PeerIndex Hires Former Klout VP To Scale Up, And Cash In On Influencer Boom
PeerIndex, the Klout-like influencer ranking startup which this year picked up a $3 Million Series A round, is beefing up its team and scaling up operations. Specifically, it's hired Garth Holsinger, Klout's ex-VP of Sales and Business Development, to help accelerate their marketing and partnerships. This makes for a significant move, especially since they've lured him away from the very agency he set up after he left Klout. They're also bringing on David Galbraith (former co-founder of Moreover and co-founder of Yelp) and Rikk Carey (ex-Napster and co-founder of Plaxo) as advisers. These are pretty heavyweight names. And tonight they also go live with a campaign with on-demand limo service Uber. Busy busy.
