Furniture Today Staff -- Furniture Today, January 23, 2013
GLASGOW, Ky. - Industry veteran Rick Harrison has been named president of Eyeconic, a multimedia technology company based here offering turn-key solutions in digital signage, digital menus and interactive kiosks.
Harrison also is CEO of rich media specialist GET Interactive and will continue in that role.
According to Jeremy Jacobs, CEO of Eyeconic, the executives - who have worked on a variety of projects together - recognized a synergy between their businesses.
"In formalizing the relationship with our company, Rick will lead sales and business development for all Eyeconic product, allowing me to focus exclusively on continued product design and development," Jacobs said.
Harrison said he sees "tremendous growth opportunities in the digital space now, specifically in the area of in-store environments, which I believe will be the next frontier from a digital perspective. Brick-and-mortar retailers can't manage the volume of product and information that an online merchant can, and they can't train their people to become experts in every product category for every brand. Our goal is to provide retailers with selling tools that replicate the online experience for consumers and move them quickly and effectively through the purchase funnel in order to drive sales."
