To further accelerate and support this momentum, DISQO’s Co-Founder and CMO, Armen Petrosian, announced new additions to his team, including Anne Hunter, VP of Product Marketing; David Grabert, VP of Brand & Communications; and Karin Odell, Head of Demand Generation.
Hunter brings a wealth of experience from her roles as EVP of Strategy & Growth at Kantar; SVP of Advertising Effectiveness at comScore; and Head of Insights at AOL. Grabert was formerly Global Head of Marketing & Communications for GroupM, WPP’s world-leading media investment group; and prior held senior roles with Clear Channel Outdoor, Canoe Ventures, and Cox Communications. Odell built her career in demand generation at B2B SaaS companies in Silicon Valley and Silicon Beach (L.A.), including roles at EZ Texting, Velocify, and FirstRain. DISQO plans to grow its integrated marketing team under these new leaders.
“We founded DISQO because we saw a better way to help marketers know their consumers and create better brand experiences that drive their marketing objectives,” Petrosian said. “We’re proud of the consumer-first approach we’ve built and the recognition we’ve received. Anne, David and Karin each bring tremendous expertise in their respective fields, and each share our passion for evolving marketing with transparency and ethics that respect the consumer. They’ll help us take DISQO to new heights in 2021 and beyond.”
