Angie's List Adds Another Board Member

Posted: Updated:

Indianapolis-based Angie's List (Nasdaq: ANGI) has expanded its board of directors once again. Mike Sands, chief executive officer of Illinois-based marketing firm Signal, joins three other board members added earlier this month.

The company previously announced TCS Capital Management LLC Founder Eric Semler was joining the board along with media and technology industry veterans George Bell and Tom Evans.

"We are thrilled to welcome this technology and digital marketing veteran to the Board," said Scott Durchslag, president and CEO of Angie's List. "Since I’ve joined the company we’ve had a search underway to round out our Board with additional top technology and operating talent from some of the best companies in the world. Mike brings precisely these skills and expertise."

The addition of Sands brings the Angie's List Board to 12 directors. The company says Sands will serve as a Class II director.

"I am pleased to be joining the Angie’s List Board at a time of great opportunity and change for the Company," said Sands. "Angie’s List has set the bar for delivering great experiences between consumers and service providers in the home services space. With the strategic shift to open the paywall, the opportunity for long-term growth is even greater. I look forward to working with Scott and the team to build upon the Company’s progress as it embarks on this exciting new direction."

Last month, Durschlag announced Angie's List had reached its first-ever full-year profit.
