ATLANTA, Ind. (March 17, 2016) – Reynolds Farm Equipment, a leading agricultural equipment supplier, announced today that technology executive Mitch Frazier has joined the company as chief marketing and innovation officer.

Frazier joins Reynolds after more than seven years in software marketing, having led marketing at sales productivity leader TinderBox and marketing strategy, communications and investor relations at digital marketing pioneer ExactTarget.

“We’ve built Reynolds by delivering customers the best equipment, parts and service for agriculture, commercial and residential lawn and garden products,” said Gary Reynolds, president of Reynolds Farm Equipment. “Mitch brings proven strength and leadership to guide our growth and position us to exceed the expectations of every customer.” 

As chief marketing and innovation officer, Frazier will lead Reynolds’ marketing efforts, the company’s rapidly growing eCommerce business and spearhead digital transformation projects across the company’s network of seven retail locations. He will also serve as a member of the company’s executive team.

Prior to Reynolds, Frazier served as vice president, marketing at sales technology leader TinderBox.

He founded the company’s investor relations program and successfully completed one of the largest software-as-a-service initial public offerings on the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE:ET) in 2012. He also led marketing and communications for the company’s 2013 $2.5 billion acquisition by Salesforce (NYSE:CRM).
