Sep 22 15
Kik Interactive announced two executive appointments. As head of strategy and partnerships, Jae Kim will draw on his experience from Line where he served as head of strategy and operations at Line's U.S. headquarters. In addition, Alim Dhanji will transition from Kik's board of directors to become the company's first chief people officer, focusing on scaling Kik's workforce and strengthening its culture. Both hires come on the heels of Tencent's $50 million investment in the chat network. Kim will oversee the data, business and U.S. operations teams, and will build Kik's partner and developer ecosystems to deliver great chat experiences for American youth. Prior to joining the chat network, Kim doubled the size of Line's U.S. headquarters, overseeing all aspects of the business. Dhanji will be tasked with rapidly growing Kik's workforce and developing its culture as the company looks to double its workforce within the next year. He will also lead Kik's privacy, trust and safety teams to improve user safety. Prior to joining Kik, Dhanji was senior vice president at TD Bank Group and held senior executive roles at Citigroup and KPMG where he focused on culture, talent management, and building high-performance teams. He will be based at the company's Waterloo headquarters. Kik is hiring aggressively for its offices in Waterloo, New York, San Francisco, and Los Angeles.
