Marchese brings to SocialVibe a wealth of experience in developing business
models and brands that work in new media. Prior to co-founding SocialVibe,
Marchese consulted and ran a practice group that specialized in strategy
development for digital publishing and advertising. Marchese began his career
at Monster Worldwide, the parent company of Monster.com. He also served as
Chairman of BlockBeacon, a company that connects local businesses and local
consumers in real-time which was recently acquired by Dun & Bradstreet.
Marchese is also currently on the advisory board of the Paley Center’s
GENERATOR, a community for rising media professionals looking to influence the
evolution of media.

“Nothing can replace the passion and vision of a founder, and with Joe’s
passion and vision, now in combination with his experience in executive
management at a traditional media company, we couldn’t hope for a better
leader for SocialVibe’s next phase,” said Jeff Crowe, managing partner,
Norwest Venture Partners (NVP). “Marchese’s unique background brings an
insider’s knowledge back to SocialVibe. This understanding is what will help
further grow the company and ultimately drive positive change throughout the
advertising industry.”

Simply put, SocialVibe delivers human attention to a rich, interactive brand
ad experiences. By placing the emphasis on value vs. impressions, SocialVibe
enables premium publishers to focus on true consumer value creation rather
than pageviews. It also harnesses the power of storytelling for advertisers
and brands, by leveraging quality attention and interactive creative.
Engagement advertising through SocialVibe drives results as high as 10 times
the engagement of display. Nine of the top 10 U.S. brands and 11 of the top 12
agencies in the U.S. are working with SocialVibe.

“SocialVibe will be the answer for advertisers and publishers who are getting
caught in the now broken impression game,” said Marchese. “It isn’t really
that complicated; less ads for consumers, more impact for advertisers and
greater revenue for premium publishers. I’m excited to be back in the saddle –
and I’m ready to push both SocialVibe and the industry forward.”

Marchese is a graduate of Bentley University and received his bachelor of arts
degree in economics and finance.
