Klosebuy Announces Board of Advisors

Klosebuy Inc. announced the members of its Board of Advisors for the award-winning digital marketing, communications, and loyalty platform.

“To announce such a strong leadership team of experts to help carry our vision is such an honor.”  said Frank Fennell, President & CEO.  Klosebuy is a distributed marketing platform that links a community by connecting local businesses to the residents.  “During the course of my career, I have strived to surround myself with the smartest and most experienced people possible. I always set the bar high; however, the Advisors that we have assembled significantly exceeded my expectations.”

Board of Advisors:  Jan Rogers Kniffen (former SVP Finance & Treasurer at May Company & Board Chair), John Ebann (EVP Universal Meridian & Secretary), Cary Ichter (Managing Partner Ichter Davis LLC & Legal), Charmaine Tang (Sr. Client Strategist BNY Mellon), Cicely Simpson (Founder & CEO, Summit Public Affairs), Duncan Bureau (previously Air Canada Rouge President), Preston Edmondson (Managing Partner at Trinity Fund Partners), Mark McClellan (previously Dunkin’ Brands VP Development East), and Hap Brakeley (previous Americas Chief Growth Officer at dentsu).

In today’s environment, businesses need additional tools to engage current customers while attracting new customers as well. The moment a business is added to the Klosebuy platform, they instantly receive a web and mobile app presence. The local consumers can then find the business, see their advertisements, earn points, and share offers on social media with a single touch. With Klosebuy’s digital marketing and loyalty program, engaging local customers has never been easier or more affordable.

Klosebuy offers professionally managed subscriptions as well as a self-service option.

With a Klosebuy subscription, the geo-located business can engage customers through push messages, emails, and loyalty rewards. The business receives instant analytics on their custom advertisements with first-party data. This allows the business to adjust messaging and amplify their communication with their targeted customer. There is no need for hardware or integration with Klosebuy; therefore, businesses can easily engage with their entire local community immediately.

Jan Rogers Kniffen said, “I am very excited to Chair the Board for Klosebuy. Shoppers want to buy locally. They want to support their local community. They want to feel like the store that they are shopping in is their store. Klosebuy makes all of that possible and accessible at a very affordable price for the hometown retailer.”

“Having known and worked with Frank Fennell for 20+ years, I am excited to work with Klosebuy and his extremely capable team. Klosebuy is going to disrupt the loyalty space with a powerful platform that allows locally owned, operated, or franchised businesses to take advantage of a loyalty solution that will deliver revenue results and enhance customer relationship solutions at a fraction of the cost versus building it themselves. This is a shop local effort that will contribute to the rebuilding of communities and entrepreneurs in America,” stated Duncan Bureau.
