New York, NY—Yodle, a leader in online lead generation and web services for local businesses, appointed Court Cunningham as Chief Executive Officer. Cunningham, who built DoubleClick's Marketing Automation business from zero to $55 million in revenue over 5 years, will have responsibility for leading Yodle through the rapid growth of a national sales rollout.
Cunningham joins Yodle's executive team from Community Connect, a niche social networking company, where he was Chief Operating Officer, with responsibility for leading its consumer marketing, product management and development efforts.
Prior to Community Connect, Cunningham was Vice President and General Manager of Marketing Automation at DoubleClick. In this role, he was responsible for the sales, product management, operations and the P&L of DoubleClick's suite of hosted technology products for direct marketers. Cunningham was instrumental in building DoubleClick's email marketing product, DARTmail, into the industry leader where DoubleClick had more revenues, customers and email delivery volume than any other player in the market.
"Court brings a wealth of experience and leadership to Yodle's executive team, as he has held operational, marketing, sales and technical roles over the last 10 years," said Rob Stavis, Yodle Board member and Managing Partner at Bessemer Venture Partners. "As we prepare to execute our aggressive growth plan, Court will bring a unique level of insight and maturity."
"Yodle has done a spectacular job of cost effectively and simply generating phone calls and business leads for local businesses," said Cunningham. "Yodle's tremendous organic growth and high customer retention rates have helped the company generate a reputation for reliability and quality in the marketplace. I look forward to continuing this growth and helping lead Yodle to the next level."
