Last week, Button Founder and CEO Mike Jaconi took the stage at PerformanceIn Live with one of our partners— Director of Global Partnerships, Sam Richards. As one of the biggest events in the performance marketing space, Mike and Sam were joined by hundreds of leaders from companies including L'Or√©al, Uber, Google, IBM, Etsy, Expedia, and many (many!) others.
