CEO Nancy Shone has worn many hats in her life: wife, mother, engineer, business development manager, video production specialist, and entrepreneur. Nancy has taken a little something from every career and built upon it. Today, she is the owner of her own multi-media, digital marketing firm and now the CEO and founder of Pingster.
Her experience in video production and years of extensive background in design were the cornerstones from which the concept of Pingster developed. Always looking for a better idea and easier way of doing things, Nancy took her frustrations with Instagram and Facebook and began to develop the nascent concept of Pingster. She wanted an app that allowed everyone their moment in the sun, and leveled the playing field when it came to social channel photo-sharing. According to Nancy, “With Pingster everyone becomes an influencer.”
Nancy lives with her husband, three children, and one rather loud and chatty Siamese that thinks it’s a dog.
