After doubling registered users in the last 12 months to 3 million from 1.5 million, Seeking Alpha today announced several key hires to its management team.
Katherine Divney, formerly executive director of sales for the WSJ Digital Network, joins Seeking Alpha as vice president of sales, reporting to Seeking Alpha’s U.S. President David Siegel, who joined the company in October.
Under her guidance, Katherine’s team will enhance and expand Seeking Alpha’s market-leading suite of ad products and client solutions. Prior to the WSJ Digital Network, where she led MarketWatch through a period of outstanding global sales growth, Katherine held positions at Yahoo! and Digitas.
