SAN MATEO, CA -- 08/11/11 -- Genius.com today announced its international expansion with a new UK office. Mark Donkin will lead the office as Managing Director to further grow Genius' global presence and better serve customers in the UK.
Genius helps B2B marketers qualify, identify and connect with their best prospects via powerful, yet easy-to-use automated marketing solutions including lead management, demand generation, nurturing and email marketing.
"Establishing a physical presence in the UK is an exciting milestone for the company. We have seen early success in the UK with big brand customers like British Telecom and Claranet, making it a natural location for our international expansion," said Sam Weber, CEO of Genius.com. "Mark is an entrepreneur who has extensive enterprise software experience particularly in aligning marketing and sales, making him an ideal candidate to head the office, manage our UK customers and expand our presence. We are thrilled to have him on board."
"As in the US, UK marketers are faced with increasing demands to showcase their impact on the bottom line. There is a tremendous need for sophisticated marketing tools that are easy to use, intuitive and can show quick time to value," said Mark Donkin, Managing Director, Genius.com. "Genius fills this void. It is a unique offering in that customers can create the marketing solution that fits their particular needs, whether it is a small business interested in our free offering or a large brand looking for full-blown automated marketing solutions. There is a lot of opportunity for Genius in the UK and I am looking forward to our continued expansion."

In 2004, Mark set up Salespush Ltd, a web-based Sales Management Solution, in response to a gap in the market for a cost effective solution to manage and track sales processes. In addition to high profile enterprise customers using the product, Mark also launched a free version of the solution with over 2000 companies signing up within the first year.
