Peanut Labs sales chief Sean Case to depart this week

North America People

US— Peanut Labs’ senior vice president of sales and client service Sean Case is to leave the business this week without a job to go to. He has been with the company for more than three-and-a-half years.

Case’s departure follows the acquisition of Peanut Labs by E-Rewards/Research Now in October. He said there was no senior role for him in the organisation post-takeover.

In recent years Case has been overseeing the expansion of the San Francisco-based company into European and Asian markets. Its business is built around recruiting survey respondents via social media and online games, and offering virtual currency in exchange for survey completes.

Case spent three years as a general manager at GMI prior to Peanut Labs and began his career in account management and sales roles at MCI Worldcom and AT&T.
