On Tuesday the Toronto-based digital development and design firm announced that it had hired former Twitter Canada managing director and, as of this week, former chief strategy officer with, to serve as its new president and chief revenue officer.

TribalScale CEO Sheetal Jaitly will remain in his position.

In a Jan. 30 blog post, Stewart said she was thrilled by the opportunity to join the TribalScale team, saying it provides “essential, innovative services unlike anything I’ve seen and has the means to invest in and create new tech businesses through its Venture Studio arm.”

“Today, technology is vital to an organization’s survival — it’s no longer on the fringes. All companies should be tech companies,” she said. “I believe this is where our future is headed, which is exactly why I’ve joined TribalScale. The company’s values align with mine, and I’m thrilled by the opportunity to lead this team.”

During Stewart’s tenure with Diply, which began in September 2016, the London, Ont.-based pop culture website was ranked number one on Deloitte’s Fast 50 Tech growth companies in Canada. According to TribalScale, Stewart will retain an advisory role with the company.

Prior to Diply, Stewart served as Twitter’s vice-president of media before becoming the first managing director of Twitter Canada, which under her leadership became the social media icon’s fastest-growing source of revenue.

Before joining Twitter in 2013, she had served as executive vice president of the CBC’s English services.
