Peter Ashkin, and two others, to join the board of 250ok
Email analytics and deliverability company 250ok announces the election of Peter Ashkin, Patrick Meenan and Tim McQuillen to the company’s board of directors.
“Our new board members bring decades of proven experience from some of the biggest names in technology,” said Greg Kraios, 250ok founder and CEO. “Their guidance is instrumental in furthering our growth and aggressive plans to innovate within what has become a stagnant email industry.”
Peter Ashkin, 250ok’s new chairman, is the president of Ashkin Consulting and previously held senior management positions at companies including Apple, Toshiba and AOL.
“As an early investor and longtime advisor of 250ok, it’s an honor to serve in an increased capacity during this critical stage of the business,” said Ashkin. “We’re all very excited to contribute to the company’s continued growth.”
250ok board member Patrick Meenan is a partner at Arthur Ventures, who recently invested $2.6M in 250ok’s 2017 Series A funding round.
"250ok’s vision for the future of messaging is something we believe could fundamentally reshape how email is managed,” said Meenan, who previously served on Microsoft’s acquisition and investments team.
Longtime advertising and email technology veteran Tim McQuillen, the former co-founder of StrongMail Systems and CIO at Rubicon Project, also joins the 250ok board of directors.
“Greg successfully built a world-class team and product that is dead set on improving the relationship between brands and subscribers,” said McQuillen. “I fully expect 250ok will continue to deliver on that promise.”
250ok launched in 2011 with the goal of reinventing the toolkit required for success in the modern email landscape. Today, 250ok powers a growing number of businesses like Adobe, eHarmony, Furniture Row, Marketo and SendGrid who need to cut through the big data noise and provide actionable, real-time analytics to maximize email performance.
