New Orleans-based Lucid is a marketplace for buyers and sellers of sample, data, and insights collected through surveys and cross-media measurement.

Todd Saypoff, former chief financial officer at Shazam, joins the team as CFO. He was also previously at Viacom and NBC in finance roles.

“As we hire senior talent to help scale the business, Lucid welcomes Todd to oversee the finance team in its substantial period of growth and expansion into APAC,” said Lucid CEO Patrick Comer. “With Todd’s experience in developing and executing strategic plans, M&A, and private accounting, he will drive financial planning for Lucid’s future growth across the globe.”
