LOS ANGELES–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#CHRO–Slickdeals, the only shopping platform powered by millions of avid shoppers, today announced that it has hired its first female member of the C-suite. Erin O’Malia Gehan will now serve as Chief Marketing Officer. The online deal site used Mogul’s executive recruiting services to hire Gehan as part of its retained search strategy.
“We are excited to welcome Erin to our team. She has the perfect mix of experience to help support our goal of helping savvy shoppers win at shopping, and we are confident that she will be a great asset to Slickdeals,” said Josh Meyers, CEO, Slickdeals.
Gehan, based in Los Angeles, CA, will oversee marketing, business development, and sales at Slickdeals.
