As we all continue to reflect on everything we’re grateful for this holiday season, Partnerize wants to position the spotlight on a trio of our team members who were recognized for their outstanding work and achievements in security, partnerships, and online compliance.
Recently, Partnerize’s VP of Information and Security & Compliance, Jennifer Kilmartin, was nominated and made finalist for a Women in Tech Excellence Awards for Security Leader of the Year while Jessica Henig, Senior Director of Partnerships, was named to both the Performance Marketing Association Council (PMA) as well as being named one of PerformanceIN’s Top 50 which recognizes exceptional individuals and rising stars who are pushing the conventional boundaries to improve the partner and performance marketing channel. On the compliance and monitoring side of our business, BrandVerity General Manager, Van Chappell, was also recently named to the PMA council.
As a certified Information Security Manager (CISM), Jennifer’s career in security management spans 16 years across different industries including finance, legal, and law enforcement. As VP of Information Security and Compliance at Partnerize, Jennifer sees security as her vocation rather than just a job. Additionally, she volunteers outside of her role at Partnerize as president of the ISACA Northern England Board and has held a board role for over 8 years. The ISACA chapter has over 1000 members and her role includes facilitating board meetings, events for members, as well as representing the board both nationally and globally. Jen has also presented at regional events on cyber security as well as hosted a large number of events for the chapter members. During the Covid pandemic, she facilitated online events with invites to over 1000 members, sourced speakers and ran two-hour panel discussions on the effect of the pandemic on Security teams as well as the effect on women in tech positions. Finally, Jennifer has had direct involvement with SheLeadsTech, an initiative run by ISACA International focused on empowering women leaders in Technology.
In her role, Jessica leads the global Partnerships team whose focus is on growth and acquisition of publisher partners using Partnerize and connecting these partners with the many respective brands she believes will bring about the most profitable growth for the brand and the business alike across the Partnerize platform. Jessica will be leading the PMA’s Publisher Recruitment and Education Council.
Van was the first sales executive in the early days of BrandVerity – and he went on to become the founder of 5IQ, and also founded Progressive Shopper before deciding to return to BrandVerity and currently serves as General Manager. Van will be leading the Compliance Council for the Performance Marketing Association
Once again, Partnerize sends a very special congratulations to Jennifer, Jessica, and Van on all their hard work and achievements!
