What: Liz Saracheck-Blacker leaves Terra as CRO and Emilia Peña is appointed director of sales.
Why it matters: Terra is also expanding its programmatic team with new hires.

TerraTerra has announced that Liz Sarachek Blacker, who has served as Chief Revenue Officer for Terra for more than three years is leaving the company "to pursue a new opportunity". Emilia Peña has been named director of sales and also Luciano Islas joins Terra as Senior Programmatic Sales Manager in the U.S.
