NEW YORK, NY / ACCESSWIRE / November 15, 2016 / Snap Interactive, Inc. ("SNAP," the "Company," "we," "our" or "us") (OTCQB: STVI), a leading provider of video chat and online dating services, today announced that Judy F. Krandel has been appointed as the Company's Chief Financial Officer, effective yesterday. Ms. Krandel had been a member of the Company's board of directors until October 7, 2016.

Ms. Krandel replaces Alex Harrington, who had been serving as interim Chief Financial Officer and fulfilling the duties of principal financial officer and principal accounting officer since March 15, 2014. Mr. Harrington will continue to serve as the Chief Executive Officer of the Company.

Prior to joining Snap, Ms. Krandel served as a portfolio manager at the Juniper Investment Company, a small-cap hedge fund. She brings to SNAP more than 20 years of capital markets experience, principally as an equity analyst and portfolio manager focusing on small-cap stocks, with a strong concentration in consumer and technology. Throughout her career, she has worked closely with corporate management teams to help them develop strategic business plans, explore M&A and joint venture opportunities, raise capital and enhance their investor relations efforts.

"Over the course of her career, Judy has established a stellar reputation as a top small-cap investor. In that capacity, she's also served as a trusted advisor to many corporate management teams, helping them unlock shareholder value. As we integrate our company after our recent merger, we are pleased to add professionals of the highest caliber to our management team, who will help us build a leading social networking and dating company," said Alex Harrington, CEO of SNAP. "Judy's background as an investor and equity research analyst will be a great asset in helping the Company manage its strategic planning, capital markets approach and investor relations effort. She has also cultivated deep relationships with participants in the small and micro-cap ecosystem that we expect will help the Company achieve its strategic objectives, which include listing our common stock on a national securities exchange. We welcome Judy to our team and look forward to her contributions."

"I am excited to join SNAP's executive team and help build it into a leader in the social networking and dating industry," said Ms. Krandel. "SNAP has the elements in place to be successful: It operates in a very dynamic industry, with leading-edge technology and a management team with the vision and experience to capitalize on the opportunity. I am looking forward to helping guide SNAP on a path to continued success."

Ms. Krandel joined Juniper in 2011 as Portfolio Manager for the Juniper Public Fund, a concentrated, value-oriented fund that focuses on small-cap equities. Before that, Ms. Krandel was a Portfolio Manager at Alpine Woods where she managed portions of two long/short equity hedge funds. Prior to that, she was a Portfolio Manager from 2001 to 2009 at First New York Securities, LLC, where her experience included founding and co-managing a domestic long/short small-cap hedge fund. Ms. Krandel has been engaged in public equity research and investing since 1992, starting with Fred Alger Management, followed by positions at Delaware Management and Kern Capital Management. Ms. Krandel received her B.S. from the Wharton School of Business at the University of Pennsylvania and her M.B.A. from the University of Chicago.
