Paris, August 30, 2018 – Splio announces the appointment of Charles Wells as Chief Marketing Officer, underlining the group’s objective to develop its digital and international marketing activities.

“His product expertise and his global connections make him the ideal person to communicate about our platform to marketers around the world.“
More than 30 years of tech and digital marketing expertise
After holding several positions in digital marketing as a Chief Product Officer in Europe, the United States, and the Middle East, Charles Wells made a three-year venture into the e-commerce sector where he acquired new ideas, including valuable insight into the intricacies of e-marketing and the complexity of building a harmonized omnichannel marketing strategy. Bolstered by this newly acquired knowledge, he returned to loyalty marketing, joining the management team at Splio.
“Thanks to a platform that is perfectly adapted to meet the ever-changing needs of the market, Splio has been able to attract great brands over the years. The company has, thus far, been focused on developing a robust and market-driven platform. It has now reached a stage where increased investment in marketing is required to go to the next level. I am delighted to join the Splio adventure by putting my experience and knowledge of product and digital marketing at the service of this excellent example of the best in French Tech,”
explains the new CMO.
Online. Offline. Aligned.
Charles Wells’ first task is to design a global marketing and communication strategy for the group. Already, he was at the forefront of the group’s rebranding effort undertaken this year, which aims to reposition the brand on the market by reworking products and pushing a more up-to-date visual identity. The new logo, the new tagline “Online. Offline. Aligned,” and the new website position Splio as the leading omnichannel loyalty marketing platform totally focused on on- and offline convergence based on customer insight.
