Mark Dillon elevated to CEO
PowerReviews, a software and data company powering the authentic voice of the customer for brands and retailers, announced the appointment of Mark Dillon as chief executive officer. Mark initially joined PowerReviews in May 2019 as senior vice president of sales and was quickly promoted to chief revenue officer late last year, having been responsible for driving record bookings growth at the Company. Matt Moog, who founded the Company as Viewpoints in August 2006 before acquiring PowerReviews and rebranding as such in June 2014, has stepped down as CEO to pursue his next entrepreneurial venture.
Moog commented, “I have known Mark for nearly 20 years, and I was thrilled when he agreed to join PowerReviews nine months ago. After working closely with Mark over the last year, I have complete confidence that Mark is the right person to succeed me as CEO. Mark’s ability as a leader to bring people together to focus, collaborate and execute is best-in-class, and I know he will be successful in executing the PowerReviews vision.
