Social123, a 2015 Signature graduate company of the Advanced Technology Development Center at Georgia Tech, said it will double its personnel, and projects it will add more than 30 new positions to the organization in 2016. Affected departments will be sales, product & technology, customer success, and marketing, the company said.
The company helps its clients identify all the missing or inaccurate records in their databases and enrich it with more than 35 fields of social data, email validation, and lead generation.
The announcement comes as Social123 also said it hired Geoffrey Hom to head its finance department and oversee all aspects of the company’s investments, finances, and human resources. Hom, who has more than 20 years of industry experience, was most recently with RazorInsights as the vice president of finance, where he aided in the transition of financials and records during the acquisition by Athenahealth. Prior to that, he spent nearly six years at Vitrue as a corporate controller, where he played an instrumental role in the company being acquired by Oracle.
“Geoffrey’s experience has already made him a key addition to the Social123 family,” said Aaron Biddar, Social123’s CEO. “Geoffrey complements our team and brings contagious energy and drive to an industry ready for change. He will contribute greatly to the continued success of Social123.”
