Definitive Media Group (DMG) announced the formation of the Performance-Driven Marketing Institute (PDMI) this week.
The Performance-Driven Marketing Institute, a new professional association led by direct response marketing veterans John Yarrington, Thomas Haire, and Bill Sheehan, is “dedicated to promoting, protecting and advancing its membership through education, networking and marketing, and advocacy,” according to DMG’s press release, issued on Mon., July 16, 2018.
As these events unfolded, there was a lot of speculation about what it meant for the future of the direct response marketing industry.
DMG clearly stated its intent this week to take the lead and propel the industry forward into a next era of marketing.
As a direct-to-consumer fulfillment leader, Thill Inc. is excited about the opportunity to work with PDMI and this new generation of leadership.
“The Performance-Driven Marketing Institute will play an integral role for key players like Thill Inc. in the direct-to-consumer space by advocating on behalf of the industry, fostering collaboration, and contributing to the growth of small businesses,” stated R. Todd Thill, President & COO of Thill Inc. “We’re looking forward to supporting the organization and its leadership in its efforts to take the direct-to-consumer industry to the next level.”
