[x+1] Hires Digital Veteran, Lemonade Inc. Founder Tom Zawacki to Head Up Western Regional Client
Injecting some new entrepreneurial energy and vision, [x+1] has hired Tom Zawacki as Vice President, Western region. He was the founder of Lemonade Inc., a pioneer in social commerce that was named a Website of the Year in 2007 by Time/CNN.
Zawacki said he will bring to [x+1] the same spirit of innovation and entrepreneurship that led Lemonade Inc. to become one of the first companies to enable commerce within Facebook, for which it was named the Time Magazine/CNN Website of the Year in 2007.
“At Lemonade, we helped Fortune 1000 clients increase their digital marketing ROI by combining e-commerce with social networking to create a powerful new industry called social commerce,” he said. “This led to significant business performance results, and I believe [x+1] brings to the table that same type of compelling value proposition.”
“I believe the [x+1] Origin platform and data management capabilities help companies realize their digital marketing vision faster, and in a more integrated way,” Zawacki continued. “[x+1] has consistently demonstrated that its digital marketing hub moves clients from disparate digital marketing to unified relevant marketing. I want to be a part of that.”
Zawacki brings global leadership experience, having run worldwide digital marketing programs in Europe, South America and Asia-Pacific, and most recently social commerce programs in the UK and China. He has provided strategic consulting to Fortune 1000 brands across multiple industries, including financial, consumer packaged goods, technology, automotive, media, entertainment and travel.
Prior to Lemonade Inc., Zawacki headed up experiential marketing and innovation for Life LLC, working with major brands such as Phillips, Disney, Hewlett-Packard and ESPN.
At Modem Media, now Publicis Modem, Zawacki was employee number four and served on the executive management team, along with [x+1] Chairman and CEO John Nardone, who was President, International and [x+1] President and COO Peter Massey, who was Senior Vice President/General Manager. Together they helped lead an evolution from business to e-business while growing the company to 1,000 employees in 11 offices worldwide, achieving a successful IPO in 1999 and selling it to Digitas in 2004.
