Our Leadership Team

Carlsbad

Dwayne Lafleur, Gründer & 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.

John Cole, CCO

Formerly an officer in the British Royal Navy, John was a pioneering director of Media Run Group, which founded several online businesses—Media Run Search, Media Run Ad Network, and Blowfish Digital Ad Agency. Following the acquisition of Media Run Ad Network by Adknowledge Inc. in 2007, John managed the Adknowledge Social Games division in Europe. This included the Super Rewards virtual currency platform which monetized Facebook, MMO & Mobile Games, and Cubics—their social display advertising platform. After a brief and successful foray into the world of independent online publishing—as founder of UK website operator, ‘Epirical’—John sold his online interests to Ezoic in 2011 and joined as Chief Customer Officer. John recently moved back to London to open Ezoic’s London office.

Mike McGuire, Geschäftsführer

Mike joined Ezoic in April 2013 after serving as an officer in the Royal Navy, reaching the rank of Commander. No stranger to technology, he employed, maintained, and developed state-of-the-art weapons, sensors, and computers.
