Cision Introduces a New Search Tool, Loses European CEO

Cision has introduced the Social Influencer Search, a new keyword search tool that allows users to seek out social media posts and blogs on a specific topic. Information can be further sorted by location, beat, and other categories. Users will also be able to identify the most influential reporters on the keyword topic and gather contact info and background information.

The company also announced that its European CEO, Yann Blandy, is leaving the company at the end of Q2 to become the CEO of Intellecta, a science and technology educational resource company. He’s been with the company for six years. In a statement, the company says it will have a replacement by the time of Blandy’s departure.

Just a couple of weeks ago, it was announced that North American CEO Joe Bernardo was leaving the company.
