Audio Out-of-Home leader expands executive team to continue fueling significant growth
Vibenomics, a location-based Audio Out-of-Home™ (AOOH) advertising and audio experience company, has promoted Jenny Quinnette from SVP of Finance to Chief Financial Officer. Quinnette will leverage her extensive market knowledge and experience in navigating companies through various stages of development and growth to transform Vibenomics’ finance, accounting, business intelligence and business operations.
Quinnette brings more than 15 years of experience to this role. Prior to her promotion, she served as SVP of Finance where she led and developed Vibenomics’s financial planning and budget management. Recognizing that expected growth warranted filling this critical financial role on the Vibenomics executive team, adding the CFO role allows Quinnette to assume greater responsibility for internal financial controls and external fund-raising.
“As Vibenomics undergoes rapid growth, we knew it was time to appoint a CFO,” said Brent Oakley, CEO of Vibenomics. “Jenny’s deep experience overseeing financial operations within the accounting and technology sectors, in addition to her leading operational changes, will generate an immediate impact. Her forward-thinking leadership will enable us to grow our leadership position in AOOH.”
In 2009, Quinnette joined 40|86 Advisors to lead their accounting and reporting team. After joining Allegient, LLC as its director of finance and accounting in 2014, she led the finance team through the company’s acquisition by DMI and oversaw its integration. She assumed the role of CFO at Onebridge, guiding the company through a debt restructuring, implementing a new HRIS/payroll system, and onboarding a new ERP/CRM platform for time and resource management. Moving to Viral Launch in 2018, Quinnette built a finance team and helped to raise $7.3M equity.
“Taking the helm as Vibenomics’s first CFO, I’m excited for the opportunity to continue driving positive change and enhancing the company’s financial prowess,” said Quinnette. “I look forward to formulating and validating strategies to fuel our continued growth.”
Vibenomics is poised for significant growth in 2022. The company recently signed a multi-year deal with Hy-Vee, a multistate grocery chain planning to open a new Indianapolis location in 2023. The company’s 400+ stores will begin broadcasting Vibenomics audio on February 15.
