And, with more than a dozen years of experience in digital media, Moore will be responsible for development and execution of consultative sales strategies, aligning ShopIgniter's social + mobile solutions with client and partner business goals.
"Brands have spent years building their fan base, and investing in apps and creating a robust social presence. Now, they are asking: 'What next?' I'm so excited about ShopIgniter because they are leading the wave of this second phase of social marketing, providing a real framework to help brands assess, plan and enact strategies that realize their true reach and monetization potential through a combination of creative, paid media, and analytics," said Kistner.

He was the key component behind the development of Webtrends' Facebook Analytics and its end-to-end Facebook campaign solutions, a market first for the industry.

I'm thrilled to join ShopIgniter, the team that day over day sets the standard for driving engagement and optimal performance across mobile and social channels," said Moore. "At the end of the day, ShopIgniter stands alone in its understanding of the tremendous consumer value brands need to provide at the point of interaction."
