The Original, Jenna Hannon Joins as Marketing Director, Press Release
Toronto,ON (May 8th, 2012)- Toronto based leading Technology company specializing in design and development of mobile, web, and social applications, BNOTIONS, welcomes marketing director, Jenna Hannon to the family. Canadian born, from Calgary, Hannon is University of Southern California educated (a Trojan) and has been in California for the past 6 years.
With an action sports, technology marketing and broadcasting background, it is no surprise that Hannon will be a perfect addition to BNOTIONS’ lively eccentric culture. Hannon’s diverse background with action sports broadcasting, public relations, and notably, technology marketing consulting in the Valley is just as multifaceted as BNOTIONS’ client and non-client projects. For the past several years, BNOTIONS has been making a name for themselves in the Toronto scene as they pump out new startups and in-house development projects, not just their traditional roots in mobile, web and Facebook application development for clients.
Hannon has been working the past few years in Silicon Valley between big data b2b service provider TreasureData (originally based out of Japan), and social graph consumer technology pickdeck.com (formerly known as Mirror.me). Hannon’s roots in the Valley stem from a mentorship through fellow kiteboarder and renowned venture capitalist of Sand Hill Road, Bill Tai. Hannon’s ties and experience from the Valley will bring BNOTIONS not just the obvious experienced point of view, but insights and expertise in branching out into a more vast international market.
“I am really passionate about the direction of BNOTIONS, the vision, and the team,” states Hannon. “I think a lot can be accomplished by bringing in an experienced female voice from the American marketplace,” Hannon further explains. With over 50% of their revenue U.S. based, BNOTIONS partner and founder, Alkarim Nasser, has his sights set on expanding their American business development and saw Hannon as a cataylst to driving California-based business development.
Hannon will also be working with BNOTIONS’ on in-house portfolio companies for their marketing launch- Atendy and Stocial. Hannon plans to bring her ‘go big’ mentality to BNOTIONS and their growing investment portfolio.
