BuyWithMe Hires New CEO

1/12/11

BuyWithMe, an online group-buying startup founded in Boston and based in New York, said today it has named Jim Crowley its new chief executive. Crowley, the former CEO of Turbine and chief operating officer of m-Qube, succeeds Cheryl Rosner, who stepped down in December. It’s a key hire for BuyWithMe as the company ramps up its efforts to compete in an exploding sector that includes Groupon, LivingSocial, Tippr, and dozens of other growing startups. BuyWithMe started in 2009 and raised a $16 million Series B venture round last July.
