Stocks in this article: MEET

MeetMe ®, Inc. (NYSE MKT: MEET), the public market leader in social discovery, today announced that Richard Friedman will join the company as Chief Technology Officer on September 3, 2013.

Mr. Friedman was VP Software Engineering for MeetMe from January 2009 through March 2013, and was instrumental in expanding the platform’s presence internationally, migrating users to a single platform after the merger of myYearbook and QuePasa to form MeetMe, and building the company’s software engineering team.

Geoff Cook, CEO of MeetMe, stated, “We are thrilled that Rich is returning to the MeetMe team. He was a driving force in his first tenure with the company, helping to shepherd us from web to mobile, to lead the merger integration and internationalization effort, and to scale the company's revenue, building many of our successful advertising and virtual currency products. With Rich, we scaled our annual revenues from $9.1 million to over $40 million. As we continue to monetize our mobile platform and expand our mobile audience, his skills and expertise will enable the company’s success.”

Mr. Friedman added, “I welcome the opportunity to work with Geoff and our team at a key inflection point in its growth and development. I am enthusiastic about the prospects of the mobile pipeline, and I look forward to working with the team to build some truly innovative apps that have an impact on millions of people every day.”

Mr. Friedman replaces the company’s current CTO, Gavin Roy, who will resign to pursue an entrepreneurial endeavor, but will remain with the company and assist with the transition over the coming months. Geoff Cook added, “I had the great honor to work with Gavin building up first myYearbook and then MeetMe into leadership positions in social and mobile touching more than one million people every single day. When Gavin joined us, we had one server. Today, MeetMe runs across more than 500. We owe Gavin a tremendous debt of gratitude for his unflinching commitment over the years. He is a prolific coder and a proven leader, and we wish him well with his new opportunity.”
