Last week, Local Matters, a local search technology company, announced that Tom Higley was appointed CEO after a nationwide search.
A longtime serial entrepreneur in the Denver metro area, Tom will lead Local Matters’ strategic vision and help the company capitalize on the rapid evolution of the local search industry with mobile technology and social networking.
Under his leadership, the company will expand its suite of mobile, online and social solutions, including digital loyalty apps, deals syndications tolls and local business listing management. Local Matters will also focus on growing its local search and discovery tools designed to promote local business listings across web and mobile devices.
I look forward to working with Tom in the months and years ahead as we continue to find and leverage new opportunities for growth in the local search industry.
