Today marks the three-month anniversary since Zite was acquired by CNN. And, in order to bring you the best personalized news experience for the iPad and to expand to additional platforms, it’s important for us to grow our team. Today we’re excited to announce three new, talented employees that we’ve recently hired.
Brian Humrichouser comes to us from Bing. Brian joined Zite as our Senior UX Designer and is excited to continue and enhance Zite’s tradition of clean, simple design. When Brian isn’t busy making things beautiful, he enjoys making music, bicycling (alone and with friends), zipping around on his motorcycle, and exploring all that San Francisco has to offer, from its daytime scenery to its vibrant nightlife. Brian’s favorite sections in Zite include San Francisco, Gadgets, and, naturally, Graphic Design & Typography.
Emuye Reynolds, our new Senior Front End Developer, joined the Zite team from Apple. Originally from Wisconsin and a graduate of Brown University, Emuye will be focused on improving the iPad version of Zite and helping us move to additional platforms. When not coding, Emuye enjoys basketball, playing the drums, and drinking a frosty brewski. Emuye’s favorite Zite sections are Music News & Commentary, Programming, and Business & Investing.
Martin Stoddart, Vice President of Business Development, is our latest addition to the team. Martin will focus on publisher relations and revenue generation. Martin’s impressive resume includes stints at Bing, IBM, and HP and an MBA from MIT.
Outside of work, you will most likely find Martin spending time with his wife and two beautiful children, watching movies, or shooting a game of pool. A self-proclaimed foodie currently based in Seattle, Martin looks forward to re-acquainting himself with the San Francisco food scene. Martin enjoys Zite sections such as Gadgets, Film & TV, and Science News.
