Tech and marketing go hand-in-hand, so it’s no wonder that Marketing Summit is a standalone conference within this year’s Web Summit. Today, we’re announcing 12 more speakers, on top of an already stellar lineup.

We’ll be welcoming leaders from a number of influential companies, from media powerhouses to not-for-profit organisations. Let’s take a closer look…

Benedict Evans – Partner – Andreessen Horowitz


Benedict is a Partner at Andreessen Horowitz, where he blogs about what is going on in the tech industry and predicts what is to come. He’s also a contributor on Forbes where he writes about mobile tech.

Jim Lanzone – CEO – CBS Interactive


Jim is the CEO of the media giant CBS Interactive, the umbrella group controlling CBS.com and lastfm.com, among others. He’s a man in demand, with Twitter reportedly approaching him to fill the CEO position that’s going. Plus, he knows a thing or two about startups. He founded Clicker, a guide for online TV and video, in 2009. It went on to gain $19 million in funding and was later acquired by CBS Interactive.

Yancey Strickler – CEO and Co-founder – Kickstarter


Since its 2009 launch, over 9 million people have backed projects resulting in a total of $2 billion pledged. Yancey has been there through it all. He’s also a keen writer, and was the Editor-in-Chief for eMusic for 4 years.

David Marcus – VP of Messaging Products – Facebook


When accepting the job as the Vice President of Messaging Products, David was eager to get his “hands dirty again attempting to build something new and meaningful at scale”. The opportunity to create was something he missed when he was the President of PayPal. He was propelled into the powerful position when his company, Zong, was acquired by eBay for $240 million.

Carolin Probst-Iyer – Manager, Global Social Media Center of Expertise – General Motors
