The FanBridge team keeps growing. We are hard at work providing the most advanced and efficient fan management tools and have brought on music and tech industry superstars Gray Blue from Nabbr – a Gen Y online video network – as Director of Music Industry Relations and Jason Perez, formerly with Mint.com, as Head of Design to take us to the next level. Gray and Jason bring distinct leadership abilities to FanBridge and we’re excited to see what’s next.
Gray will be driving FanBridge‘s strategic alliances with key marketing, business development and business affairs executives in the music industry. He’s in charge of building out fan engagement solutions for our existing larger music clients and brand partners, and is working on new innovations to help clients get the most out of their fan lists. Before joining our team, Gray served as senior director of music marketing at Nabbr, where he represented music labels like Island/Def Jam, Atlantic, RCA, Columbia, Mute, and Matador, among others and helped them connect with the highly engaged Gen Y audience across the social media landscape.
As head of design, Jason will bridge his background in design with his passion for music. He will oversee all aspects of our design vision and direction, including conceptualizing, creating and implementing new products, and improving upon all existing offerings. Before joining FanBridge, Jason was a product designer at Zendesk, a provider of helpdesk software, where he was responsible for R&D of new product features. Before that, he was a key member of the product team for leading online personal finance site Mint.com. Jason received his Music Technology degree from the University of York, and studied extensively at the Center for New Music and Technology at the University of California at Berkeley.
