Michael Zammuto is the co-founder and CEO of Completed.com. Zammuto has built a team of experts in online branding, reviews and promotion and believes that all business should be a meritocracy. Zammuto says that the Completed.com mission is to see great people get the recognition they deserve for doing great work and to see that everyone gets feedback that will help them develop professionally. Zammuto and his team report that Completed.com was built to be the platform for business professionals to rate and review each other and to receive verified, constructive feedback. With proprietary processes and tools to combat trolls, Completed.com focuses on making you and those around you grow and succeed. Michael Zammuto feels that online reviews are incredibly valuable to making good decisions and to getting important feedback. But the process is broken, leading to untrusted user-generated content, spam and bullying. So Zammuto's team of researchers rethought the process of identifying yourself and creating reviews and built a trust-based scoring system that used multiple levels of technology plus people-powered verifications to solve those problems.
