Tigerpaw Software has hired a new marketing director to help with defining company products and promotions for customers.

The Bellevue, Nebraska-based professional services automation (PSA) software company hired Corey DeJong, a former AOL Instant Messenger (AIM) executive, as its new marketing director, where he is expected to leverage his background in marketing automation, lead generation and lead nurturing.

Prior to Tigerpaw, DeJong served as AIM's director of sales and service, and also as director of marketing. Before working with AIM, he served as a marketing consultant for several local and national clients.

"I’ve seen a lot of companies -- vendors, startups, partners -- over the course of my years in marketing life, and Tigerpaw is one of a kind," DeJong said.

DeJong will be based out of Tigerpaw's headquarters.
