Dan Currell Named CEO of DCA
The Digital Commerce Alliance announced that Dan Currell has been named Chief Executive Officer of the non-profit trade association. The former Managing Director of AdvanceLaw took on the new role in mid-June, 2022.
Dan’s a proven executive with a talent for leading collaboration among the world’s largest companies. His deep knowledge of best practices, combined with his regulatory and legal acumen, are the qualities DCA needs to advance to its next stage of growth.
Shopify & Twitter Team Up
Twitter’s foray into e-commerce intensified with the announcement that it has partnered with commerce platform Shopify. Shopify merchants can now simplify their customers’ buying process on Twitter.
Both companies benefit by boosting their social-commerce offerings. Enabling more shopping via social media drives engagement and revenue. This move helps Twitter be more on par with competitors Facebook, Instagram, TikTok and Snapchat.
Economic Output Down, Job Market Strong
In the first half of 2022, output fell but companies were still hiring. While some economists fear a recession is imminent, others maintain that without job loss, a downturn’s not in the cards.
The correlation in this pandemic cycle hasn’t been seen before. Inflation rates and interest rates are rising. At the same time payrolls are increasing, open jobs remain unfilled, and fewer Americans collect federal unemployment checks. We might not know what to call the unusual period we’re experiencing now, but we’re learning that economic indicators don’t always move in sync.
