Cleveland Business Journal: Jeff Charney, retired CMO for Progressive Corp., named UnifyWork director

Written by The Cleveland Business Journal

UnifyWork, a Cleveland startup that matches job seekers with jobs, has named Jeff Charney as a director.

Charney is an award-winning marketing professional who retired early this year as Progressive Corp.'s (NYSE: PGR) chief marketing officer and then launched an invitation-only marketing industry collective MKHSTRY ("Make History" without its vowels).

"Matching the right people with the right job is so vital to the nation's success and is an important cause for me personally," Charney said in a statement. "UnifyWork is exactly the type of company poised to transform this critical but somewhat slow-moving industry."
