By Bret McCormick

Venuetize has hired BEN REUBENSTEIN as Chief Technology Officer. Reubenstein first joined the mobile tech and ecommerce platform in October '20 as an advisor to CEO JON ROMM after Venuetize co-Founder & COO KARRI ZAREMBA left to take a job with MLB. Reubenstein, who fills a vacant CTO position and will report directly to Romm, built one of the first 100 apps on the Apple App Store and was CEO of mobile development firm Double Encore when it was bought by WPP in '14. Prior to working with Venuetize, Reubenstein built and led teams working on apps for the NBA, March Madness Live, PGA Tour, Pokemon TV and American Idol, among others. Reubenstein’s experience with real-time, live situations will be a unique and useful addition to the Venuetize team as it looks to boost its CMS, analytics, and infrastructure.
