Moment marketing firm brings on VP to steer marketing initiatives
Aki Technologies, the company that helps brands personalize advertising through the power of mobile moments, announced that Stephanie Klimaszewski has joined the team as VP of Marketing. In this role, Klimaszewski will grow the marketing team, support new product launches, and collaborate with brand clients to demonstrate how moment marketing ultimately wins customer attention and affinity.
During Klimaszewski’s 12 years of marketing experience, she has developed a passion for moments as a human-first solution to the demands of modern marketing. She led marketing at Kiip (now NinthDecimal) and, more recently, served as Marketing Director for JustAnswer, an expert marketplace that has connected more than 16 million people worldwide with doctors, lawyers, and more. She also worked for SpinMedia (now Billboard) and Townsquare Media where she partnered with leading brands to craft and execute digital campaigns that leveraged rich media, branded content, influencers, and events.
In her new role, Klimaszewski will be responsible for driving greater visibility and demand for Aki Technologies’ AI-powered moment marketing solution.
“Stephanie is a pioneer in moment marketing and was responsible for much of the early innovation in the space when she led the marketing team at Kiip. She’s a true thought leader that knows how to bridge creativity with technology to help brands capitalize on the opportunity around personalized advertising,” said Scott Swanson, CEO and co-founder of Aki Technologies. “We are thrilled to have her energy and expertise at Aki Technologies.”
Klimaszewski joins Aki during a time of tremendous growth. The company, which uses artificial intelligence to predict when and how a mobile consumer is most likely to respond to a marketing message, hired its first CRO last year and has plans to hire more than a dozen people this quarter. Aki now has offices in San Francisco, New York, and Chicago.
“Aki understands that moments give brands a more timely and relevant way to engage modern consumers—one that generates meaningful results without creating friction,” said Klimaszewski. “I couldn’t be more excited to work with this team of extraordinary leaders and problem solvers to help shape the next decade of effective advertising.”
Aki works with leading brands across the full spectrum of categories, including but not limited to Automotive, CPG, Entertainment, Financial Services, Pharma, QSR/Restaurants, Retail, Travel, Telecom and Alcohol & Beverages. The company has enabled innovative mobile ad campaigns. It used its AI to help Lexus deliver ads to car shoppers most responsive to its video campaign, driving a 1.55% engagement, and Aki facilitated Campari America’s first-to-market moment-targeted audio campaign which drove 6x lift in brand awareness for its popular American Honey® brand.
