Knox had been Twitter's VP for the Asia-Pacific region

Twitter vice president for the Asia-Pacific region Aliza Knox announced her departure from the social network last week, and we now know where she’s headed.

Knox is joining ad- and content-funded mobile platform Unlockd as chief operating officer.

Unlockd said in a release announcing the hire that Knox will use her experience in the Asia-Pacific region to help expand the company’s business, reporting to co-founder and CEO Matt Berriman, who added:

Aliza has an amazing track record of business growth and accomplishments regionally and globally. The team and I are excited about her joining as we expand our business into other verticals like content streaming and geographies including Asia. Her wealth of experience and strong relationships will be an enormous asset as we accelerate growth toward our 2025 mission to give back $500 million in Unlockd value to our consumers.

Knox added in the release:

I have always been drawn to businesses with strong entrepreneurial spirits that are creating value for consumers in unique ways. What is especially appealing about Unlockd is its revolutionary business model where each party in the ecosystem wins, combined with visionary leadership and a strong sense of purpose. Given Unlockd’s strong growth pipeline in emerging markets like Asia-Pacific, I am confident that my skill set will add a lot of value to the business and equally, working in this role will be a rewarding experience for me.
