Money Mailer’s CEO loved the company so much, he bought it
Getting to know a company’s CEO and leadership team will tell you a lot about that company. In the case of Money Mailer Chairman and CEO Gary Mulloy, who has a long history in the direct mail marketing industry, here’s the most important thing to know: He was so impressed by the franchise opportunity when he first encountered the company in the early 2000s, he knew immediately he wanted to buy it.
