EnsembleIQ appoints Jennifer Litterick as CEO
EnsembleIQ’s board of directors has appointed Jennifer Litterick as CEO. Litterick previously served as the Chicago-based company’s chief commercial officer and president of its North American retail vertical division. Her appointment is effective immediately and follows the departure of David Shanker, who held the role of CEO since February 2018. EnsembleIQ is the parent company of Store Brands and operates an integrated network of media brands across all retail sectors.
“We are fortunate to have someone of Jennifer Litterick’s caliber and experience step up to lead EnsembleIQ,” said EnsembleIQ Board Member Mike Foster. “We are at a pivotal moment, and during this time of transformation there is no better person to steer EnsembleIQ into renewed growth. Jennifer is a proven leader with extensive media experience, vision, industry knowledge and the ability to bring people together. She is a customer-focused communicator with natural leadership capabilities and a track record of strong execution. Furthermore, she has been on the executive leadership team for the past two years and has successfully grown businesses in both Canada and the U.S.”
Litterick joined Rogers Media, one of EnsembleIQ’s formative acquisitions, in 2009 as publisher of Canadian Grocer Magazine, later becoming group publisher for Rogers Media's marketing and retail titles in 2013. She left the company to serve as a partner at strategic consulting firm Pinpoint Solutions Group, then returned to the frontlines of B2B media in 2017 with the newly established EnsembleIQ, where she became president of Canadian operations and then president of North American retail vertical.
Litterick said she is honored and excited to be at the helm of EnsembleIQ.
“We have the top brands in our sectors across North America, and we will continue to deliver on the promise of providing compelling, intelligent and engaging content and insights to help drive growth for the industries we serve,” she added. “I have had the privilege of working closely with the EnsembleIQ team of talented people and look forward to continuing our journey together as we execute our strategy and take advantage of the market opportunities ahead.”
