Search engines and other e-retailers lose share as shoppers increasingly turn to Amazon for product searches, a Bloomreach survey finds.
Following the launch of Goodmail’s CertifiedVideo product, Gal Chanoch steps up from the director level to a larger role.
Gal Chanoch, who has more than 20 years of engineering, marketing and business development experience, has been promoted to vice president of product management at e-mail services vendor Goodmail Systems. He’ll be responsible for developing, managing and marketing Goodmail’s products in addition to identifying and building business partnerships.
Chanoch joined Goodmail in 2008 and most recently was director of product management. According to the company, he was instrumental in launching Goodmail’s recently released CertifiedVideo technology, which permits Goodmail customers to drop streaming video into the e-mails they send.
Previously he was senior director of product management for Convenos, a digital signage company. Prior to that, Chanoch was director of marketing at Transitive Corp., which was later acquired by IBM Corp. There, he helped develop virtualization technology. Earlier in his career, he worked at Intel Corp. and National Semiconductor.
“Gal brings a powerful blend of business acumen and technology chops to Goodmail,” says Daniel Dreymann, company co-founder and president. “His leadership will be essential as we continue to introduce inspiring new capabilities into the inbox for trusted brands, their consumers and ISPs.” ISPs refers to Internet Service Provider, the term commonly given to companies such as Yahoo, Microsoft, Comcast, Google and others that host e-mail accounts and work with Goodmail and other firms to separate legitimate e-mail from spam.
