Popular Pays, a tech company that helps brands collaborate with influencers and creators, is excited to announce Amanda Lannert, CEO of Jellyvision, as their first Independent Board Member.
Amanda is a major player in Chicago tech; under her leadership, Jellyvision has tripled in size over the past five years and been named one of the Chicago Tribune’s Top Workplaces six years in a row. In particular, Popular Pays is eager to learn from Amanda’s own recent experience in transforming Jellyvision from a services company fueled by episodic revenue to a SaaS company with recurring revenue.
“I benefited a ton from having mentors to check in with as we evolved Jellyvision into a SaaS company,” says Amanda. “So I’m excited and grateful to be able to help out the leadership at Popular Pays however I can as they’re doing the same.”
The addition of Amanda to the board is the latest step in Popular Pays’ SaaS journey, which started with their Series B round and the addition of lead investor Beringea. As the content creator and influencer marketing industry continues to evolve, the ability for Popular Pays to offer a SaaS option to clients has become increasingly attractive due to the efficiency, transparency, and agility it can provide.
“In addition to Amanda being one of the best CEOs and mentors we’ve ever had the pleasure of getting advice from, Jellyvision is the perfect example of the kind of culture we’re trying to create at Pop Pays,” says Popular Pays CEO Corbett Drummey. “We’re very lucky to have strong guidance at the board level in our evolution to SaaS, which is key to our vision of being software for all creative collaboration and the content operating system for our brands & agencies.”
