New Paid Social Media and Content Technology Company, TalkAhead, Launched

Jan 11, 2010, 09:00 ET from TalkAhead, Inc.

NEW YORK, Jan. 11 /PRNewswire/ -- TalkAhead, Inc. officially launched today. Although the company has been under development in stealth mode the past year, TalkAhead is a new paid social media and content technology company co-headquartered in New York City and Israel. The company will be introducing its first solution, Sponsored Comments, in the very near future.

TalkAhead was formed with the sole purpose to develop and provide online publications, new sites, top web destinations and blogs with a turnkey, web-based platform to generate new revenues for their respective businesses.

"We're excited about the opportunity to introduce a new technology and online paid content category that will provide marketers, public relations professionals, media planners / buyers and brand managers with another compelling channel to promote their products or services," said Philippe Lang, Co-Founder and President of TalkAhead.

The company was founded by four successful entrepreneurs that have struck gold before. Eyal Halahmi, Tal Goldberg, and Eitan Ron started HumanClick in 1999, a global provider of live chat services which was later sold to LivePerson, Inc. Philippe Lang joined the company shortly after its founding. After significant consideration and research, the four entrepreneurs determined that a new venue was needed that would allow advertisers to respond directly to news articles and blog posts in a more open transparent manner, and provide publishers with a new revenue channel at the same time.

TalkAhead's executive management team consists of:

  • Eitan Ron, Chief Executive Officer. Eitan has overall responsibility for worldwide operations and strategic vision of TalkAhead.
  • Tal Goldberg, Chief Technology Officer. Tal is responsible for developing and delivering TalkAhead's strategic product direction.
  • Eyal Halahmi, Vice President of Research Development. Eyal overseas the development of the TalkAhead platform.
  • Philippe Lang, President Sales and Marketing. Philippe leads business development, marketing and public relations for TalkAhead.
