Cantarus CEO Lee Adams is pleased to announce that associations and membership veteran Rob Kaighn has joined Cantarus as Director, North America & Global Partnerships.

“Rob joins us this week after decades of senior roles with software vendors serving the sector and as membership body staff. Rob’s experience and reputation are consistent with our approach to serving dozens of organisations in the UK and Europe. We look forward to Rob leading our growth strategy in the North American market.”

In accepting the position, Rob noted:

“I have long been familiar with Cantarus, its delightful company culture, and its compelling digital solutions through my previous roles in the US associations sector. I'm tremendously excited to now be able to join the team and lead Cantarus' development in the US market, energized by a digital product and services offerings that already demonstrate significant appeal in North America.

Cantarus' Chief Product Officer, Mark Eichler, agreed, commenting:

I’m really excited to be working with Rob again following our time together at Higher Logic. I sense he is as excited as I am by the opportunity to bring our MemConnect mobile app platform for associations to the fuller consideration of membership sector leaders. Of course, Rob will also be spearheading our agency-side web dev business leveraging our 35 full-stack developers with extensive Umbraco, Kentico, DNN and other expertise. Having served some of the largest membership bodies in the UK for a decade, Cantarus is, with the addition of Rob, now ready to offer US and Canadian organisations a compelling alternative to membership benefits delivery and engagement.

Rob will be joining Mark, and Cantarus' CEO and founder, Lee Adams, at the Higher Logic Super Forum in National Harbor, MD, on Wednesday April 10th where the agency will showcase MemConnect's best-in-class mobile app experience for Higher Logic.
