The Mobile Marketing Association this morning unveiled its new board of directors, electing 17 top consumer marketers (see below), and capping off the trade association’s “five-year transformation,” according to CEO Greg Stuart.
“Over the last few years the MMA has spent millions of dollars to better understand and define modern marketing as well as create brand new knowledge for pioneering marketers to accelerate their innovation and build enduring business growth,” Stuart stated in the announcement.
While the list of returning board members still is dominated by supply-side media executives, the new board accomplishes Stuart’s long-term goal of reshaping the MMA’s focus to serve consumer marketers first.
