Patrick Seaman has been promoted to a dual role as Chief Strategy Officer, Cinsay, Inc. & Executive Vice President, Cinsay International, and Stan Woodward has been named to COO, Cinsay, Inc. Seaman joined Cinsay as Chief Operations Officer in January of 2011, where he has overseen operations at the eCommerce technology company. Prior to joining Cinsay as EVP of Operations, Woodward held various leadership positions with distance learning companies and was the CEO of Reflect Systems prior to serving as Vice President, Business and Enterprise Services at Yahoo! and earlier broadcast.com.

Cinsay, Inc. was recently named to Forbes’ List of the 100 Most Promising Companies, and the firm has thus far raised over $47 million in private equity and institutional funding. With increasing international interest in Cinsay’s Smart Container™ technology and complete eCommerce solutions, the Company has expanded operations significantly.
Cinsay’s patent pending Smart Container™ technology platform uses proprietary intelligent internet objects, which appear as video players and can be shared across the web and other connected networks and mobile devices. The smart containers can be configured in a variety of ways to address the entire value chain of online marketing and shopping — including impressions, clicks, lead generation and transactions. One of the most appealing forms of media for sales and shopping is video, which provides a life-like representation and creates richer product browsing and/or shopping experiences.
Stan Woodward was CTO of GoKnow Mobile Learning, CEO of LTF, and CEO and founder of Reflect Systems, Inc. immediately prior to joining Cinsay. Prior to that, he served as Vice President, Business and Enterprise Services for Yahoo!. From 1997 to 2000, Woodward was Vice President of Business and Enterprise Services at broadcast.com. While at broadcast.com, annual revenues of the company’s business-to-business broadcasting services grew 161%, accounting for 70% of broadcast.com’s total revenues prior to its acquisition by Yahoo. Woodward sits on the board of Austin College, in Sherman, Texas, the National Foundation for Teaching Entrepreneurship (NFTE), Tixie, and several other non-profit advisory boards. He holds a B.S. degree in Electrical Engineering from Oklahoma State University.
Cinsay, Inc. is headquartered in Austin, Texas with offices in Dallas and Los Angeles. The company offers comprehensive social commerce services that include social media, marketing, video eCommerce solutions, and SaaS.
