Data marketing is a powerful tool that helps businesses make informed decisions, target
customers more effectively, and ultimately, boost the bottom line. But with great power comes

B2E President Keith Snow said his company had been a long-time licensee of Experian
marketing data, but the increased collaboration would significantly grow the number of
businesses nationwide that are able to utilize data-driven marketing.

“This model will enable businesses to leverage Experian’s industry leading marketing data to
drive more targeted marketing programs in a cost-effective way,” Snow said. “The ability to build
programs around such highly accurate, trusted data means that businesses can ultimately have

consumer experiences are the result of targeted campaigns,” said Jeremy Hlavacek, Chief
Commercial Officer, Experian. “We look forward to further empowering businesses through
B2E’s clients.”
