San Carlos, CA (PRWEB) May 14, 2015
Inspirational Marketing platform ReadyPulse announced today the hiring of two executives Ron Selvey, VP Marketing and Evan Howe, VP Sales. Selvey assumes the role of VP of Marketing, tasked with continuing to position ReadyPulse as an innovation and thought leader in the industry and assist in targeting new verticals and geographies. As VP of Global Sales, Howe has been tapped to oversee direct sales, account management, and partner sales teams responsible for maintaining ReadyPulse 100+ customer base and growth within target verticals and new geographies.
"The demand for Inspirational Marketing from Aspirational Brands is larger than ever before,” noted ReadyPulse CEO Dennis O’Malley from his offices in San Carlos the other day. “This is due in no small part to the backlash against traditional Influencer Marketing, an ineffective approach that "rents" social reach rather than garnering inspiring and authentic stories from these same social channels.” O’Malley went on to state that, in order to tackle demand generated from the company’s 250 percent year-over-year growth ReadyPulse needed to bring on executives with industry experience to lead the company’s go-to market activities.
“I'm thrilled to be joining Dennis and the team at ReadyPulse,” said Selvey, who brings more than 15 years of leadership experience in marketing. “ReadyPulse is well poised for its next years of growth in helping the world's top consumer brands harness the true power of today and tomorrow’s social world,” he added.Before joining ReadyPulse, Selvey was Vice President of Marketing at WebDAM, a division of Shutterstock.
VP of Sales Evan Howe brings 10 years of experience ramping revenue growth and market adoption for early stage technology companies with a focus on e-commerce, social analytics, and sales engagement. Prior to ReadyPulse, Howe ran software and agency services sales at Fluid, an commerce-focused digital solutions provider targeting the IR500 "I couldn't be more excited to join ReadyPulse. Dennis and team have uncovered a truly disruptive approach to Influencer Marketing, and have built an outstanding suite of solutions to drive brand success in today's shifting digital landscape. Results are phenomenal across the entire customer base. I look forward to leveraging my experiences; further accelerating an already impressive growth trajectory."
“With Ron's experience from Shutterstock and Evan's at Fluid, I am confident both will be contributing great value to ReadyPulse product and customers," O’Malley said.
