Galgon, Ex-aQuantive, Joins Market Leader


Kirkland, WA-based Market Leader (NASDAQ: LEDR) announced today that Mike Galgon has joined its board of directors. Galgon is the co-founder of online advertising technology firm aQuantive (along with Nick Hanauer and Scott Lipsky) and the former chief advertising strategist for Microsoft (NASDAQ: MSFT). Hanauer is also a board member and investor in Market Leader, which was formerly known as HouseValues, and makes marketing software and tools for the real estate industry. (History lesson: rumor has it that Galgon was about to join Pacific Coast Feather, Hanauer’s family business, when they hatched the plan for Avenue A Media, which became aQuantive.)
