Expanded executive team to drive strategy and accelerate growth for family of marketing technology brands
NASHVILLE, TENN. - March 7, 2019
CM Group — a family of marketing technology companies including Campaign Monitor, Delivra, Emma, Liveclicker and Sailthru — today announced the appointments of Tom Janofsky to chief technology officer (CTO) and Mike Vantusko to chief financial officer (CFO). Janofsky and Vantusko will serve on the company’s executive leadership team and oversee all five brands.
Prior to joining CM Group, Janofsky spent more than 20 years building technology products and teams at startups and fast-growing companies. He most recently served as the executive vice president of engineering at recently acquired Sailthru, where he was responsible for the engineering, product, technical support and data science teams. In this role, Janofsky led his teams to consistently deliver on key product roadmap destinations and customer requests, leading to significant gains in the company’s net promoter score (NPS). He has also held roles at Blackfynn and Monetate.
“It is an honor to join the executive leadership team at CM Group, especially after I saw first-hand how the company invests in technology innovation and development during my time with Sailthru, which was acquired by this very group,” said Tom Janofsky, CTO of CM Group. “At CM Group we have five very different, progressive technologies, giving me the unique and exciting opportunity to oversee all of them and contribute to their evolution as they interact in the marketplace.”
Before joining CM Group, Vantusko spent 35 years building his financial, strategic and operational expertise at both public and private companies. He most recently served as the CFO of Achieve3000, where he played a vital role in implementing the company’s strategic plan. He has also held CFO positions for private equity sponsored companies at MRI Software and Rakuten/OverDrive.
“It’s an exciting time to join CM Group. The family of brands is fast becoming the go-to for marketers at businesses of all sizes and industries,” said Mike Vantusko, CFO of CM Group. “I look forward to working alongside senior leadership in helping to steer the company’s rapid growth toward becoming one of the most well-respected and ubiquitous marketing technology companies.”
“Both Tom and Mike are rare finds when it comes to experience and leadership ability. It’s clear that they also embody the values of our quickly growing family of brands,” said Wellford Dillard, CEO of CM Group. “I am confident that Tom and Mike will lead the technology and finance departments with grace, by providing the strategic guidance needed to their team members and the entire family of brands.”
This leadership expansion comes after CM Group’s acquisitions of both Liveclicker and Sailthru, as well as a new corporate name uniting the family of marketing technology companies.
