SAN FRANCISCO--(BUSINESS WIRE)
Flow Networks, creator of the Flow Platform that connects consumers with the brands they love and value at the point of sale and beyond, announced today that it has appointed Don Kingsborough as an advisor. Don has been a serial entrepreneur for 30+ years and in addition to his other advisory positions, he is the CEO of One Market and the President of Westfield Retail Solutions.
“Flow Networks has found a way to capitalize on the untapped potential of the payment notification”
Don has had a storied career as former President of Atari, then founder and CEO of toy company Worlds of Wonder. He went on to found and lead Blackhawk Network, a company that established the prepaid card industry with a $2.5 billion dollar valuation. Don’s proven experience in retail innovation, expertise as a growth company executive, and vast network of merchant and industry connections make him an ideal advisor for Flow Networks as it begins its own innovation journey.
As Flow Networks advisor, Kingsborough’s role is to assist and challenge company leadership on issues of strategy and execution, and he will also help Flow through introductions to merchants, investors, and industry leaders.
Flow Networks Co-Founder Chris Boncimino is quick to point out that a Flow Networks advisor appointment isn’t a stereotypical one, “We have an exciting platform that’s revolutionizing the way card issuers and merchants think about connecting with their customers. We’ve created a platform that builds the connective tissue of retail relationships. When you have an opportunity this special to change the way people think about transactions, we want to work with some of the greatest minds in payment. Don is a key piece of that puzzle.”
“Flow Networks has found a way to capitalize on the untapped potential of the payment notification,” said Kingsborough. “Their platform enables engagement on every transaction. Where the traditional merchant’s payment ends when the paper is handed to the customer, the Flow Vault securely and privately delivers the receipt to the original payment method.”
He added, “Flow Networks’ unique value proposition is that it opens a new channel for real-time consumer-merchant interaction. What the team at Flow Networks is doing to revolutionize the payments space is of immediate interest to me. Their platform is closing the distance between customers and merchants at a most critical time. I am thrilled to be a part of that.”
The Flow Platform is an intuitive and powerful platform built on top of any payment feed, enabling card issuers and merchants to engage with customers, multiple times a day, based on the customer’s real-time payment behavior. This new level of merchant-customer connectivity reduces waste, increases engagement, and builds brand value.
