Arlington company names VP of people
Allison Jno-Baptiste joins Storyblocks
Arlington-based stock media company Storyblocks announced Tuesday it has hired Allison Jno-Baptiste as its vice president of people.
Jno-Baptiste most recently served as the executive director of talent and resource management at Brown University. In her new role, she will oversee employee recruitment and diversity.
“I believe that the key to an organization’s success is not just its people, but its underlying mission and beliefs,” Jno-Baptiste said in a statement. “That’s what initially drew me to Storyblocks — the company’s values were so clear and genuine.”
Jno-Baptiste has also previously held human resource leadership roles with COMO Hotels and Resorts, Marriott and Georgetown University.
“Allison’s track record of successfully building career-nurturing environments for many prestigious organizations will be invaluable as we continue to develop our internal brand and people culture strategy,” Storyblocks CEO TJ Leonard said in a statement. “While we’re actively working to integrate diversity and inclusion efforts into our product offerings, especially with expanding the diversity of our inbound pipeline, I truly believe that change comes from within.”
Founded in 2009 by Joel Holland, Storyblocks started with funding from Updata Partners and QED Investors. North Atlantic Capital invested in the company in 2015.
