Allconnect, a company that helps consumers evaluate and order home services, has closed on new financing and has a new CEO.
Mark Miller, a former president and chief operating officer of Equifax, took over as the firm’s chief executive last month.
Allconnect raised $10 million in new financing from Maveron LLC.
“Mark Miller’s experience with travel distribution, call centers, and consumer marketing and information services hit the bull’s eye,” said Lee Pritchard, founder and vice chairman of Allconnect.
Miller has also worked as president and CEO of Galileo International, which is part of Cendant.
“Allconnect has built an extensive network of utility partners and home service providers and has gained significant traction in the $80 billion market for new home services,” Miller said in a statement. “Through Allconnect’s strategic alliances with utility providers, the company is uniquely positioned to expand into new markets, add new services, and broaden its consumer base.”
The company was founded by Pritchard in 1998. It raised $14 million in venture capital in 2000 and raised another $18 million later.
“Allconnect represents the next generation of home services marketing, providing a valuable free service that consumers love and a cost-effective customer acquisition channel for the companies that serve them,” said Debra Somberg, general partner, Maveron LLC, in a statement. “Garnering the interest and commitment of an executive of Mark Miller’s caliber underscores the power of Allconnect’s unique model and its current leadership position in the market. We look forward to working with Mark and the team to expand the company’s reach and service offering.”
