Alexandria-based Fishbowl has a new big fish in its pond.
Yet, Soss made it clear that the STG acquisition was not just another case of the big fish eating the smaller. “My opportunity as the new CEO is to leverage the support and investment from our partners at Symphony Technology Group in order to broaden and deepen the scope of the Fishbowl strategy, not change it,” said Soss.
Fishbowl was founded more than 17 years ago by Scott Shaw, a partner with Alexandria Restaurant Partners, the group that manages The Majestic and Virtue Feed & Grain, among others.
The company, which focuses on marketing automation and analytics for restaurant chains, also recently announced the formation of an internal innovation council to concentrate on engagement with millennial customers, according to a press release.
Soss replaces Dev Ganesan, who led the company since October, 2014.
