Verena Papik was recently announced as the Global Head of Marketing at UK-headquartered MusicGIF network TuneMoji, where she’s responsible for driving the company’s international marketing strategy and cultivating key strategic business and talent partnerships.

Most recently, Verena was Director of Business EMEA for musical.ly. Inspired in 2015 by the pace and innovation of the Chinese technology market, she became the first European employee in the Shanghai office of 35 people.

She then went on to open offices in Berlin and London, successfully expanding the European user-base - all leading up to the company’s acquisition and eventual merger.
