SAN FRANCISCO, March 16, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Purpose activation platform in/PACT has announced that Advisory Board member and former Managing Director of LinkedIn Europe, Kevin Eyres, has joined the leadership team as CEO. John McNeel, in/PACT Now's Co Founder and CEO, has assumed the role of Chief Brand Officer, working closely with Eyres in expanding the company's footprint across the industry.
While at LinkedIn, Eyres led the hyper growth strategy of the European division, taking them from first employee outside of the US to IPO in under four years, as well as expanding their commercial operations across six different countries. In addition to LinkedIn, Kevin brings with him a wealth of senior leadership experience in technology companies such as Side Step (acquired by Kayak), AltaVista, Shopping.com and Compaq Computers.
