Quotient Promotes Chad Summe and Jason Young to Chief Roles
Quotient promoted two of its senior leaders, Chad Summe and Jason Young, to strengthen the company’s ability to deliver on the future of CPG and retailer marketing.
Summe is now chief operating officer and Young is the chief marketing and media officer.
As the COO, Summe is responsible for Quotient’s operations, revenue and go-to-market strategies with CPGs and retailers. Summe joined Quotient in 2012 and most recently was senior vp and general manager of brands and retail, leading all sales functions and overseeing brand and retail partnerships.
Beyond his contributions driving Quotient’s revenue growth, Summe has been instrumental in leading the company’s expansion in Cincinnati, where it currently has over 200 employees.
Summe started his career as a submarine officer (nuclear engineer) on the USS Topeka (SSN 754) in San Diego for the U.S. Navy’s Submarine Force. After five years, he moved to corporate America to work for Procter & Gamble. During his tenure, he led strategy and brand marketing in the company’s baby care division, working on Pampers (P&G’s biggest global brand) and Luvs.
Jason Young, based in Quotient’s New York office, is responsible for overseeing media, including media-related data strategy, product and engineering. He also is responsible for marketing strategy and execution for Quotient across all B2B and consumer initiatives.
Since 2017, Young was Quotient’s senior vp of media and general manager of its mobile advertising business, Crisp Mobile. Quotient in 2017 acquired Crisp, where Young was CEO.
Young is an industry expert with over two decades in digital advertising. He spent 20 years at Ziff Davis, once a leading global digital media company. It now operates brands such as PCMag.com, IGN.com and Everydayhealth.com.
Involved in the initial years of the digital advertising marketplace, Jason was part of the executive team that led Ziff Davis from a print-based business model to a pure play digital position. He served as president of Ziff Davis Internet and then as CEO.
