David Brussin is Founder & CEO of Monetate, Inc. which has quickly become the leading independent provider of testing, targeting, and personalization for major eCommerce websites. A serial entrepreneur with over 15 years experience in eCommerce and technology, David was recently named to the SmartCEO 100 and was earlier honored as one of the world's 100 top young innovators by MIT's Technology Review.


In 1996, David co-founded and served as Vice President of Technology for InfoSec Labs, a firm that helped Fortune 1000 companies embrace eCommerce without compromising security. David helped clients meet the technical challenges of doing business online and enabled numerous large brick-and-mortar enterprises to transform themselves into agile and respected eCommerce players who enjoy the trust and loyalty of their customers. InfoSec Labs was acquired in 1999 by Rainbow Technologies, now part of SafeNet, the world's third largest information security company.


David then co-founded and served as Chief Technology Officer for ePrivacy Group, Inc., focusing on the challenges of growing and protecting email marketing. David created products to help email marketers increase response and conversion by protecting their trusted relationship with consumers.


In January 2004, David co-founded TurnTide, Inc. around the patented anti-spam router technology he had invented. As Chief Technology Officer, David also managed engineering and technical operations at TurnTide, which was acquired by Symantec six months later.


Finding many eCommerce challenges still unmet, particularly in the area of website testing and personalization, David founded Monetate in 2008 to develop and deliver innovative technology that solves these problems. Major eCommerce companies like QVC and Urban Outfitters now use Monetate to make the most of their online marketing dollars and optimize their website investments.


David is active in the technology start-up community and served on the board of directors of Invite Media which was recently acquired by Google. A published author, David is also a sought-after speaker on eCommerce, entrepreneurship and technology.
