"This is an extraordinarily exciting time for Bazaarvoice. We are creating innovative technology that addresses challenges on a magnitude typical of the world's largest search engines and social networks. Our clients see great value in our SaaS and shopper media solutions because we not only facilitate the acquisition of authentic word of mouth content and data at scale but also help them leverage the highly valuable earned media assets acquired through our network that represents an audience of hundreds of millions of shoppers," said Stephen Collins, chief executive officer of Bazaarvoice. "Great leadership and great people are essential to success in any business, and the addition of Gene and Marc will significantly enhance the outstanding team of people that serve our clients. We will continue to build our team globally to realize our tremendous global growth opportunities, and today, we have taken a big step forward in strengthening our leadership team."
