OkCupid’s Global PR Lead Michael Kaye to Join LinkedIn

Michael Kaye, OkCupid’s Senior Global PR Manager, has announced he is leaving the online dating company to join LinkedIn.

Kaye is set to officially start working with the professional networking platform on 30th August.

He is going to oversee the development of strategic plans and proactive PR initiatives to support broader narratives about LinkedIn’s features and products. Kaye will also be responsible for proactively identifying opportunities for product initiatives that reach job seekers, learners and everyday professionals. 

Kaye has worked at OkCupid since 2019, and has overseen PR programming across the world in North America, Europe, the Middle East and Southeast Asia.

He told PR Week: “I am transitioning from finding people’s romantic match to their professional match.

“The results speak for themselves. In 2020, we secured more press for OkCupid than any other year in the brand’s 17-year history. [I will be an] OkCupid brand ambassador for life.”

OkCupid and Match Group are currently in the process of actively recruiting to find Kaye’s replacement.
