Headline, an early-stage tech investor, has bolstered its investment team with four new vice presidents.
The San Francisco-based firm recently hired Matt Brown as a VP for its consumer tech investment team. Previously, Brown worked at The Chernin Group, where he led investments in businesses such as Dapper Labs, Sketchy, Lovevery and Goldin. In his new role, Brown will work alongside partner Jett Fein.
Headline also promoted three senior associates to vice president: Taylor Brandt, Jacob Conger and Nicolas Von Blottniz.
