Listen Technologies has promoted Kim Franklin to vice president of global marketing where she will continue to lead corporate and digital marketing on top of global marketing responsibilities. Franklin joined the company in 2014, playing an important role in developing and executing marketing strategies and global campaigns during her time.
“We are thrilled to promote Kim to vice president of global marketing and have her join the Listen Technologies Executive Team as we embark on this next stage of growth for our organization,” said Maile Keone, president and CEO of Listen Technologies. “Kim will bring greater depth and breadth of experience and new perspectives to the team. With her insight, we will ensure Listen Technologies is in a solid position to continue to maximize business value for our customers and deliver on our promise to bring exceptional listening experiences to end users.”
Franklin has helped Listen Technologies deepen its relationships with partners and customers. Her work leading communications on behalf of Listen Technologies has been vital in achieving company alignment and bringing increased awareness to the work Listen Technologies does to foster inclusion and help people hear in challenging environments.
Franklin’s creative approach to marketing has raised awareness of the communication challenges that hinder inclusion, engagement, and shared experiences in work, educational, worship, and hospitality settings, and demonstrated how Listen Technologies’ solutions are helping venues and businesses overcome these barriers.
“I’ve always believed that success is driven by intention. Good leaders choose to put others’ interests first,” said Franklin. “Inclusion is more than a buzzword or a company initiative; it is the catalyst for both personal and company growth—everybody deserves to be heard.”
