SpectrumDNA has appointed Jeff Nolan, a venture capitalist and social media strategist, to its board of directors.

In 1998, Nolan began his explorations into social media during his tenure as venture partner for SAP Ventures where he managed a portfolio of investments and started the Venture Chronicles blog. Venture Chronicles and Nolan have been extensively sourced in The Wall Street Journal, San Jose Mercury News and Venture Capital Journal

Nolan also founded the Enterprise Irregulars Blogging Community, the enterprise software industry’s first blogging community that features over 40 bloggers covering the industry daily.

In 2005 Nolan was appointed director of the Apollo strategy group for SAP global marketing, leading the Oracle competitive strategies team which identified and implemented disruptive competitive strategies, including social media tactics.

Most recently, Nolan was the vice president of corporate development at NewsGator Technologies.

"SpectrumDNA is a unique company that fits very well with the topics I am interested in, including brand engagement, social media promotion and advertising, and syndication of content through social networks," says Nolan. "This is a potentially transformative portfolio of products and services with which this very capable team has been experiencing great success; I am honoured to be included in their efforts and look forward to contributing to future success."

"With Jeff’s experience in the software and social media industries, his contribution is invaluable to the next phase of our evolution," says Jim Banister, chief executive of SpectrumDNA. "While pushing social media boundaries with new products like PlanetTagger, our white-label location-based social media engine, we need ‘practical visionaries’ with domain expertise and strong business acumen to fully exploit the marketplace. Jeff embodies that combination."
