Catherine Flynn has left Meta to join LinkedIn to lead the platform’s agency development and marketers’ education in Asia-Pacific, Campaign can reveal. 

Flynn spent 11 years at Meta in various marketing roles globally, and was most recently senior director of global customer marketing. She led marketing for Meta's global agency, clients and partnerships, categories and engineering businesses, including environmental and social governance (ESG).

Flynn’s new title at Microsoft-owned LinkedIn will be director of agency development and marketer education for APAC, where she will lead the team responsible for building partnerships with advertising, marketing and media agencies. 

She will also oversee the efforts to develop and deliver scaled education programs to help marketers augment their platform expertise and B2B marketing capabilities.
