“NextMark is modernizing the direct marketing process,” said Mr. Spiegel. “Over the years, I have bought millions of names and have seen how mailing lists affect the profitability of marketing campaigns. More recently, I’ve seen how NextMark helps its clients to get the best mailing lists and the best results. Now, they are striving to better integrate the lists with the rest of the marketing process. I joined NextMark’s board to help them reach this ambitious goal.”

NextMark’s shareholders recently voted to expand its board of directors from six to seven members to accommodate Mr. Spiegel and to extend the terms of all incumbent board members:

“Ted is a great addition to NextMark’s board,” commented Joseph Pych. “He brings a treasure trove of real-world experience from his days at Spiegel and from solving all kinds of marketing problems for his clients. He also brings a compelling vision for the future of direct marketing. We are fortunate to have Ted on our team.”
