Jann Schwartz

I am a senior marketing and business development executive in the digital media and technology industry. I'm currently the Global Director for Market Development at LinkedIn, where I have spent the past five years in a variety of strategic sales and marketing roles. Prior to that, I worked in strategy and business development at WPP Group, The New York Times and the BBC in London and New York.

As a proven leader and relationship builder at home at the intersection of Silicon Valley and Madison Avenue, I love developing strategic marketing and sales narratives and leading cross-functional teams to execute them and drive buy-in from clients, partners and other corporate stakeholders. I am good at building relationships and uncovering shared interests and common purpose to develop a compelling and viable vision for collaboration. I then follow through by securing the support from my counterparts and inspiring a team to overcome obstacles and make that vision a reality.

Specialties: Digital media and technology business development, client relationship management, product strategy and product marketing, partnership development and corporate strategy.
