NEW YORK, March 5, 2020 — Zeta Global, a data and AI-powered marketing technology company that drives customer acquisition, retention and growth, today announced that technology industry veteran, Chris Greiner, has joined the company as Chief Financial Officer (CFO).

Greiner joins Zeta with over 20+ years of experience from successful public companies within the technology sector, with the last 10 years focused on Artificial Intelligence and analytics.

As CFO at Zeta, Greiner will report directly into CEO David A. Steinberg.
“We are thrilled to welcome Chris to Zeta. His experience as a public company CFO, along with his background of serving technology and Artificial Intelligence driven companies is an ideal fit for Zeta as we work to build upon our positive momentum, achieve greater operating efficiency and look toward our future plans within the market,” said Zeta Global Chairman, Co-Founder, and CEO, David A. Steinberg.
“I made the decision to join Zeta because I believe that with the depth of our proprietary data assets and results-driven AI technology, there is a massive opportunity to solve customers highest priorities – customer acquisition, engagement and retention,” said Chris. “Zeta’s technological differentiation in each of these areas is a recipe for powerful growth, and I am excited to partner with David and his management team to further position the Company for its next period of expansion.”
