He is known for leveraging business intelligence and creative thinking to accelerate transformation that champions the organizational mission and goals. Furthermore, Hassemer has proved his ability to build powerful teams and align them to achieve results and business growth.

“Adding Jeff to the Validity leadership team will further champion our goals of high-level growth in the year ahead,” said Mark Briggs, CEO of Validity. “We are confident in his ability to strategically build out a sustainable plan for expansion. I can’t wait to see the new energy Jeff brings to the team, especially during this time, when marketing technology is evolving and the need to help our customers adapt is more urgent than ever.”

Hassemer will lead the marketing team, ensuring it is driving results and growth for the business. In the coming months, he will focus on building out a comprehensive strategy to align marketing with sales, product, and other areas of the organization.

Validity is a market leader and I’m passionate about products that have real impact on our clients’ business.”

This hire comes at the heels of recent momentum for the company despite a turbulent economy.
