Every two weeks, Search Influence’s Kelly Benish — who knows practically everyone in hyperlocal — covers some of the latest job changes taking place in this dynamic industry. (Plus, scroll down for jobs on offer now.)
Steven Wolfe Pereira – Datalogix
Datalogix, a marketing analytics firm which whose research links offline sales to advertising on social-media sites Facebook and Twitter, has named former Starcom MediaVest Group executive Steven Wolfe Pereira as its new chief marketing officer. Wolfe Pereira was exec VP of MediaVest and managing director of its multicultural agency MediaVest Multicultural, a role he was in since 2010. He also led MediaVest efforts for Walmart and helped to initiate the retailer’s focus on the Hispanic market. As CMO of Datalogix, he’ll be responsible for brand advertising, corporate communications and other marketing initiatives as well as leading its global agency partnerships.
Natasha Pecor – Yelp
Ratings and review site Yelp picked up Natasha Pecor as their platform business development manager. The reviews platform has been under fire recently for their “pay for play” model and other tactics. Pecor joins Yelp from data strategy provider BlueKai where she was their partner manager.
Barry McCarthy – Clinkle
Controversial mobile payments company Clinkle is making headlines again — but this time it’s by bringing on key talent instead of having as many as 30 employees throw their deuces up. The company recently added Netflix Qwikster (a big mistake for Netflix) head Andy Rendich as VP of operations and HR hotshot Allison Hopkins as VP of Talent who was former VP of HR at Netflix. (who we can only hope will give the company a lesson in retaining talent) One thing we do know about the mysterious Clinkle is that they are laser-focused on hiring former Netflix staffers.
