“We are thrilled to have a thought leader like Bander join the Eye Square family,” said Michael Schiessl, Founder and CEO. “As one of the first to bring Neuromarketing to the mainstream back in 2008 and introduce the world to the first online eye tracking solution in 2011, Bander’s reputation speaks for itself. We are eager to leverage his unique talents and insight as more companies transition from simulated to LIVE digital testing. We’re honored to have a brilliant mind like his join our board.”
In his new role as Chief Revenue Officer, Bander will open Eye Square’s first U.S.-based office in New York City, NY, introducing the company’s services to the American market.

He has also worked as a senior sales executive for Cox Interactive and the BellSouth Advertising & Publishing Corporation.
“What drew me to Eye Square was their unique ability to conduct market research testing in a LIVE environment on both desktops and mobile phones,” Bander said. “This is game changing as all other market research companies test static images online. Eye Square is also a leader in combining proprietary implicit research with explicit and psychology; essentially, this means we can glean profound quantitative and qualitative data as to what people experience and what ultimately drives them.”
