CreatorIQ, a vendor of influencer-marketing software, hired digital marketing veteran Chris Harrington as CEO.

Harrington takes over the role from interim CEO Jon Namnath, co-founder of creator analytics platform Tribe Dynamics, which CreatorIQ acquired in 2021. Namnath, formerly chief growth officer, will remain a “key member” of the executive leadership team and a member of CreatorIQ’s board of directors, the company said. Six months ago, CreatorIQ founder and board member Igor Vaks stepped down as CEO.

Harrington has three decades of experience building software-as-a-service businesses. That included his tenure as president of global sales and client services at web analytics company Omniture, which Adobe acquired in 2009 for $1.8 billion. Harrington also served as president and board member at Domo, a cloud-based data experience platform.
