JetFuel by Vungle’s Tim Lenardo Named to Forbes 30 Under 30

We’re thrilled to announce that JetFuel by Vungle’s co-founder and CEO Tim Lenardo made the North America 2022 Forbes 30 Under 30 list in the Marketing and Advertising category.

Tim, 29, has founded 3 companies in his young career including JetFuel by Vungle (acquired by Vungle in July 2021), the leading influencer marketing platform that empowers both influencers and advertisers to succeed in the creator economy.

Before becoming a serial entrepreneur, Tim was an engineer at Amazon, Facebook, and Instagram. While at Instagram, he built the viral video app, Boomerang.

“I appreciate the selection but got to give a huge shout-out to JJ Maxwell and the rest of the JetFuel team,” Tim said. “Founders get the attention, but we’re just 1 piece of the puzzle. Major thanks to everyone involved!”

Making the list is no easy feat. Every year, Forbes editors and judges appointed by Forbes comb through tens of thousands of North America 30 Under 30 nominations to select 600 young leaders across 20 industry categories.

Tim and the 29 other selections were hand-picked by these 4 judges, all of whom are leaders in marketing and advertising: Vertebrae (acquired by Snap in July 2021) Founder Vince Cacace, Droga5 Founder David Droga, LinkedIn VP of Marketing Minjae Ormes, and Peleton Global Head of Marketing Dara Tresede.

Congrats, Tim!
