LX Ventures today announced that Ryan Holmes has joined its board of advisors.

Ryan Holmes is the founder and chief executive officer of Vancouver's HootSuite, a successful social media management firm.

"We are delighted to have Ryan join our world class Advisory Board at this time," said Mike Edwards, the CEO of LXV, which is also based in Vancouver. "Ryan is a recognized business builder and global leader in social media, and his experience will directly benefit all of our portfolio companies as they continue to accelerate."

Holmes has grown HootSuite from a lean startup of three people to a global leader of more than 300. His platform has eight million users, including 79 of the Fortune 100 companies.
