Jim Meyer, Vice President and General Manager, eTrigue Corporation Jim Meyer of eTrigue speaks to the topic of Marketing Automation – and specifically what capabilities exist for direct support of lead flow.
Informative, educational, vendor neutral. But he’ll also get pretty passionate about how organizations fail to use the tools correctly, and fail to gain any real value.
Jim is a veteran Silicon Valley technology operating and marketing executive with experience building and managing breakout technology companies. Prior to eTrigue, Jim co-founded Aleron where he helped build the Ultrawideband (UWB) industry, including the founding of WiMedia, an industry alliance. Before this, Jim was a pioneer in the development of UWB technology at Fantasma Networks, one of the first silicon startups targeting high data rate, short range wireless solutions. Jim has held leadership positions at Broadlogic, Adaptec and Hyundai Electronics America.
