LinkedIn CMO Joins Vidyard’s Board of Directors

Vidyard, a video platform for business, today announced that Shannon Stubo has joined the company’s board of directors.

Stubo is LinkedIn’s chief marketing officer. She will help guide Vidyard’s growth as the company aids the digital transformation of organizations.

Over the last 20 years, Stubo has worked at five technology companies: Intuit, Yahoo!, eBay, OpenTable, and LinkedIn.

“Shannon and I share such similar visions and values, so I know her guidance will be especially valuable to our marketing, communications, sales and product teams as we continue to build the best customer experience possible,” says Michael Litt, CEO at Vidyard. “She’ll be key in helping us effectively scale our global team, lead the market with cutting-edge products, and ultimately help our customers succeed through the strategic use of online video.”

“Marketing and communications strategies are converging, making the art of storytelling for companies more important than ever, and video is at the center of that transformation,” said Stubo. “But this is only one of the reasons why I wanted to get involved with Vidyard. Not only are they at the forefront of this shift, but Michael stood out to me as someone who puts a premium on culture and values, which we also do at LinkedIn.”

Prior to LinkedIn, Stubo held a leadership role at OpenTable, a provider of online restaurant reservations, where she oversaw the company’s global communications strategies. As a global communications executive, Stubo has been recognized on PRWeek’s Power List, The Holmes Report’s Influence 100, and Business Insider’s THE PR 50: The Best Communications Pros In Technology for her roles in communications and marketing.
