I am thrilled to announce that Mike Linton has joined the B-Stock Solutions Advisory Board. Mike is a world-class marketer with extraordinary experience in retail, consumer products and e-commerce. We are very fortunate to have Mike involved in our business and look forward to the contributions he will make in the coming years.

Mike and I worked at eBay at the same time and, although we did not work together very closely, I have always had enormous respect for his knowledge and experience. He clearly understands marketing like few others. In addition, his deep experience in our target markets of retail and consumer product manufacturing gives him a unique perspective on our business. He understands the liquidation challenges facing retailers and manufacturers from an insiders perspective. As we continue to add major brick and mortar and e-commerce retailers to our customer list, Mike’s views on how we can create even more value for them will be increasingly valuable.

Mike’s most recent experience was as eBay’s Chief Marketing Officer. He joined eBay after 7 years as the first Chief Marketing Officer, and EVP, for Best Buy. He is a charter member of the Marketing-50, was elected to the Retail Advertising Hall of Fame in 2008 and was named by Ad Age as one of the most influential 30 marketers in 2003, 2004 and 2005. He is currently writing articles on marketing for Forbes that you can (and should) find here.

Mike’s full bio is available on our Advisors page and is worth a read.
