"The social space is very reminiscent of search in its early days – filled with emerging models, innovation and promise. BuzzLogic is well-positioned to capitalize on this opportunity as consumers flock to social platforms, fragmentation grows and the advertiser's need to target the right audience is paramount," said Peter O'Sullivan.

O'Sullivan brings more than 15 years of sales management experience with leading technology companies in the Silicon Valley, including Google, Geocities and Ziff-Davis. While at Google, O'Sullivan grew the Western ad team from four sales people to 53, and grew revenue from $19 million to $250 million.
