Patrick (not pictured): AC’s CEO of 8 months, Patrick Keane is dedicated to leveraging the latest technologies to create a better Contributor experience and online publishing system. Patrick’s primary goals are to provide better tools for Contributors, create a segment of authoritative niche experts across the major categories, build strong partnerships with other companies and of course, keep AC thriving in an increasingly competitive marketplace.

Mike: As the Chief Financial Officer of Associated Content, Mike’s the guy who makes sure all of AC’s trains are running in the right direction and arriving on time. He’s also responsible for determining Contributor compensation plans and rolling out new incentives. He’s been with Associated Content for two years, and previously worked at ESPN in the field of business/strategy and planning.

Craig: As AC’s in-house lawyer, Craig negotiates partnerships, fights fraudsters and keeps AC’s legal policies on track. He’s been with AC for 3 ½ years, and is currently working out AC’s policies regarding the new FTC guidelines, as well as amendments to the FAQ section. Stay tuned for another Happy Hour with AC Craig soon.

Jon: As AC’s new Director of Product, Jon works on AC’s design, user interface and functionality to improve the Contributor and visitor experience. His goal is to create a layout that encourages people to explore the site in more detail and stick around as long as possible. You’ll see his stamp in some new features and content themes that will be rolled out in the months ahead. Jon worked at Google for four years before joining the AC team.
