Viewpoints

Currently starting a project in Local Search from within Viewpoints.

Helped lead product strategy & took part in business development at Localeze as the company grew from having 3 search engine partners licensing the Localeze data & zero businesses paying to manage their on line business listing identity to having over 200 contracted search engine partnerships and nearly a million businesses paying to manage their online business listing identity.

Over the past decade, Gib has become a recognized thought leader in local search and speaks frequently at search industry conferences like BIA/Kelsey, PubCon, SES and SMX, among others. Prior to joining Localeze, Gib was a business development director at iCrossing and held positions at Chicago.Citysearch.com, Ameritech Yellow Pages and Advo.
