Santa Monica, CA, August 18, 2014 – SHIFT (www.SHIFT.com), the leading marketing software company for social advertisers, today announced the hire of agency veteran Andrea Wolinetz as Vice President of Agency Partnerships. With nearly a decade of digital marketing experience, Wolinetz will work to grow SHIFT’s senior-level partnerships with agencies and drive further adoption of SHIFT’s Open Marketing Cloud.

“I’ve spent many years helping brands build and execute their marketing programs, in some cases not as efficiently as they could have been due to lack of technology and education,” said Andrea Wolinetz. “I’m excited to join one of the leaders in the marketing software space and begin to combine my knowledge of the agency world with SHIFT’s tech-driven culture to influence continued adoption and innovation.”
