Jeff Magnusson is the CEO of Playerize, a Vancouver and San Francisco-based company that manages a worldwide growth and monetization platform for game developers and advertisers. He and his co-founder Lyal Avery have grown Playerize to reach more than 600 million impressions a month and just over 25 employees, completing their first acquisition in 2012 of Super Rewards, an industry leader.

Prior to Playerize, Jeff was the COO of social game studio dimeRocker, consulted with several non-profits on their social engagement strategies, and served as a mentor to a number of Canadian startups.  After founding his first company at age 20, an online payment processor, Jeff bootstrapped it through ten years of growth and into a successful exit in 2008.
