Palo Alto, Calif. – 7 Degrees, a Palo Alto-based developer of social business tools, said on Monday it has changed its name to Reachable and named Al Campa as CEO.
Campa most recently was the CMO and senior vice president at Taleo, and previously was the founder and CEO of Jaspersoft. He also has also held senior positions at Actuate, Sybase and Sun Microsystems.
Reachable’s social business application under the same name (formerly known as PeopleMaps) allows users to leverage all of their contacts to expand their professional networks. The app consolidates contacts from social networking sites, email clients and other public data sources, and adds new ones from its database of 65 million professionals.
The latest news comes 10 months after the company closed a $6.8 million round of funding co-led by Rho Ventures, vSpring Capital and Parkview Ventures.
