MyArea Network Welcomes Two New Investors and Board Members
MyArea Network is excited and proud to announce that the company has acquired two new investors and board members; board director, advisor and investor, Jamie Egasti and business leader and entrepreneur, Tony DiBenedetto.
About Jamie Egasti
With extensive experience as a consumer marketing innovator, Jamie Egasti is a great addition to the MyArea Network board. The strategic leadership veteran served as the CEO of Catalina Marketing and the Folgers Coffee Company.
He spent 30 years at Procter & Gamble where he led the creation, launch and global expansion of major new brands including Febreze and Swiffer. He currently serves on the board of directors of three different companies and will bring all of that experience and expertise to the MyArea Network brand.
“I am delighted to be working with Scott and MyArea as they deliver a technology platform that changes the game for local media,” says Egasti.
About Tony DiBenedetto
Tony DiBenedetto, a 30-year executive, has been cultivating his expertise in strategic direction and development in eight different business ventures. He was the CEO of TriBridge, a technology company, for 19 years.
This forward-thinking entrepreneur is also on the board of several other businesses. With one of his specialties being high-impact growth, there is no doubt his addition as an investor will catapult MyArea Network into long-lasting success.
DiBenedetto loves entrepreneurship and believes in the mission of MyArea Network.
He was particularly impressed with Scott Conlon, President & CEO of the company saying, “Scott has the passion for his company that I was looking as an investor. If you have passion everything is good. That’s where success comes from. It’s the secret sauce and Scott has it.”
Bringing Experience and Insight to the Table
MyArea Network is thrilled to bring these two new business leaders on as investors and advisors. “Both Jamie and Tony bring a level of talent, expertise and energy to the table,” says Scott Conlon, President & CEO of MyArea Network.
“We’re fortunate that they believe in what we do and will be by our side as we continue to strengthen our community ties and expansion efforts,” Colon went on.
