Boopsie for Libraries, the leading mobile platform for public libraries and academic libraries worldwide, announced today the expansion of the team to include Paul O’Leary as Senior Director of Marketing. Paul will be leading both product and marketing responsibilities for the organization.
“Paul’s breadth of online marketing and product management experience make him a great asset to our executive team,” said Tony Medrano, CEO of Boopsie for Libraries. “He combines rare leadership qualities with a deep understanding of how to both build and market quality products. Paul joins us at an exciting time of expansion and has the skills to take Boopsie to the forefront of a rapidly growing industry.”
Paul joins Boopsie with almost a decade of experience in online marketing, business development and product management leadership from some of the largest Internet companies in the world, including Google, Yahoo!, and eBay. Prior to joining Boopsie, Paul served as Vice President of Product and General Manager of MerchantCircle, an Internet marketing firm also based in the Bay Area. There, he built and managed a team of product managers while also managing the P&L for MerchantCircle.com, a leading small-to-medium business online community. Paul received his MBA from USC Marshall and his BA from Stanford University.
“I am incredibly thankful for the wealth of opportunities my education has provided for me and am excited to join a business whose mission is to make existing library content dramatically more accessible for everyone. I firmly believe education is one of the single most important things we can invest in, for ourselves and as a society. It is incredibly rewarding to join Boopsie and focus on expansion of a product that can really add value to our communities,” stated the new Head of Marketing at Boopsie for Libraries. “With mobile content consumption quickly becoming the norm, Boopsie helps libraries compete with businesses like Amazon and iTunes by making much of the same content people are currently paying for accessible for free from their local library via their phone or tablet device.”
