ShopAtHome.com Hires a Vice President of Marketing
Tim Mayer worked as the chief strategy officer for Trada, a crowdsourced PPC marketplace, where he led product management, engineering, marketing and sales.
Denver, CO — July 11, 2012 – ShopAtHome.com, the largest coupon search engine that connects upwards of 12 million consumers each month to thousands of online coupons and the best cash back savings, today announced that Tim Mayer has joined the company as Vice President of Marketing. Mayer’s background in product management, user experience and advertising makes him the perfect fit as the company’s growth continues to accelerate – both in terms of community size and comprehensiveness of offerings to its members.
While continuing to offer new ways for consumers to save, including the recent release of its free Coupon Codes Plus app for iPad, ShopAtHome.com’s focus remains steady – being the number one location for deals and cash back rewards on the web. In his new role, Mayer will be responsible for spearheading this objective, overseeing user experience and member engagement.
“Tim’s joining the ShopAtHome.com team is indicative of where we’re heading as a company – working to become a brand that uses technology to provide a memorable, personal savings experience, while remaining the best destination to save the most when you shop online,” said Marc Braunstein, president and founder of ShopAtHome.com. “His background brings the kind of experience we need to identify opportunities for additional revenue growth and more intelligently serve our members.”
Before joining ShopAtHome.com, Mayer worked as the Chief Strategy Officer for Trada, a crowdsourced PPC marketplace, where he led product management, engineering, marketing and sales. During his time with the company, he and his team grew revenue more than 700 percent, increased customer retention, and significantly grew the engineering and sales teams.
Prior to Trada, Mayer spent seven years at Yahoo!, during which time he held a variety of senior leadership roles. In his most recent position (2010) at Yahoo! as Vice President, Search Market Initiative, Mayer grew search query volume by 210 basis points following thirteen consecutive months of query share decline by Yahoo! Search. Additional positions included Vice President, North American Audience as well as Vice President, Search Business and Products.
Mayer has over 15 years of search experience with roles at Overture, FAST Search & Transfer/Alltheweb.com, Inktomi and Thomson Corp. He has been a successful speaker and keynoter at marketing conferences for many years including Search Engine Strategies, Blueglass, SMX, OMMA, Pubcon and SXSW.
