Company Also Announces New Records for Judgments and Labor Channel Partnerships

As the need for a labor-on-demand workforce increases globally, CrowdFlower is expanding our management team with talent that has a unique international perspective.

CrowdFlower, the leading provider of Labor-on-Demand solutions, today announced the appointment of three key executives to its management team to support its rapid growth. In their new roles, Miguel Nhuch, Raymond Lim, and Doug Bryan will help CrowdFlower identify market opportunities and respond to the increased global need for Labor-on-Demand solutions. The news corresponds to a 60 percent increase in the number of trusted judgments (microtasks) in just one month — a company record.

The company’s new executives include: Miguel Nhuch, who joins as Vice President of Worldwide Sales; Raymond Lim, who joins as Vice President of Finance; and Doug Bryan, who joins as Vice President of Services.

Miguel Nhuch, Vice President of Worldwide Sales, oversees CrowdFlower’s global sales and day-to-day business development. He has been part of the management teams of a number of successful startups, including enCommerce (now Entrust Technologies), Weblogic (now Oracle), and Forte Software (now Oracle). During this time, he grew business in Asia, Australia, Europe, and Latin America.

Raymond Lim, Vice President of Finance, is responsible for the day-to-day performance of CrowdFlower's finance, legal, HR, and accounting functions. Most recently, he was the Vice President of Finance for Jigsaw, where he readied the company for its $175 million acquisition by Salesforce.

Doug Bryan, Vice President of Services, oversees all operational aspects of the customer service department, from initial strategic planning to solution implementation and support. As Vice President of Worldwide Customer Services at Ariba, Bryan built the services team from the ground up to provide round-the-clock technical and product support in 10 languages.

The executive announcement occurs as CrowdFlower, which has doubled in size in fewer than six months, is establishing new records for the completion of microtasks. CrowdFlower’s labor pool completed more than 8.8 million trusted judgments (microtasks) in October 2010, eclipsing the 5.5 million completed in September. CrowdFlower has also partnered with 11 distributed labor pools, doubling the number of labor channels since January 2010.

Nhuch, Lim, and Bryan take up their duties immediately. They will be based in the company's headquarters in San Francisco, California.
