250ok adds three high-profile members to board of directors.


Today marks another exciting day as 250ok announces the election of Peter Ashkin, Patrick Meenan, and Tim McQuillen to the company’s board of directors.

“Our new board members bring decades of proven experience from some of the biggest names in technology,” said Greg Kraios, 250ok founder and CEO. “Their guidance is instrumental in furthering our growth and aggressive plans to innovate within what has become a stagnant email industry.”

Peter Ashkin of Ashkin Consulting
Peter Ashkin, 250ok’s new chairman, is the President of Ashkin Consulting and previously held senior management positions at companies including Apple, Toshiba, and AOL. “As an early investor and longtime advisor of 250ok, it’s an honor to serve in an increased capacity during this critical stage of the business,” said Ashkin. “We’re all very excited to contribute to the company’s continued growth.”

Patrick Meena of Arthur Ventures
250ok board member Patrick Meenan is a partner at Arthur Ventures, which recently invested $2.6M in 250ok’s 2017 Series A funding round. “250ok’s vision for the future of messaging is something we believe could fundamentally reshape how email is managed,” said Meenan, who previously served on Microsoft’s acquisition and investments team.

Tim McQuillen of StrongMail
Longtime advertising and email technology veteran Tim McQuillen, the former co-founder of StrongMail Systems and CIO at Rubicon Project, also joins the 250ok Board. “Greg successfully built a world-class team and product that is dead set on improving the relationship between brands and subscribers,” said McQuillen. “I fully expect 250ok will continue to deliver on that promise.”

Today, 250ok powers a growing number of businesses like Adobe, eHarmony, Furniture Row, Marketo, and SendGrid, who need to cut through the big data noise and provide actionable, real-time analytics to maximize email performance.
