In a prepared statement, David O. Schwartz, president and CEO of 21st Century Marketing, said, "Lon [Mandel, CEO and president of SMS] and I have often spoken about a merger over the course of our 30-year friendship. à [We] couldn't be more pleased to join in an organization that is not only led by a forward-thinking and progressive CEO, but also shares the same corporate culture and values that we at 21st have."
