Chatmeter’s Founder and former CEO, Collin Holmes, will continue to play an active role as a Board member.
Chatmeter is an industry leader in leveraging its AI-powered platform to help multi-location businesses create positive customer experiences and deliver ROI across the organization – from local managers to the C-suite.

With an accomplished background in scaling technology companies, Mazur brings decades of experience to the position. He joins Chatmeter from CoStar Group, where he was President of Residential, responsible for its marketplace business since 2020. Previously, Mazur was CEO of Homesnap, which he helped build into a market leader before selling it to CoStar Group for $250M in 2020. Mazur has also held roles as CRO at Belly, a SaaS-based customer loyalty company, and ReachLocal, an online marketing solutons provider, where he was the CEO of the European Division and helped build from start-up to over $100M in revenue, eventually going public in 2010. Mazur holds an MBA from Columbia Business School.

I am confident that John's experience will propel this innovation forward and deliver tremendous value to our customers.”
“I am thrilled to join the Chatmeter team as we continue to deliver innovative solutions to our customers, both domestically and abroad,” said Mazur. “With 80-90% of customers' conversations residing in unstructured data spanning thousands of digital places, AI—specifically natural language processing, machine learning, and generative AI—has never been more critical to understanding feedback, responding to needs, and nurturing loyalty. We believe that Chatmeter is well positioned to elevate brand intelligence as a critical piece of customer engagement and I look forward to supporting the team as we help our clients fully leverage the power of AI.”
