Bazaarvoice, an online customer ratings and review service that went public last February, has appointed Stephen Collins as its new CEO. Collins, who has been the company’s CFO since 2010, succeeds company cofounder Brett Hurt, who has been CEO since Bazaarvoice’s 2005 inception. Bazaarvoice has also acquired the vertical ad media Longboard Media for roughly $27 million. Longboard, founded in 2008, had raised $6 million from investors.
