Due to recent changes in the way Linkedin displays hiring information we have have changed the format of our weekly new hires posts. Companies who want their new hires included in the post must contact us directly at mail (at) insidemobileapps (dot) com.

Hiring in the mobile apps sector was down this week with only five new hires overall between five companies.

There were a number of high profile hires to report this week. Warren C. Jenson was elected Director by Tapjoy’s board of directors. Jenson is currently CFO and Executive Vice President at Acxiom Corporation. Jenson was also CFO of Electronic Arts, Amazon.com and NBC in the past. CocoaChina also announced a new VP Engineering, expanding the company’s presence in the U.S. Finally, Eric Feng, previously of Hulu and Airtime, joined Flipboard as its CTO.
