VERB To Appoint Former APPLE Executive Nancy Heinen to its Board of Directors

December 18, 2019 GMT

NEWPORT BEACH, Calif. and SALT LAKE CITY, Dec. 18, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- VERB Technology Company, Inc. (NASDAQ: VERB) (“VERB” or the “Company”), a leader in business-focused interactive video CRM, marketing, and sales enablement applications, expects to appoint Nancy Heinen to its board of directors at the organizational meeting of the board that will be held immediately after the Company’s Annual Meeting of Stockholders on December 20, 2019. This is the second appointment to VERB’s board announced this week, bringing the total number of VERB directors to six directors, including five independent directors and one inside director.

Nancy Heinen spent more than 25 years in senior executive roles in Silicon Valley, including as Senior Vice President, General Counsel and Secretary of Apple, Inc. Ms. Heinen now acts as a board member, investor, strategy consultant, and startup advisor. Ms. Heinen’s career began in private law practice, after which she was Associate General Counsel at Tandem Computers, Inc. and General Counsel of NeXT Software, Inc. In 1997 Steve Jobs recruited Ms. Heinen as a key member of the small executive team at Apple that turned around Apple’s struggling computer business and lead its successful emergence as a consumer product powerhouse, while also creating a safe and legal digital marketplace and building out Apple retail stores. Her worldwide responsibilities at Apple included all legal matters, including intellectual property, litigation, acquisitions, corporate governance, and securities compliance, as well as global government affairs and corporate security. Since leaving Apple, Ms. Heinen uses her in-depth experience across corporate, government and philanthropic sectors to help entrepreneurs and nonprofits build and scale innovations that tackle pressing social and environmental challenges at home and around the world. Ms. Heinen serves as Board Chair of both Teen Success, Inc. and First Place for Youth, and is a Board member and past Board Chair of SV2 - Silicon Valley Social Venture Fund. Ms. Heinen serves on advisory boards including Illuminate Ventures; University of California, Berkeley Center for Law and Business; and the Northern California Innocence Project. Ms. Heinen earned her B.A. and J.D. degrees from the University of California at Berkeley.

“We are very excited to welcome Nancy to our board,” stated VERB Chairman and CEO Rory J. Cutaia. “Nancy was part of Steve Job’s inner circle that took Apple from a troubled enterprise, to one of the most successful and valuable companies in the world, and the iconic brand we all respect today. Her experience, perspective, insights and resources will be enormously beneficial to our board of directors and management team, and I look forward to working closely with her to unlock the value we all believe VERB represents for ourselves and our stockholders. With the addition of Nancy, as well as Judith Hammerschmidt whom we announced earlier this week, I couldn’t possibly more excited for VERB and our stockholders in 2020 and beyond.”

Ms. Heinen stated: “It’s a privilege to be joining VERB’s board of directors. This company represents the unique combination of an extremely capable, talented, and dedicated management team and a highly unique disruptive technology. I look forward to working alongside Rory and the executive management team, as well as the board to help take this company to the next level and increase VERB’s value to customers and shareholders.”
