"In an integrated marketing environment, the 'mail moment' continues to be critical and profitable," said Gary Skidmore, president, Harte-Hanks Direct Marketing. "With thousands of advertising messages received each day across all channels, the precious few that are in the mailbox represent a crucial touch. Our clients know this, and so does Tony. It's multichannel marketing that fuels the deepest insights and drives the best results, and mail remains a vital part of the media mix."

"Joining Harte-Hanks, which long has been synonymous with postal and logistics expertise and intelligence, is exciting for me. Those attributes will continue and grow here. So does our understanding and leadership as an integrated multichannel marketing company. Fostering the 'mail moment' is critical for brands. Ensuring on-time delivery, a welcome moment for consumers and businesses at the mailbox, supply chain best practices and transportation optimization, we're applying insight to create results in all of these areas. I'm proud to be part of the Harte-Hanks team."
