Katie Jacobs Stanton Replaces Chloe Sladden as Twitter’s VP of Global Media

8c1622151fdcb80d5ce98e7a3c3d405dThere is perhaps no position more important in the social TV space than Twitter’s head of media. Three weeks after Chloe Sladden announced her departure, ‘Variety’ has reported that Katie Jacobs Stanton, Twitter’s vice president of international market development, will step into the role.

Here are the details from Variety:

Stanton steps into a highly visible role as far as the media business is concerned, becoming the lead liaison to a range of industries including TV, sports and music. Under Sladden’s oversight, Twittermade its first crucial steps toward striking alliances with various networks, studios and other media businesses that has not only helped grow the company’s global user base but led to ad products that have helped the company with its monetization efforts.

Previously at Yahoo and Google, Stanton also worked for the White House under President Obama and the State Department under Hillary Clinton. She has been at Twitter for four years, having moved from its San Francisco headquarters last year to spearhead expansion efforts for the company overseas. The new post will mean she is returning from Paris to San Francisco.

Stanton doesn’t have the kind of media-heavy resume you might expect from someone in her new role. Prior to a stint at Yahoo Finance that ended in 2002, she did a six-year stint at Google that included roles at Google Finance and OpenSocial. She joined the Obama Administration in 2009 as director of citizen participation, which made the White House a more Web-friendly destination for voters. She segued a year later to the State Department as a special officer in its office of innovation, leaving for Twitter in 2010. Read more
