Vice President, Head of B2B Marketing, Verizon Media
As Vice President of B2B Marketing at Verizon Media, Jen Whelan loves telling tech stories without the geek-speak. Jen joined Verizon Media in 2020 and brings 22+ years of marketing experience to her role, having led successful growth initiatives in advertising technology at Criteo and Innovid and across global innovation brands such as Qualcomm, Microsoft and Intel. In addition to B2B marketing, Jen has driven key B2C strategic initiatives and integrated marketing campaigns for Office 365, Windows Phone and T-Mobile flagship devices.
Jen is passionate about advocating for women in tech and serves as senior advisor for women-owned, boutique talent and recruiting practice, Peony. She loves talking about diversity in the workplace, leadership and the importance of negotiation, how to build a supportive network and why compassion is the skill everyone needs to ensure a successful life and career. Jen was featured as a keynote speaker in the Women of Wisdom series with Verbal Courage and Build By GIrls networking event .
Jen hails from Alaska and earned her degree in finance and marketing from the University of Oregon (go Ducks!). She is a member of the NYC CMO B2B Breakfast Club and serves as a Senior Mentor in the She Runs program. Above all else, Jen is the proud mother of one son, Lee. When Jen isn’t busy driving new initiatives at Verizon Media, she can be found perfecting her downward-facing dog, hitting the slopes, exploring new locales, and shamelessly scraping out the last few bites of Talenti Peanut Butter Fudge gelato.
