Claravine Appoints Justin Shepard as its First Chief Financial Officer
The Data Standards Cloud Company continues to accelerate its growth by adding to its executive leadership team
Claravine, a pioneer in data integrity for the global enterprise, has appointed Justin Shepard as its first Chief Financial Officer (CFO). The newly added role supports the continued growth of Claravine and the increasing demand for its Data Standards Cloud platform within the enterprise. This demand is being driven by disruption in digital advertising and marketing being driven by increased data compliance needs, campaign measurement challenges due to signal loss and a heightened focus on first-party data.
Shepard joins Claravine’s executive team with CFO experience from Flytedesk, the largest campus advertising technology network in the US; Clear Ballot Group, leading provider of government technology solutions that increases trust and transparency for the backbone of America’s democracy; and Brand Networks, a social marketing and advertising technology company. Shepard will play a key role in the effective running of the business’ finance, strategy and operations functions. Shepard will report to Claravine’s CEO Chief Executive Officer, Verl Allen.
“Claravine has had an incredible amount of momentum over the past year, with its goal being to continue transforming the way brand marketers and agencies manage and action data to deliver the greatest impact on the businesses they serve,” said Shepard. “I’m excited to join this incredible team and help enable further growth for the business in the years ahead.”

With a collaborative user interface and strategic integrations with top customer experience platforms such as Adobe and Google, Claravine’s platform, The Data Standards Cloud®, helps global organizations define, apply and connect standards across their ecosystem for faster decisions, greater agility and increased ROI.
