“PK4 Media’s XPS platform greatly simplifies the complex process of delivering the right message to the right person at the right time and through the right channel,” said Smoot. “The platform was built with the future in mind and can easily be expanded to accommodate any new form of digital messaging or delivery channel. I’m excited to continue providing advice for technological growth.”
Barlow brings more than 20 years of legal experience and 15 years of counsel and secretary experience serving the Board of Directors of publicly-traded companies. Barlow’s main role on the PK4 Media Advisory Board will be to advise in corporate operations.
For 15 years, Barlow served as the Executive Vice President & General Counsel with Conversant, Inc., negotiating more than 14 mergers and acquisitions which eventually led to the company’s $2.3 billion acquisition by Alliance Data Systems Corporation in December of 2014. Prior to that he was Vice President & General Counsel with Mediaplex, Inc. and helped lead Mediaplex’s IPO process in 1999. Barlow currently serves on a variety of technology start-up Boards and Advisory Boards.
“The team at PK4 Media has done a great job bootstrapping the company and building a phenomenal product with limitless potential for future expansion,” said Barlow. “I’m looking forward to helping the team continue growing and moving the company forward.”
