Database marketing giant KnowledgeBase Marketing hired Barbara Palmer as SVP of marketing, effective September 13. It is a new position for the agency, which is the data services arm of the Wunderman marketing agency network.

Palmer said her position was created as KnowledgeBase Marketing is “now expanding globally and in [different] markets and industries. [The company] wanted a more strategic approach."

“Creating this executive marketing position is a logical next step following our expansion into Europe in May of this year and Barbara's expertise will be an invaluable asset to our growing organization,” said Gary Laben, CEO of KnowledgeBase Marketing, in a statement.
