On January 11, 2023, Vidyard, the leading video solutions provider for marketing and sales professionals, has appointed Jonathan Lister as Chief Operating Officer (COO) to lead its worldwide go-to-market teams. His guidance will be necessary as Vidyard continues to develop the top video solution for sales and adheres to its goal of assisting go-to-market professionals in engaging and delighting their clients in a digital-first business environment.
Jonathan spent over a decade at LinkedIn, most recently as VP of Global Sales Solutions, where he oversaw their Sales Solutions team. The team's objective was to inspire sales professionals to put their customers first and to develop trustworthy and valued buyer-seller relationships. Jonathan formerly served as the Country Manager for Google Canada and held numerous leadership roles at AOL.
