CHICAGO, Nov. 26, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Popular Pays, a tech company that helps brands collaborate with influencers and creators, is excited to announce Amanda Lannert, CEO of Jellyvision, as their first Independent Board Member.

Amanda is a major player in Chicago tech; under her leadership, Jellyvision has tripled in size over the past five years and been named one of the Chicago Tribune's Top Workplaces six years in a row. In particular, Popular Pays is eager to learn from Amanda's own recent experience in transforming Jellyvision from a services company fueled by episodic revenue to a SaaS company with recurring revenue.

"I benefited a ton from having mentors to check in with as we evolved Jellyvision into a SaaS company," says Amanda. "So I'm excited and grateful to be able to help out the leadership at Popular Pays however I can as they're doing the same."

The addition of Amanda to the board is the latest step in Popular Pays' SaaS journey, which started with their Series B round and the addition of lead investor Beringea. As the content creator and influencer marketing industry continues to evolve, the ability for Popular Pays to offer a SaaS option to clients has become increasingly attractive due to the efficiency, transparency, and agility it can provide.
