San Diego, CA (PRWEB) July 02, 2012
MojoPages, the People-Powered Yellow Pages and local listings search engine, today announced that it has named Sam Estrin as the company’s new Chief Technology Officer (CTO). In his new role, Estrin will be responsible for taking MojoPages’ development to the next level with several enhancements and patent-pending technologies, which he authored.
With more than seventeen years of experience launching his own startup companies and lending his technical expertise for well-established public corporations, Estrin has a solid track record of leveraging his distinctive skill set to achieve success. At the start of his career, he single-handedly created the first version of the world’s largest online vitamin supplement and mineral supplier, MotherNature.com, which went public in 1999 and reached a market cap of $600 million. He then went on to launch MediaWebcast, a publicly-traded “trans-media” company and then Odin Metatech, a firm that produced technology solutions such as enterprise content management and rapid web application frameworks.
“Sam’s strategic vision, industry experience and proven capabilities will serve as valuable contributions to our leadership team and the future of Mojo as we move into our next phase of innovation,” said Jeff Federman, CEO of MojoPages. “I have always admired his constant hunger for education and his innate entrepreneurial spirit – it’s a huge win for us to have him on board as CTO.”
In addition to his vast experience in executive leadership roles, Estrin recently held a CTO position at TASER International and maintains advisory positions for many companies, including P4RC. He is continually sought after by startups and large corporations for his expertise, including SEO/SEM, software development, big data, application architecture, web services, cloud computing, emerging technologies and more.
