Doug is the Chief Executive Officer of TargetSpot, Inc., a leading streaming media advertising technology provider and marketplace.

Prior to co-founding TargetSpot, Doug served as Chief Operating Officer of Seevast, Inc. which operates marketing services companies Kanoodle, Pulse 360 and Moniker. While at Seevast, Doug was responsible for the management of their automated content and affiliate networks, the search division, the relevancy/editorial department, domain monetization, and all product development and management. Under Doug's leadership, his team has authored complex yield optimization algorithms (for which he is a named author on the patent), designed and launched an innovative behavioral targeting network called BrightAds Cookies, and built a highly acclaimed advertiser interface. In addition, Doug led Seevast's corporate development efforts and sourced, diligenced and closed two major acquisitions.

Before joining Seevast, Doug was Senior Vice President, Partner Development and Operations for About.com. While there, he helped grow the Luna Network, a start up ad network based on niche site partnerships, to over one billion ad impressions per month. The Luna Network later merged into Sprinks, where Perlson was responsible for developing and managing the Sprinks distribution network as well as other key partnerships and operational responsibilities. At the end of 2003, Sprinks was acquired by Google. Immediately following the acquisition, Perlson joined Kanoodle's management team, which was ultimately re-branded as Seevast.

Perlson also has founded and consulted to several online and traditional small businesses. He is a licensed attorney, and has served as Counsel and Chief of Staff to several elected officials, and as an Assistant Attorney General for the State of New York in the Investor Protection and Securities bureau.

Doug earned a J.D. from Emory University School of Law and a B.A. from the State University of New York at Albany.
