PRINCE FREDERICK, Md. – Nov. 27, 2018 – DirectMail.com, a full-service omni-channel and direct response engagement agency, is proud to announce new leadership following the retirement of long-time CEO and partner, Kirk Swain.

Shawn Salta, third-generation owner, has been appointed president and chief operating officer, and Chris Zarnosky is the new executive vice president.
Bob Salta, CEO and CCO, DirectMail.com, said, "I am honored to take the helm of DirectMail.com and continue the long-standing Salta-Swain vision of helping our staff, customers and industry colleagues navigate the constantly changing marketing landscape. It is more challenging than ever for companies to reach potential customers and entice them to take action. It is my mission to leverage strategic, data-backed, omni-channel marketing techniques to break through the noise and propel our customers to success."
As CEO and CCO, Bob Salta will remain intimately involved in all aspects of the company, but will primarily work with clients to help them achieve greater results through data and creative solutions.

Shawn Salta, president and COO, said, "DirectMail.com has built a full-service agency that leverages the best in technology and data analytics to produce marketing campaigns with strong results. It is my personal goal to not only continue this tradition of executing high-performing marketing campaigns, but also to look inside our own walls to streamline operations and enhance our offerings to constantly align with the changing needs of our industry-leading client base."
Shawn Salta joined the company in 2002, originally serving in a marketing support role. Over the years, he transitioned to sales positions, and then to leadership roles in business development, business operations and mail operations where he streamlined processes to increase overall enterprise efficiency.
