Jingit Welcomes Former Walmart Senior Executive, John Fleming, to Its
Board of Advisors 
Retail Industry Visionary to Help Position Jingit as Marketing
Engagement Leader 
MINNEAPOLIS, MN -- (Marketwire) -- 07/30/12 --  Jingit
(www.jingit.com), the first company to instantly reward consumers
with cash for engaging with their favorite brands either on-line or
at their favorite retailer, today announced that John Fleming has
joined the company's Board of Advisors. Fleming is a seasoned
industry visionary, most recently hailing from Walmart, who brings
decades of retail and e-tail experience to his role as a Jingit
senior advisor.  
"The Jingit model -- rewarding consumers with cash, not points or
other meaningless incentives to engage with brands -- is
revolutionary. So we sought to attract a true visionary retail
executive to our Board of Advisors to help guide our business
strategy. John is the embodiment of everything we wanted," said Joe
Rogness, co-CEO of Jingit. "John pioneered countless initiatives
throughout his stellar career at Walmart that took that brand to new
heights in the market. And more than any other retail executive I've
met, John has an incredible skill for knowing what consumers want and
how brands need to anticipate and respond. He's already made a strong
impact at Jingit and I look forward to his ongoing contributions to
build our market presence."  
Prior to joining Jingit, Fleming spent years at Walmart in a variety
of positions. As executive vice president and chief merchandising
officer for Walmart U.S., Fleming was responsible for all products
and services, new formats, customer experience and Walmart.com. As
Walmart U.S.'s chief marketing officer, Fleming was responsible for
customer strategy, communication and experience. He also led the
broadening of Walmart's customer proposition to "save money, live
better" and created a new brand identification. 
Fleming originally joined Walmart as chief merchant of Walmart.com,
and also served as chief operating officer, eventually becoming
president and CEO of Walmart.com. Under his leadership, Walmart.com
initiated the "site to store" program and grew into one of the
country's top three destinations for online shopping. 
"Every retailer wants to identify a way to better engage with
customers through to the point of transaction and beyond," commented
Fleming. "But for most organizations, creating that kind of ongoing
brand loyalty can be elusive. From my first conversation with the
Jingit leadership team, I believed they had a unique approach for
solving some of brand marketing's biggest challenges. I'm excited to
work with Jingit to scale their early success within the marketplace
and see their platform and model become an integral strategy for
building brand engagement."  
Earlier in his career, Fleming spent nearly two decades at Target
Corporation. During his tenure, he held various retail and
merchandising positions in the department stores division. Fleming's
final assignment was as senior vice president of merchandising for
Marshall Fields, responsible for the Fashion divisions.
