Merkle Names Peter Randazzo as Chief Technology Officer, Product

April 26, 2016
Columbia, MD

Merkle (merkleinc.com), a leading technology-enabled, data-driven performance marketing agency, announced the appointment of Peter Randazzo to Chief Technology Officer, Product. Randazzo will lead the product and engineering efforts that power the agency’s industry-leading marketing platforms and cutting-edge solutions.

In this role, Randazzo will assume responsibility for the design, development, and management of Merkle’s technology products. These include proprietary data and identity assets (DataSource and Connected Recognition); a search management and bid optimization platform (Merkle Search); an analytics and measurement platform (Merkle Insights); people-based marketing technologies (MerkleONE); and an audience-based publisher product (Publisher Addressable Marketplaces).

In 2015, Merkle launched MerkleONE, the first-in-market solution that uses insights derived from the combination of customer data and US consumer data to enable marketers to capitalize on the opportunity of people-based digital marketing. Using the same MerkleONE technology and data infrastructure, the company also launched Publisher Addressable Marketplaces, which enables addressable audience targeting across its digital properties by matching CRM and publisher first-party data

This new, enterprise-wide role is an expansion of Randazzo’s previous function as chief technology officer of Merkle’s Agency Services organization. All Merkle technologies are singularly focused on providing successful results for clients, powered by customer data.

“Peter’s extensive history in the technology space, as well as his background in both the advertising and publishing domains, will be a tremendous asset as we continue to evolve our market-leading solutions,” said John Lee, EVP and chief strategy officer for Merkle.
