Kargo appoints new VP of Strategic Partnerships, East
Black will be managing new and continued business with some of the industry’s leading agencies and trading desks. Her focus is on the East Coast region. She will be based in the New York headquarters and report directly to Senior Vice President of Sales, East, Kevin Canty.
Black joins Kargo, having held various positions at Hearst, Bauer, Meredith and Valassis. Her extensive publishing and ad business experience will help her foster business strategies and develop new global partnerships for Kargo.
More recently, she acted as Regional Vice President for the East Coast at Federated Media and was responsible for leading new business efforts for the content marketing company.
Kevin Canty says:
“As a seasoned sales leader, Lizzie has built deep relationships across the business at both the agency and client levels. We’re thrilled to have one of the industry’s top talents join Kargo to help expand our business, protect existing customer relationships and generate new long-lasting partnerships with the top publishers and brands.”
Kargo creates rich media campaigns for over 200 brands (including Unilever, Procter & Gamble, Verizon and L’Oréal), but has also partnered with a network of over 300 top publishers such as Hearst, The New York Times and CBS Interactive. The company reaches an audience that rivals Google and Facebook in scale.
Black will be joining the company after a solid year of business for Kargo, exceeding $100m in revenue and expanding internationally as well as launching its first mobile ad research initiative. She says:
“Within the past year, Kargo has transformed the mobile landscape for brands, publishers and consumers by developing engaging ads that reach eight out of ten smartphone users in the US. I’m looking forward to being a part of Kargo’s continued growth and success.”
