Ad offer network Offerpal has named Mihir Shah as its new CEO. Former CEO George Garrick will now serve as Offerpal's Executive Chairman. Garrick himself replaced Offerpal's founding CEO, Anu Shukla, in October 2009. Shukla later departed the company. Garrick spent his tenure as Offerpal's CEO trying to repair the company's reputation, which was damaged by an expose (called ScamVille) that pointed out misleading and fraudulent ad offers running on Offerpal's network.
"I am honored to lead Offerpal during this exciting time," said Shah, in a press statement. "The social and mobile gaming spaces are in a transitional and converging period right now, and we have some exciting ideas for using our extensive footprint and expertise to help game developers, social platforms and online advertisers navigate the changing environment. I look forward to working with the entire Offerpal and Tapjoy teams as we continue to find innovative ways to meet our customers' evolving needs."
