Prior to joining Tiger Pistol, Donny spent over 6 years at Simpli.fi, as the VP of Sales, working with brands and agencies to reinvent media buying with programmatic strategies.

His approach to sales and marketing is grounded in the belief that the best innovation occurs when technology companies and brands work together to meet a dynamic market.
“Tiger Pistol is in the unique position of empowering brands to connect with their local partners while also enabling shoppers to purchase any way they want,” said Dye. “Too many times marketers are told that collaborating with their local partners is too complex or can’t be done.

Not only is this collaboration the core of the Tiger Pistol platform, but we also believe it is vital to capture modern local shoppers who are now purchasing via curbside pickup, in-store, delivery, and directly from the brand. Tiger Pistol gives brands a true local connection to where they are sold and in turn connects to their consumer. There is simply no replacement for this level of collaboration, and the results speak for themselves.”

“Donny excels at building high performance teams and fostering new sales opportunities that align with Tiger Pistol’s business goals and contribute to our aggressive growth,” said Elliott. “An enthusiastic, dynamic leader, I am confident Donny will continue to elevate Tiger Pistol’s sales and marketing efforts with strong leadership and innovative problem-solving.”
