Former CEO Rick Faulk’s departure from Mzinga Inc. and a second round of layoffs have consolidated the company behind its new flagship product, an enterprise social media marketing, customer support and human resources platform launched into a beta trial stage earlier this year, new CEO Barry Libert says.
Faulk, who helped Libert found Mzinga in 2007 from a merger of two companies, left the company voluntarily.
In March 2008, Mzinga bought community content management software maker Prospero Technologies LLC.
Along with laying off 40 employees, Mzinga made several internal promotions, moving Joel Worrall to vice president of engineering and development; Tamie Johnson to vice president of engineering services; and Dan Bruns to executive vice president and special advisor for social media. Recently, Mzinga announced the hire of former Centive Inc. CFO Lisa Mastrangelo as company CFO.
