Share:

Vested,
an integrated communications firm focused on the future of finance,
today announced it has appointed Silicon Valley veteran, Kevin
Trowbridge, as chief technology officer.

As CTO, Trowbridge will oversee the development of Vested's proprietary
PR solutions and drive efficiency into the firm's professional services
offerings.

Trowbridge, who has significant experience as both a software developer
and a project manager, has held leading roles at numerous startups,
including The Bold Italic, An Event Apart, Creative Bug, Wheelz,
HitRecord, and Ariba.

"Throughout my career I've been fortunate enough to work with a number
of companies who have reinvented their category," said Trowbridge.
"Vested is on a similar mission in communications and I believe the PR
industry is ripe for technological disruption."

"We founded Vested to be a different type of communications firm," said
Co-Founder and CEO Dan Simon. "A core part of that difference is
technology and how it can be harnessed to transform the outdated
communications industry. Kevin brings years of incredible experience to
our efforts and I'm thrilled he chose to join us."

This hire continues Vested's strategy of identifying and filling roles
adjacent to and complementary of the firm's core set of services,
integrated communications. In 2015, it hired Ali
Wells
as chief creative officer and in 2016 retained Milton
Ezrati
as chief economist. In 2017, the firm hired Eric
Hazard
as CEO of Vested
Ventures
, its investment division.
