LOUISVILLE, Ky., March 17, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- LogicMark, Inc. (NASDAQ: LGMK), provider of PERS health communications devices and IoT technology for the care economy, today announces the appointment of John Pettitt to the company's Board of Directors. Pettitt brings nearly 40 years of experience in e-commerce, and content distribution and protection to LogicMark. He has been granted multiple foundational technology patents, established the first commercial non-academic Internet connection in the U.K., and has had four successful founder exits.
John's deep experience in multiple technology domains will provide invaluable insights as we growTweet this
Two of his companies, Beyond and CyberSource, had successful IPOs. During his time at CyberSource, Pettitt focused on building out an early credit card fraud detection system. While at Beyond, he built from scratch an e-commerce system and one of the first Internet app stores.
Specialix, where Pettitt worked on communications and networking hardware, was acquired by Pearl Systems. Pettitt's last start up, Relay Media, where he served as CTO and Co-founder, developed a real-time Accelerated Mobile Pages translation program to service more than 100 million pages a month for publishers. Relay Media was purchased by Google in 2017. Today Pettitt serves as technical leader for a large, multi-product team at Google.
"John's deep experience in multiple technology domains – Internet, mobile technologies, patents, and ecommerce – will provide invaluable insight to the LogicMark management team as we seek to grow our company and evolve our products," said Chia-Lin Simmons, LogicMark's Chief Executive Officer. "With his success as a co-founder and entrepreneur – taking two companies public on NASDAQ and selling two successful technology companies – we believe that he will bring a fresh, entrepreneurial perspective to the table and the industry."
"Many seniors in the U.S. today are living in isolation with substandard and hard-to-use technological solutions," said Pettitt. "LogicMark's history of using technology to make assistance affordable and available is a mission I hope to build upon. I want to help LogicMark build out the Care Economy technology platform and make sure people get the appropriate care they need, based on their stage of life."
