ReachLocal Names Two Executives

Woodland Hills-based ReachLocal said Monday that it has named two new executives, hiring Paras Maniar as the company's new Chief Strategy Officer, and Megan Opp as the company's new Chief People Officer. Maniar was most recently a venture capitalist at WPSChallenger, managing that fund's venture investments in North America; he also had been at EQAL (before the startup's acquisition by Everyday Health), and served at McKinsey and Company. Opp was previously Senior Vice President of Human Resources for Conversant. The new hires come as ReachLocal has been building up a new executive team, headed by new CEO Sharon Rowlands.
