September 06, 2013 | Russ Martin | Comments
Facebook Canada has made a series of new hires, citing growth in the Canadian market as reason for the hiring spree.
The company brought on three new employees in July, including two client partners – Jeremy Cain and Stephen Dixon – and an account manager, Jesse Epstein.
Prior to joining Facebook, Cain worked as a team lead for display advertising at Kijiji, while Dixon was previously vice-president of advertising and media sales at Wave HQ, maker of the popular Wave Accounting software. Both report to Alfredo Tan, group director, global marketing solutions.
Jesse Epstein, founder of the match making social network Loveopolis, also joined in April and will help the company increase its focus on managing accounts across Canada. On the account management side of Facebook Canada’s business, the company also recently promoted Victoria Wong to associate account manager from her previous role as an administrative assistant.
Earlier this year Ashley Olson Rutledge also moved from Facebook’s New York office to Toronto to manage campaigns in the financial services industry. As group director, global marketing solutions Rutledge will report directly to Facebook Canada president Jordan Banks.
