Seattle, WA. December, 2001 Kinesis, a Seattle-based company that provides customer experience management (CEM) strategies, has added Jon Mittmann, formerly director of member services for HomeGrocer.com, to its Advisory Board.

"An experienced and talented advisory board is critical to Kinesis' continued growth and success," said Eric Larse, Kinesis managing member. "Jon's strong customer service and marketing background with high-growth, high profile companies fits the bill. His success in both areas make him an invaluable asset to the Kinesis team."
