Facebook advertising developer Blinq Media has hired John Tawadros as president and chief operating officer.
Tawadros had previously been the COO of iProspect from October 1999 though 2009; he’s credited with building the company from a basement start-up to a leading search marketing company.
At iProspect, Tawadros built and ran a world-class client services team with a 90 percent-plus client retention rate, a companywide training program and scalable business processes to drive efficiencies, communications, return on investment and overall performance. He played a significant role in integrating the company with Aegis after its $50 million acquisition in 2004.
BLiNQ Media Cofounder and CEO Dave Williams said:
John Tawadros brings a proven mix of technology, client services, strategy, and leadership savvy to BLiNQ Media. Global partnerships with Havas Digital and other major holding companies have taken the company to a new level where we need John’s caliber and experience to help us continue to build a world-class media and technology company that will capitalize on our rapid growth in U.S. and international markets. We are very pleased that John has joined the team and we are already benefitting from his industry leading experience.
“Social media is the new search,” said Tawadros. “Facebook, the biggest player in digital media, is now the home of innovation, and BLiNQ Media helps advertisers make the most of it. It’s an honor to join this creative, intelligent and hard-working team.”
