Hello there! I'm an internet entrepreneur, passionately building businesses that connect you to the people and brands you love.
I'm CEO and Co-founder of PinLeague.com. We create Pinterest marketing tools that help brands, publishers and retailers attract and engage fans. We offer the best free pinterest analytics tool, an audience engine to attract customers and the ability to target email campaigns using social data.
Prior to PinLeague, I co-founded BridesView, incubated some seriously cool products as head of the New Initiatives team at YouTube and Google Maps/Local Search and served as GM of AOL's Video business as we rebuilt it from #13 to #2 in US online video.
I'm an alum of the University of Pennsylvania's Jerome Fisher Program for Management & Technology, with degrees from Wharton and the School of Engineering and Applied Sciences.
That's true, although for F500 CEOs, it greatly depends on their type of business- and their own personality. In many cases, you don't want the CEO as the public face of the company or their immediate contacts/customers aren't active on social media.
I do think this trend will change with time, though it may be more of a generational change. As more CEOs rise to that level who "grew up" with social media professionally, it'll naturally happen. That said, I know as PinLeague has grown I've gotten much busier and have had a harder time personally being as active as I once was on social media. I still make a concerted effort to do so, but wish I did a better job of it.
Alternate headline: Fortune 500 CEOs too busy to share pictures of cats and tell us what they had for lunch.
