Karen Stocks's Biography

Karen Stocks was Twitter Australia’s first Managing Director and set up the local operations including its advertising business. Having been in the local market for over three years, Twitter Australia experienced strong growth under Karen’s leadership. Australia is part of the fastest growing region in the world for Twitter, which has more than three-quarters of its users outside the United States.

 

Karen was the 2014 Patron for Go Girl, an initiative to encourage more young women to consider study business/IT or IT at a tertiary level, and to appreciate the opportunities a career in IT can bring. She was an Ambassador for the World Netball Cup in 2015 and now sits on the Board of Netball Australia.

 

Karen was recently named one of the Most Influential Women in Australian Media by B&T magazine.

 

Prior to joining Twitter, Karen had a distinguished six year career at Google. In her most recent role she was the Managing Director, Mobile and Social Solutions, responsible for sales strategy and commercialisation for Google’s Mobile and Social Advertising products across Asia Pacific.

 

Before joining Google, Karen worked at Vodafone for 12 years, most recently as General Manager for Service Strategy. Karen holds bachelor’s in Financial Administration, an MBA and is a FCPA, with a passion of bringing new technologies to enhance the customer experience.

 

Karen’s entire career speaks of the value of embracing change: a skill which has helped her become one of the most influential women in media tech. It’s an ever-changing industry with no firm traditions or entrenched pecking orders.

 

She’s passionate, high-energy and open to new ideas.

 

Karen loves competitive Netball and getting outdoors. When she's not online, she's walking on the beach or playing taxi to her family.
