Maropost has recently announced it appointed long standing friend to emailexpert, Dennis Dayman as Chief Privacy Officer (CPO). With matters relating to security, compliance and privacy taking an ever more central place in the commercial considerations of marcom vendors dealing with PII, Dennis is an astute hire. Dennis is a well known figure in the email and privacy industry and brings formidable experience to the role. As Maropost grows they are looking to re-enforce commitments to global privacy and compliance strategies, and Dennis wil take the lead in overseeing any privacy regulations, laws and rules that change the industry landscape and potentially impact the business.
“We are excited to have Dennis join the team,” says Ross Paquette, Maropost Chairman and CEO. “Being an innovative force in customer engagement is all about data. We have therefore a responsibility to our clients, as well as to a variety of regulators, to be good stewards of that data. Dennis will be on point to make this a reality.”
Dayman’s role as CPO will include managing, coordinating and monitoring Maroposts’s day-to-day data protection and privacy compliance. To ensure compliance, Dayman will establish appropriate operational controls, policies, online guidance and reporting processes. In his position, Dayman will also be tasked with monitoring the organization’s adherence to these measures.
“This is the kind of challenge I love.” said Dayman. “There’s nothing better than rolling up your sleeves and getting down to the hard work of data protection. It’s a discipline that can throw the occasional curve ball your way, but if you design your controls well and monitor them diligently, you will not run into serious difficulties which I look forward to continuing at Maropost.”
Prior to joining Maropost, Dayman served as Return Path’s Chief Privacy and Security Officer before it was acquired. He previously held the same position at Eloqua, which was later acquired by Oracle. Among many other accomplishments, Dayman was notably appointed to the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) in 2018 to serve on their Data Privacy and Integrity Advisory Committee (DPIAC). In this position, Dayman contributed input to DHS on programmatic, policy, operational, administrative and technical issues that relate to personally identifiable information, as well as data integrity and other privacy-related matters.
