As Chief Revenue Officer, Beck is responsible for the delivery of all media ad spend and impressions in email and beyond, while continuing to nurture LiveIntent’s important publisher relationships. Beck previously served as EVP, Platform after initially joining LiveIntent in 2011 as Vice President, Publisher Development.
Formerly SVP of Global Marketing, Cooper brings 20 years of digital media experience building and leading Advertising Operations, Account Management, Partnerships & Product Marketing teams. Now, as Chief Marketing Officer, he will be responsible for the overall business marketing strategy which includes advertising, branding, product marketing and public relations. In addition, Cooper is also the Co-Founder and Co-Host of Minority Report Podcast, which highlights people of color, diverse backgrounds, women & the LGBTQ+ community within media, business and technology.
Hamilton came to LiveIntent in early 2018 as SVP, People Development after 15 plus years in recruiting and HR. Throughout her tenure LiveIntent saw a 60% YoY decrease in turnover from year 1 to year 2 and has continued to decline significantly since. She also led the implementation of a performance management process which includes biannual performance and compensation reviews. This process includes an equity review by gender, level and race prior to salary/bonus/commission target recommendations being finalized. The company has shared this data with employees highlighting that there is not a gender pay gap or racial inequality due to these efforts and instead compensation is centered around the role, industry data, level, and an individual’s performance. Now as Chief People Officer, Hamilton will continue to lead LiveIntent’s Global Recruiting and Human Resources team that is passionate about culture, building and developing a world-class organization, and can transform high-level business objectives into organizational and talent strategies.
