Affinio Hires Jason Ford as VP of Business Development
Jason Ford steps in to lead new business development at Affinio from Brand Networks
We are excited to announce our latest addition to our executive team and welcome Jason Ford to Affinio as our VP of Business Development.
“Jason’s rich experience and network in both social and adtech makes him a great addition to our leadership team,” says Tim Burke, Co-Founder, and CEO of Affinio. “He will be developing and managing our strategic data partners as we expand our technology deeper into the marketing stack. ”
Jason has spent the past fifteen years working in technology in San Francisco, CA. Most recently, Jason worked in paid social at Brand Networks, a leading social technology platform, where he helped guide West Coast business development. Before his work with Brand Networks, Jason helped build out TARGUSinfo’s sales operations until the company was acquired by Neustar in October of 2011. He has also held strategic roles in early & mid-stage startups including LQ Digital, Matchpoint (acquired by Company.com) and HomeGain (acquired by Classified Ventures).
On why he is excited to join the Affinio team, Jason explains, “I am excited to be a part of the Affinio team for numerous reasons, but the headlines for me are the people and the product. Everyone I have met at Affinio has been very thoughtful about their role and the future of the company. The product speaks for itself and represents a shift in media strategizing, planning, and putting media execution forward into the hands of a fully educated marketer. I look forward to helping grow Affinio’s partnership footprint from San Francisco and furthering the company’s thoughtfulness.”
Outside of work, Jason enjoys spending time with his wife and eight-month-old son in their home in San Anselmo, CA. On the weekends you can find him in the great outdoors: surfing, skiing, backpacking, camping or hiking as a family and sharing the outdoors with his son.
