"As I look ahead, it is clear to me that user engagement is becoming the vital factor for the success of all cloud and Web-based technologies. I came to Badgeville to accelerate its rapid growth, empowering the world's largest companies to increase customer loyalty and employee productivity."

"Badgeville has experienced record growth in one of the fastest growing categories in enterprise software. Ken brings a unique ability to align vision and strategy with world-class operational excellence to help us realize our mission," Duggan said in a statement.
