LOS ANGELES, Jan. 10, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Pyte, a data collaboration solutions provider, today introduced the Pyte Marketing Advisory Board. Composed of marketing and advertising leaders who have held leadership roles at Google, Facebook/Meta, and Nielsen, the Pyte Marketing Advisory Board will oversee the development and implementation of Pyte’s customer data collaboration solutions.

“Today’s marketers face a variety of challenges in gathering the customer data needed to run effective campaigns, with the phasing out of third-party cookies, technology platforms limiting user tracking, and increased privacy regulations around obtaining and storing customer data,” said Sadegh Riazi, founder and CEO of Pyte. “Pyte is focused on helping marketers overcome these challenges, providing them with a secure and compliant solution to enrich customer data through collaborations with external data partners. The Pyte Marketing Advisory Board will play an essential role in informing Pyte’s product development, as well as providing guidance to marketers across industries on how they can more effectively leverage data from external partners in their campaigns.”
