Data connectivity platform LiveRamp has appointed David Pann as chief product officer (CPO).
Pann will oversee product design, innovation, and long-term strategy for LiveRamp’s portfolio of products. He will also play a leading role in LiveRamp’s global expansion and exploration of new verticals beyond advertising and marketing, the company says.
Previously, Pann served as the vice president responsible for Microsoft’s Global Search Advertising Business. Prior to that, he was vice president and general manager of the North American Search Advertising Marketplace at Yahoo!.
In another development, LiveRamp elevated its chief technology officer Mohsin Hussain, who will now report directly to CEO Scott Howe.
In addition to his work at LiveRamp, Hussain has held engineering leadership roles at Netscape, AOL, Siebel, and SunPower.
“Both David and Mohsin possess tremendous technical acumen,” Howe states. “But perhaps even more importantly, they also have an unparalleled reputation for nurturing top-performing teams, mentoring talent, and developing leaders.”
