Email Experience Council Announces Roundtable and Advisory Committee Chair Election Results
August 22, 2008 — The Email Experience Council (eec), the email marketing arm of the Direct Marketing Association (DMA), yesterday announced the 2008 Member Roundtables and Advisory Committee chair election results.
“The Email Experience Council’s recent growth and success did not stem from just one person’s efforts, but are the results of the collective efforts, passion, and dedication of the community,” said Jeanniey Mullen, eec founder and executive vice president and chief marketing officer of Zinio and VIVmag. “The email marketing community is fortunate to have an active membership that continuously steps forward to donate their time and energy. With their help, the eec has become a force, and the leaders of our roundtables and advisory committees drive that force forward. I am pleased to invite the new group of leaders into the heart of the eec as they continue our focus of enhancing email marketing and communications.”
DMA Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer Ramesh Lakshmi-Ratan, Ph.D., said, “The members of the roundtables and committees bring to the eec impressive talent and a solid and varied list of accomplishments. We very much appreciate their generosity of time and commitment to helping the eec as it works to advance email as a powerful marketing and business communications channel.”
