Jerrick Media Holdings Inc., the Fort Lee-based parent company and creator of the Vocal platform, announced on Thursday that Mark Standish has been named chairman of the board of directors, taking over the role from Leonard Schiller, who will remain a member of the board.

Additionally, Mark Patterson and Laurie Weisberg also began their roles as independent board directors.

The three new appointments will help propel Jerrick’s revenue growth and strategic vision.

“In addition to being my longtime mentor and friend, Mark Standish brings deep expertise in financial services, strategic growth, and organizational development acquired over the course of an impressive career,” Jerrick CEO Jeremy Frommer said. “Mark’s leadership only further bolsters our momentum as we head into August, the month we expect to uplist.”

Along with the new additions, the company established an Audit Committee (chaired by Standish), a Compensation Committee (chaired by Patterson) and a Nominating & Corporate Governance Committee (chaired by Weisberg).

“It is a particularly exciting time to be joining Jerrick as the company embarks on its next chapter. Jerrick’s success thus far is a testament to the inherent value of the vocal technology platform and the leadership of a strong management team and board,” Standish said.
