Catena Media has named Jasleen Kals as Vice President of Product.

Expanding its executive team, the appointment is part of the company’s transition to a product-first operating model.

Kals brings experience in building, iterating and executing product-led growth strategies at the senior level to Catena Media.

She joins from Fox Entertainment, where she was Executive Director of Digital Product and Strategy at the news and entertainment brand TMZ.

“Jasleen has impressive experience in creating and building excellent products and we are delighted she is joining us,” commented Pierre Cadena, Interim CEO of Catena Media.

“Her knowledge, leadership and drive will be central as we embed our new product-focused operating model across the organisation.

“The model will prioritise the development of our best-performing products and create superior user experiences as we position the business to deliver sustainable long-term growth. Jasleen will lead the evolution and growth of Catena Media’s portfolio of outstanding assets and brands to enable us to unlock their full potential.”

Back in March, Catena Media announced that Manuel Stan will be the company’s permanent CEO from July 1, replacing Michael Daly who stepped down from the position in February. 

Earlier this month, Catena Media reported a decrease in revenue during the first quarter of 2024, with North America revenue and new depositing customers falling considerably. Cadenas stated that organisational and leadership changes will help the company achieve organic growth in the second half of the year.
