Mobile-application developer HipLogic tapped two prominent Internet companies to strengthen its executive team, bringing aboard former MySpace head of mobile products and technology Jason Ling as vice president of product development and former Opera Software manager of worldwide marketing Stephanie Jorgl as head of marketing.
Ling will help drive product innovation at HipLogic. During his tenure at the social-networking site, he oversaw product vision and mobile strategy for next-generation mobile and new-media applications, and he drove strategic creations of MySpace mobile social-network products. He has also worked with Disney and Infospace.
Jorgl managed worldwide marketing for Opera consumer products including its Opera Browser, Opera Mini, and Wii Internet Channel, and she developed launch strategies for Opera Link and Opera Dragonfly, as well as conceptualizing and launching the company’s “Rock Opera” branding. She also served as an Internet marketing manager for Apple.
“Jason and Stephanie are great additions to the HipLogic team given their past experience helping companies succeed in mobile,” CEO Mark Anderson said.
