Netflix CMO Leslie Kilgore Joins LinkedIn Board

Netflix chief marketing officer Leslie Kilgore will share her expertise with LinkedIn, but hopefully not by burning it onto a DVD and placing it in a bright-red envelope.

Kilgore was appointed to the board of directors of the professional networking site, bringing LinkedIn’s total number of board members to six. She has been with Netflix since 2000, helping to grow its subscriber base from fewer than 100,000 to more than 13 million.

LinkedIn CEO Jeff Weiner said:

Netflix is undoubtedly one of the world leaders when it comes to subscription services online. As LinkedIn continues to scale its subscription businesses, Leslie’s vast experience will be invaluable to our company. David Cohen is editor of Adweek's Social Pro Daily.
