Pulin Thakkar
Founder & CEO

Pulin founded Marketly after working over 10 years as a Software Engineer at Microsoft, where he developed a range of technologies, built large-scale server infrastructures, designed intuitive user experiences, and was a recognized inventor on more than a dozen patents.

Upon observing the rapidly emerging threat of piracy and counterfeiting via the Internet, and the lack of effective solutions in the marketplace, he set out to leverage his expertise to address the problem. From the outset, his vision has been to build a different kind of brand protection company — one that uses online monitoring and enforcement designed to maximize business impact. Today, that vision is being realized, with the world’s top brands in both digital and physical product categories achieving substantial results using Marketly’s solutions.

Pulin earned an MBA in Technology Management from University of Washington and an MS degree in Computer Science from USC, in Los Angeles, CA.

Bill Freund
VP of Sales & Marketing

Bill has spent most of his career leading marketing and business development at VC-backed start-ups, including one of the first SaaS companies (acquired), one of the first online market intelligence companies (acquired), and one of the first consumer product incubators, which developed and launched a broad portfolio of innovations sold through top retailers. In his spare time, he has developed and launched some of his own inventions, and served on the Board of the United Inventors Association of America. He received his MBA from Harvard Business School (which purchased his first information system while he was a student). You can read his latest article in Intellectual Property Magazine here.
