Former Reed Business President Jeff DeBalko Joins ShopCity.com as Executive Chairman
ShopCity.com founder Colin Pape added, “We are very fortunate to have someone as accomplished and community-minded as Jeff join our team. He brings a unique blend of business and technology experience at the executive level, insights into what it takes to succeed as a fast moving startup but also a true understanding of what is required to build a world-class global company."
Born in Pennsylvania, DeBalko now splits his time between Silicon Valley and Pebble Beach, CA.
Jeff joins a world class team of advisors including the NFIB's #1 business author, Chuck Blakeman, and Steve Outtrim, the youngest-ever CEO of an Australian public company.
ShopCity.com's 8,000 local marketplaces including ShopPaloAlto.com, ShopBuffalo.com, ShopCorona.com and ShopBirmingham.com connect local businesses and consumers in a way that strengthens the local economy and helps shoppers 'put their money where their house is' by enabling them to shop online within their community. The company's innovative exclusive partnership model enables media companies such as The Buffalo News (owned by Berkshire Hathaway) to provide local businesses with an online solution that is more effective than other alternatives such as Groupon and Yelp.
