"In a geographically diverse medium like the Internet, it is vitally important for large enterprises to instantly welcome visitors with localized web content reflecting the visitor's native language, currency, customs and preferences," said Muller. "Digital Envoy is the clear leader in geo-targeting and my background in corporate sales will help bring NetAcuity to Fortune 500/Global 2000 companies, allowing those enterprises to increase their online sales and obtain a superior ROI by offering geo-targeted products and content in real-time."
"Pete's addition to our team will enable Digital Envoy to reach new markets and help more enterprises experience the benefits of geo-targeting on their web sites," said Dave Keller, Chief Executive Officer and President of Digital Envoy.
