Kiip’s New Hires Focus on Data, Growth

Kiip is excited to introduce two new hires to its growing team – Chris Gore as Data Scientist and Stephanie Klimaszewski as Senior Director of Sales Development & Marketing!

Together, these two key hires will drive immense growth for Kiip’s data and brand initiatives.

Chris Gore

Chris is Kiip’s Principal Data Scientist. His initial projects include building a data warehouse for analytics, creating statistical models for ad response prediction and working to make the ad market more efficient. This will lead to increased reward relevancy, ensuring users get the rewards they’re most inclined to redeem.

Before joining Kiip, Chris found success as the first-ever data scientist for Retention Science in Santa Monica, CA. There, Chris built the company’s predictive models from the ground up, processing data for millions of customers. He also grew Retention’s engineering team through two rounds of funding. He holds a BS and MS in computer science with an academic background in machine learning and neural networks.

Chris’ extensive research background and experience in software engineering make him a fantastic fit for Kiip’s ongoing data projects.

Stephanie Klimaszewski

Stephanie is the Senior Director of Sales Development and Marketing. She serves as the liaison between sales and marketing, where she’ll work directly with brands to create partnership opportunities and front-facing collateral that will grow revenue and improve brand relations.

Stephanie comes from Townsquare Media and SpinMedia. At SpinMedia, she served as the creative backbone to sales and pioneered the company’s Integrated Marketing initiatives in LA, New York and Chicago. In Chicago, her work contributed to the region’s $9MM in revenue growth.

Together, Chris and Stephanie serve to streamline Kiip’s internal data management and external communications to improve brand campaigns.
