DoubleDutch, the leading provider of branded mobile applications for tradeshows, conferences and events, today announced that Lucian Beebe, formerly director of product management at LinkedIn, has joined the company as vice president of product management to further develop DoubleDutch’s event applications’ social design. Beebe will tune DoubleDutch’s event app to drive more engagement through social features, help provide organizers better revenue sponsorship opportunities, and work to integrate DoubleDutch’s mobile event app analytics with marketing automation software.
"DoubleDutch’s business is built around developing the most social event applications and leveraging attendees’ social interactions to provide data-driven business insights for event organizers," said Lawrence Coburn, CEO and co-founder, DoubleDutch. "Lucian’s experience at LinkedIn – one of the largest social media companies in the world – will augment and advance DoubleDutch’s social strategy."
