Hivestack this week announced the promotion of Kira LeBlanc to Global CMO.
She joined Hivestack back in early 2021 when the company announced its global expansion. Kira will transition into her new role as CMO, effective April 1, 2022, where she will continue to lead the team responsible for the Company’s global marketing across all of its 25+ markets.
Kira will report directly to Andreas Soupliotis, Co-Founder and CEO of Hivestack, working closely with the C-Suite and will lead and scale the global marketing team that includes digital marketing, product marketing, content, communications, localization, creative as well as the regional marketing leads across EMEA, the Americas and APAC.
Andreas Soupliotis told us “I am so very thrilled to offer the well-deserved appointment of Global Chief Marketing Officer to Kira. Kira has demonstrated a unique ability to dig deep into the business while maintaining a prudent peripheral view of the industry. Since joining Hivestack last year, she has played an integral role in supporting the growth of our global operations and business development, building out our multi-language digital and social media ecosystem, growing our team and the necessary infrastructure for our marketing operations across countless new markets. Her commitment to authenticity and detail is unparalleled which has allowed for her to execute both a global and local strategy without losing the important nuances of each. I am thrilled to have her join the C-Suite at Hivestack alongside our talented global leadership team.”
Prior to Hivestack, Kira held positions at globally scaled organizations such as AOL, Oath, Verizon Media (now Yahoo) and several other digital media companies, along with her former work as a consultant supporting small and medium businesses and start-ups working on digital transformation.
Kira has been a mentor with the American Marketing Association (AMA) Mentor Exchange program for five years and is a Board member of the DPAA WeDOOH Board.
