GSI Commerce Inc. has appointed executives to lead two marketing units for the e-commerce services firm. John Healy becomes CEO of MBS Insight, which focuses on customer database marketing. Joe Gagnon is the new president of e-Dialog, an e-mail marketing provider. Both companies are part of GSI’s Global Marketing Services division.

Prior to that, he was vice president and global leader of IBM’s Business Consulting Retail Industry business.
“Innovation in e-mail marketing is critical to helping our clients achieve their goals. I am confident that Joe’s leadership coupled with the dedication and intense focus on clients from the entire e-Dialog team will position the company and clients for long-term success,” says Saridakis.
