Gregory, who most recently was VP of revenue at Spotify, also previously worked at Google.

Among Quixey’s recent projects is an app for Microsoft that lets potential Windows Phone converts see which of their Android apps are available on Redmond’s phone software.

In addition to Gregory, Quixey earlier this year hired former Zynga executive Guru Gowrappan to serve as executive VP of products. Over the past two years, the company has gone from five employees to 70, and is now handling 100 million queries per month.
