Dwayne Lafleur, Founder & CEO

Dwayne Lafleur is an entrepreneur, hands-on technologist, founder, and CEO of Ezoic. Previously, Dwayne founded Cubics, the first display ad network for Facebook app developers. The ad network was unique because it used anonymous demographic data to target advertising to Facebook app users and launched prior to Facebook’s own ad targeting system.

After selling Cubics to Adknowledge Inc. in 2007, the social display division grew to serve more than 500 million ads per day. Dwayne continued to innovate within the company, spearheading the use of cloud computing architecture to handle the large volume of ads being served within Facebook apps and becoming Amazon’s biggest AWS customer at the time.

At Ezoic, Dwayne has established a business that is technically interesting, a first-of-its-kind, and able to scale to a large online market. He is originally from Alberta, Canada and now lives with his family in Carlsbad, CA.
