Tumblr Makes 2 Big Marketing Hires

CMO Stephanie Dolgins taps pair to oversee audience development and operations.

Four months after joining Tumblr as the company’s first CMO, Stephanie Dolgins is building out her team. Like Dolgins, these two individuals have stepped into new company positions.

Don Steele (pictured, left), formerly Comedy Central’s senior vp of fan engagement and multi-platform marketing, is the new head of audience development. And Evan Minskoff (pictured, right), who had been consulting after recent stints with Ovation TV and Gilt Groupe, has joined as Tumblr’s head of marketing strategy and operations.

At press time, the Yahoo property encompasses 245.1 million blogs, 115.5 billion posts and 309 total employees. Steele and Minskoff started last week and are both based in New York. Congrats.
