Addition Furthers Advertising Technology Company’s 2013 Momentum and Growth

BOSTON – June 26, 2013 (BUSINESS WIRE) – Nanigans, Inc., developer of the predictive lifetime value SaaS platform for performance marketing at scale, has appointed Antonio Garcia-Martinez as advisor. Antonio joins Nanigans after a strong year of growth, with the company growing revenues 2.5X, serving 200 enterprise customers, and operating four offices worldwide.

Antonio comes to Nanigans after more than two years developing Facebook advertising technologies. Antonio is a former ad targeting product manager at Facebook, most recently spearheading and directing Facebook’s real-time bidding exchange, Facebook Exchange (FBX), from inception through launch and scaling.
