PeopleBrowsr Names Andrew Grill as the UK CEO

By Jen Charlton, June 7, 2011

Exciting news at PeopleBrowsr…

We have appointed Andrew Grill as CEO of UK operations. Andrew joins PeopleBrowsr from Visible Technologies, where he was Head of International Client Strategy.

Well-known amongst digital strategists and social media agencies, he will be responsible for expanding PeopleBrowsr’s presence in the UK market.

We’ve experienced tremendous growth in the US with Fortune 500 clients such as Fox, Honda, Kodak, SAP, Westfield and Vodafone. Earlier this year we officially launched our social media command headquarters in San Francisco, in addition to offices in New York and Sydney. Andrew joins us at an exciting time for social media in the UK, with Twitter’s UK expansion and more brands starting to invest strategically in digital.

“I have been watching PeopleBrowsr for some time,” says Andrew, “PeopleBrowsr has the most advanced conversation technology in the market, they have been receiving the Twitter Firehose and collecting every Tweet since 2008. PeopleBrowsr is at the centre* of the social media revolution in the UK and Europe and I’m looking forward to spearheading the continued growth of the company.”

Jodee Rich added, We are delighted to have Andrew join our Global team of Senior Executives. We’ve established an international presence and we’re keen to have strong leadership based in London.”

Not too long ago, we released 1,000 days of Twitter data for intelligent social search with ReSearch.ly. We’re so happy with the positive response from the social media community that we’ve integrated ReSearch.ly into the PeopleBrowsr Platform. ReSearch.ly allows extensive capabilities to filter by keyword, date/time, location and profile information to find highly targeted communities with demographic, psychographic, geo-localised and time-targeted criteria.

At PeopleBrowsr, we’re assembling the collective intelligence through storing, retrieving and indexing public human conversations. We help brands to identify and engage influencers, cultivate real-time communities, conduct specialised research reporting for in-depth insights and human sentiment analysis, and develop hyper-targeted campaigns.

Other  recent milestones include the release of the PeopleBrowsr API and the opening of PeopleBrowsr Labs at the San Francisco headquarters. Stay tuned, as we’ll announce further news on our London expansion in the coming weeks!
