"With an aligned brand focused agenda, the Board can help marketers better integrate mobile to reach new heights in how they meaningfully connect with consumers along the purchase funnel."

"I am delighted to serve on the Mobile Marketing Association's Executive Marketer Advisory Board with an incredible group of global brand leaders," said John Costello, Chief Global Marketing and Innovation Officer for Dunkin' Brands. "At Dunkin' Brands, we recognize that consumers are increasingly reliant on their mobile devices and mobile marketing has become a vital part of our integrated marketing mix to deepen the connection we have with people who make Dunkin' Donuts and Baskin-Robbins part of their daily lives around the globe. I look forward to working with the Board to help advance the industry and drive adoption of effective mobile marketing."

The MMA Executive Marketer Advisory Board will work to identify areas of opportunities through various initiatives and research that will influence how marketers invest in mobile and capitalize on emerging platforms and technology.
