BOULDER, CO—June 9, 2009—Sandra Zoratti, VP of Global Marketing Solutions for InfoPrint, the joint venture between IBM and Ricoh, has been appointed to the CMO (Chief Marketing Officer) Council North America’s Advisory Board.
Zoratti’s appointment underlines InfoPrint’s commitment to driving thought leadership and best practices around the adoption of innovative personalized marketing techniques to enhance customer loyalty and optimize marketing ROI.

The research will highlight new, creative ways marketers can use retention marketing programs including rewards, loyalty, perk and points programs to engage and grow customers and advocates, a critical mandate for survival in today’s tough economy. Getting a Business Lift from Loyalty will audit and assess the operations and innovation in loyalty club programs as well as gain a deep understanding of the value and utilization of customer data to drive response rates and top line growth.
“I am delighted to be appointed to the CMO Council’s board, as it provides us with the opportunity to gather insights from leaders in the marketing field as we work together to drive the industry in delivering more targeted, personalized information across all communications channels,” said Zoratti. “Our solutions are industry-proven as an effective way to drive customer loyalty and improve efficiency in our current economy.
