Written by Vanessa February 28, 2013

Spokeo is proud to announce that Kristen Morquecho, formerly director of corporate communications at Yahoo!, has joined Spokeo as vice president of communications. Kristen will oversee the corporate communications strategy for the people search provider including the execution of all external and internal communications, as well as media and community relations activities for the various Spokeo products and divisions.

We’re all very excited to have Kristen join our team. Our CEO Ray Chen specifically notes, “With a wealth of experience and relationships in the technology industry, Kristen truly understands our business and how to tell the story around Spokeo’s innovations in the people search category.”

Kristen was most recently responsible for the communications strategy behind Yahoo!’s media network including new video programming, strategic brand partnerships, content partners as well as Yahoo!’s ad platform and US product launches. During her seven-year tenure there, she also led communications efforts for Yahoo! Search.  Prior to her post at Yahoo!, she developed and executed all public relations campaigns and programs surrounding product launches as head of communications for Citysearch and Evite. She also spent six years at the Los Angeles-based public relations agency, MPRM.

Kristen graduated with a degree in communication studies from Loyola Marymount University and is a member of the Public Relations Society of America. The local LA native enjoys spending time with her husband and toddler son in addition to tracking her steps on her new Fitbit.

She started at Spokeo on Monday, February 25, 2013. Welcome Kristen!
