Snap Interactive Appoint Alex Harrington To Board


Snap Interactive have appointed Alex Harrington, the company’s COO and CFO, to its board of directors.

Harrington was made COO of Snap Interactive in February, after a four year period as CEO of MeetMoi.

He led MeetMoi to an acquisition by IAC.

Harrington said: “I’m thrilled to join SNAP’s Board of Directors.

“With 24% year-to-date growth in active subscribers through May 30, 2014, SNAP is poised to unlock additional shareholder value. 

“SNAP’s rich store of data on millions of its users provides fertile ground for new revenue opportunities.

“I look forward to helping SNAP achieve its objectives of growth and innovation in social dating.” 

Before his time at MeetMoi, Harrington was Senior Vice President of Strategy and Operations for Zagat Survey, and Senior Director of New Business Development at Sony BMG Entertainment.

Snap’s CEO, Clifford Lerner, said: “I am very pleased to welcome Alex to the Company’s Board of Directors. His appointment is an important step in creating a robust and independent Board of Directors, which is a priority for SNAP in 2014.  

“Alex’s outstanding track record of building successful web and mobile businesses, ultimately leading to their acquisition by industry leaders such as Google and IAC will be invaluable in establishing SNAP’s leadership in the interactive dating industry.”

Last month, Snap released their updated investor presentation, which gives insight into how they achieved subscriber growth for AYI over the past year.
