Todd Krizelman

Chief Executive Officer

MediaRadar

Growing up in Palo Alto, Todd Krizelman was born and raised near the epicenter of technology innovation. This early exposure encouraged him to be an entrepreneur and co-found one of the world’s first social media sites, theGlobe.com. He led theGlobe.com from inception to taking it public on NASDAQ; this online community grew to 20 million monthly users and was a top 25 site for five consecutive years. Afterward, Krizelman joined the largest European media company, Bertelsmann, where he worked for its publishing businesses, Gruner + Jahr and Random House. It was then that Krizelman began to recognize the challenges of selling advertising, including lack of data, time-intensive research and the increasingly fragmented landscape of advertising. With his expertise in ad sales and innovation, Krizelman joined veteran web architect Jesse Keller to found MediaRadar in 2007. After undertaking years of thorough research, development and data collection, MediaRadar is now the most comprehensive data company focused on the ad sales market.
