Thompson started Genius.com with a mission to apply the same instant-on approach of WebEx to powerful but accessible marketing technology and analytics. Thompson’s co-founder, Robert Seidl, is a pioneer in innovation, ease-of-use and technology. Previously, Seidl founded Ceneca Software, which developed PageMill, the first visual web page editor.
