Versus Systems Inc. ("Versus" or the "Company") (Nasdaq:VS) (FRANKFURT:BMVB) today announced the appointment of Ms. Jennifer Prince to its Board of Directors. As the Global VP and Head of Content Partnerships for Twitter (NYSE:TWTR), Jennifer is responsible for Twitter's global content arm, working with the world's most renowned and conversation-driving publishers and creators on their creative, distribution and monetization. She leads Twitter's worldwide efforts engaging with media entities and individual creators across TV, film, music, sports, news, lifestyle, and gaming.
The addition of Prince to the Board of Directors comes as Versus is actively growing in the media and entertainment verticals since their IPO on the Nasdaq in January.

Jennifer Prince is well positioned to help shape the company's growth in the media space.

"The team is very impressive and I'm thrilled to join the Versus board to help drive impact and value with a team and technology that I believe in."

Leading media and entertainment at Twitter, the work she did at YouTube, Google, and Demand Media - Jennifer is exactly what Versus needs as we grow our sales organization and expand our product offerings into interactive media to serve a wider range of content publishers across broadcast, sports, streaming, and live events. We are thrilled to have her join the team at Versus," said Matthew Pierce, founder and CEO of Versus Systems.
