Hogan continues to climb the ladder.
Tagboard and FTVLive sponsor announced two internal moves for the executive team.
Co-founder Jenni Hogan has been promoted to Chief Operating Officer effective immediately, adding this role to the executive team. Jenni served as Chief Strategy Officer for the last year, and prior to that was the company’s Chief Media Officer. As Chief Operating Officer, Jenni will help accelerate Tagboard’s transition into a full-fledged growth company along with scaling the Tagboard business globally.
“I’m thrilled to appoint Jenni to this important role as we prepare for our next stage of growth,” said Tagboard’s CEO Josh Decker. “No one understands the transformation occurring in the media industry better than Jenni, and it is critical that our COO has a strong digital media foundation as we expedite our growth plan to impact communities worldwide.”
Over the last two and a half years, Jenni helped grow Tagboard’s footprint globally, building a team that has formed partnerships with the top thought leaders in media and sports, along with international brands and agencies. She led the source network relationships and most recently helped Tagboard become the first official display partner with Snapchat. Her strong leadership and strategic acumen have directly contributed to some of the most significant milestones in the company’s history.
Hogan previously worked at COX Communications where she led the industry in digital and social audience interaction as the most followed on-air journalist in America. She also ran Jenni Hogan Media, where she created and led digital and social campaigns for companies like GMC, EY and Target.
Tagboard also promoted Jordan Larrigan from VP of Product and Engineering to Chief Technology Officer. Jordan will continue to build the product and engineering teams and evolve the technology platform that is the engine that drives the Tagboard business.
“Jordan has a unique way to make a very complicated infrastructure become an easy platform for our users to experience,” Josh said. “He has a deep understanding of digital communities and how to lead the industry in that space. As we push into products that are moving to where the puck is going, there is no one better than Jordan to lead the charge.”
Jordan has been with the company since 2012 and helped grow the product team during this time. He has been a core catalyst for building the infrastructure that now sees the Tagboard product being used in more than 160 countries worldwide. Jordan previously worked at Myspace where he played an integral role in building the social media network’s content delivery network from the ground up.
