Kristine Fasnacht: The Innovation 50

Head of the community team, Reddit

Moderators on Reddit temporarily shut down the news site’s community pages when its highly respected director of talent Victoria Taylor was reportedly fired without explanation in July. Taylor soon after joined office rental space startup WeWork as its first digital community director, with Reddit’s popular no-holds-barred Ask Me Anything sessions – which have attracted newsmakers from actor Channing Tatum to President Barack Obama to many Fortune 500 CEOs – handed over to Wynter Mitchell. During the AMA blackout process, users were redirected to community manager Kristine Fasnacht, known to the network’s aficionados via the username "krispykrackers." Her new responsibilities within the organization see her acting as a liaison for all moderators on the platform. Fasnacht served in her most recent role at Reddit since March 2014. Before that, she was a manager of client relations for more than three years.
