Lainne began her 16-year digital career at the startup eGroups selling email advertising. From there, Lainne sold to agencies and direct advertisers at Yahoo for five years and then ventured off to start her own ecommerce company.

To diversify her skill set, she moved into a business development role at Kontera, bringing publishers into the in-text network. Her past experience also includes sales leadership at Tribal Fusion and serving as the Senior Director of Northwest and the RVP of Owner IQ West Coast.  

Her well-rounded experience in the business development arena has helped her build publisher networks spanning all the way to online advertising sales. She moved into recruiting two years ago as the VP of Executive search for the West Coast.

Outside of the office, she loves spending time with her two children, Maya and Cameron, playing piano, and singing.
